Premier League
7.45pm Thursday

Southampton need three wins from five games to have a decent chance of survival but they have gained maximum points just once since November and are heading for further disappointment at the King Power Stadium.

Saints played well for long periods against Chelsea but lost the game, conceding three goals in ten minutes, and are going to find it tough to recover.

Leicester have lost two on the bounce, virtually ending their Europa League qualification hopes, but they have the tools to expose Southampton's dodgy defence.

Recommendation
Leicester
2pts 7-5 bet365, Betfair, Betfred
