Leicester City are due to play against Southampton in a Premier League encounter at the King Power Stadium on Friday night.

The Foxes will be looking for yet another victory to retain their place in the top four after an impressive start to the 2019-20 campaign.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester side will also go into the match full of confidence after having defeated Burnley 2-1 during their previous Premier League game last weekend.

Leicester have one big injury concern ahead of the game against the Saints as James Maddison is doubtful for the game, according to a report which was published by Goal.

The gifted attacking midfielder has an ankle injury and had to play through the pain during the recent game against Burnley.

Matty James meanwhile will continue to be out of action for the long-term.

Leicester will be the favourites to win the game. The Saints have won just one out of their previous five Premier League matches and are currently in 17th position on the standings and above the relegation zone, only on goal difference.

Leicester by contrast have so far exceeded expectations this season.

They are currently in third position on the standings after having won five out of their nine games to date.

The chemistry between Leicester attacking pair Youri Tielemans and Jamie Vardy has been very exciting so far this season.

Leicester will fancy their chances of potentially securing a top four finish this season.

This could ultimately be their most successful season since their historical Premier League winning season of 2015/16 if they manage to keep up the momentum.
