Preview | May 22

Leicester City-Southampton

Can Southampton stop Jamie Vardy?

The season comes to a close. Leicester hope to extend their streak of two straight Premier League victories at home against Southampton. The Foxes won't take their opponent for granted, as the last fixture between these sides ended in a 2-2 draw. A wider lens on this matchup paints a prettier picture for Leicester, who have secured at least a point in twenty-three of their last thirty-one Premier League matches against Saints.

Leicester | WWLLD | 9th | Top Scorer: J. Vardy (14)

Leicester come in having recorded 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw in recent form. They hold a mid-table position of 9th. The Foxes have recorded a season average 52.7% possession (5th in the league) while taking 11.7 shots per match. Advanced metrics evaluate their average xG (expected goals) at 1.4 this year. Youri Tielemans has been their top tackler this season with 38 tackles won (28th in the EPL).

Southampton | LLLDL | 15th | Top Scorer: J. Ward-Prowse (9)

Southampton come in looking for a boost of confidence after a paltry 1 point over their last 5 matches. Goals have been a luxury as of late. Their average xG (expected goals) over the last 5 matches of 0.7 is 42% less than their season average. They may count on Mohammed Salisu for his defense, he currently leads the team with 45 tackles won (12th in the EPL). They'll look to James Ward-Prowse to lead their attack. He's led them with 52 total shots taken this season (36th in the EPL).

Leicester's forward line should have some fun here, it looks unlikely they'll be matched by Southampton's but we'll soon see.

Leicester-Southampton Prediction: 3-1

Did you know? Southampton have recorded 3 wins, 9 losses, and 6 draws on the road this season.

The Details

Kostas Tsimikas posed a threat out wide all game, registering 15 crosses. In a further display of dominance from the Reds, they completed a massive 440 more passes than Saints.

Kristoffer Ajer put the match away with a third in the 79th minute, and Southampton were shutout as Brentford secured a comfortable win.

The Overview

    • They may have lost the battle for possession (with 40%) but that didn't stop the Bees creating chances. They had 18 shots, which is 5 shots over the league average.
    • Going forward the Saints looked dangerous, amassing 19 shots in total.
    • Although they got the win, the Bees were wasteful in front of goal, only getting 28% of their total shots on target.

The Details

Christian Eriksen posed a threat out wide all game, registering seven crosses, while Kristoffer Ajer put on a show, interceptng the ball 5 times. On a positive note, the Saints won the passing game, clocking up 468 completed passes to the Bees' 314.
