Tip Leicester Southampton
on 12 January 2019
Leicester City host Southampton in the Premier League this week and the Foxes will look to build on their win over Everton. They have been quite inconsistent this season and Puel must urge his side to put together a run now. It will be interesting to see how Leicester City turn up for this one. Southampton are in the relegation battle and they will be desperate for a win. If Leicester aren’t up for this one, it might end up costing them. The Saints have shown improvement under Hasenhuttl and they will fancy an upset here. It will be interesting to see if they can keep out the likes of Maddison and Vardy here. The home side are better on paper and they will be favourites heading into this game.

Our Leicester Southampton tip
Neither side will want to drop points here and they are likely to take a cautious approach. A defeat would be bitterly disappointing for them. It could turn out to be a dull affair and both sides could cancel each other out. A low scoring contest is very much on the cards here. Under 2.5 goals seem likely.
