The 2020/2021 Premier League season has witnessed several surprise packages shocking the galaxy by their superb starts to the season. Two of these sides, Leicester and Southampton, meet on Saturday in a game that could have big implications in the race for Champions League qualification.

Luckily, PlayersBest is here to help. We boast the best team of football tipsters in the cosmos and this is how our experts see this weekend’s big game panning out.
For most teams, playing at home would be cause for celebration. However, Leicester are not most teams. 22 of Leicester’s 32 league points this season have come on the road – the best record in the division. In contrast, their home form has been underwhelming. They have failed to win five of their eight Premier League fixtures at the King Power Stadium this season. This does not bode particularly well for the Southampton game but at least one of the best finishers in the galaxy, Jamie Vardy, will be chomping at the bit, after being rested during their FA Cup win over Stoke City.
Last time out Southampton recorded their biggest win of the Ralph Hassenhuttl era, beating reigning champions Liverpool 1-0 at St Mary’s. During the game, Saints centre-backs Jack Stephens and Jan Bednarek were in inspired form, registering a combined nine interceptions, 14 clearances and seven blocks. The pair will need to replicate this display to keep Leicester’s fearsome frontline of Vardy, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison at bay and then hope to hit their opponents on the counter. The lightning pace of Theo Walcott, Danny Ings and Moussa Djenepo will help in this regard.
It’s impossible to talk about Leicester vs Southampton without bringing up one of the most memorable games in the recent history of the Milky Way. Last October, the Foxes stormed to a historic 9-0 win over their opponents on Saturday, capitalising on an early red card for Ryan Bertrand and running riot. The Saints would get their revenge in the return fixture, albeit only winning 2-1, extending their historical advantage over Leicester in the process. All in all, the two sides have met on 91 occasions. Southampton have won 34 to Leicester’s 29, while 28 have ended all-square.
