Premier League

Team News Leicester: Jamie Vardy is red hot right now for the Foxes, and they are safely staying up in the Premier League for next season. Their counter attacking style is perfect against a team like Southampton, and with Mahrez distributing the ball brilliantly, they should thrive. Kasper Schmeicel is not playing in net, so they could be a little bit shaky in that aspect, but Harry Maguire and Wes Morgan form a brick wall as center backs, and should be just fine in front of whomever receives the start, Jakupovic or Hamer. The Foxes are always competitive, whether they’re playing Manchester City or West Brom, which bodes well for them in this situation.


Team News Southampton: Put quite simply: Southampton are going to be relegated. They are a side with a decent amount of talent who have been abysmal all season. They offer nothing defensively, VVD left for Liverpool after boycotting the season, and they have had no good results since then. Their last five results are: LLLWL, and they are led offensively by Charlie Austin who has 7 goals and hasn’t played in months and won’t for the rest of the season. They have been an utter disappointment and deserve to be relegated, with only 28 points and 5 points behind Swansea.


Leicester City will win this game. They are far more talented than Southampton, but most importantly: they execute. The Saints are going to be relegated and will face a very tough road to promotion next year, with most of their stars likely to lose. The Foxes will nearly secure the relegation of Southampton today.
