If you’re a Saints fan you must be thinking Christmas has come early this season. Tipped for relegation pre season, they have a form line of Played 10: Won 7, Drawn 1, Lost 2 (2-1 at Liverpool and 1-0 at Tottenham) Scored 21 and Conceded 5. Still undefeated at home their form line is more impressive at Played 5: Won 4, Drawn 1, Scored 15 and Conceded 1. Much of the success this season has been down to the incredible goals scoring of Graziano Pelle who has hit 9 goals in 13 games in all competitions. At Feyonoord he hit 50 goals in 57 games and has now taken over from Mario Balotteli as the main striker for Italy. But it’s not only Southampton’s attack that has been excellent, in defence they are ranked top for having the best defence in the league, conceding just 5 goals in 10 games.
Leicester won’t relish this game, coming into it on the back of four defeats and one draw. They last won in that epic encounter with Man United way back in September. Their away form reads Played 5: Won 1 (Stoke 1-0) Lost 4, Scored 1 and Conceded 7. Hovering just above relegation only the brave would expect them to get anything out of this match.
With Southampton having the best defence in the league and Leicester only scoring the one goal away this season I can’t see Leicester scoring. I’d advise going for some value on the correct scores with Southampton to Win by 2 goals to 0 @ 15/2 (8.5) and Southampton to Win by 3 goals to 0 @ 12/1 (13.0). Then for new customers I would cover this with my risk free bet on Leicester to have less than three shots on goal @ 5/2 (3.5)
