Leicester host Southampton on Championship Sunday (watch live, 11am ET on Peacock Premium) as both teams will look to end a season of inconsistency on a high.
The Foxes can finish as high as eighth or as low as 12th (technically, but they won’t fall lower than 11th due to goal difference) as Brendan Rodgers’ side will be motivated to have a fifth-straight top 10 finish. James Maddison and Jamie Vardy have been in fine form late in the season but Leicester will be disappointed they haven’t qualified for Europe once again, as they also lost to Roma in the Europa Conference League semifinals. Leicester will be keen to keep hold of Youri Tielemans this summer but this could be his farewell game for the Foxes.
As for Southampton, well, they will likely finish in 15th place which is really disappointing given the fine run they had in the middle of the season. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have a habit of collapsing late in the season but the Austrian coach actually believes this time it is a positive thing. Why? Well, because their new owners (Sport Republic) arrived in January and they now know plenty of investment is needed in the squad to freshen things up and to try and help this young team push for a top 10 finish next season rather than battle against relegation.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leicester vs Southampton.
