Tip Southampton - Leicester
Leicester City are third in the Premier League and will go second with a win in this game. Southampton are one place above the relegation zone, but a heavy defeat would see them drop into the bottom three. Southampton have only eight points this season, just the two wins and both of those came away from home. They drew at Wolves last weekend but need to start getting some points at St Mary's. Southampton have just the one point at home and that's the worst record in the Premier League. Including the end of last season, Southampton have gone six home league games without a victory. Their current form is poor with one point from their last four league matches with ten goals conceded.
Their opponents are in much better form. They are third in the table and a win here will see them close to within five points of leaders Liverpool. Leicester have four points from their four away league games but it's been a tough fixture list. They drew at Chelsea, won at Sheffield United but lost to both Liverpool and Manchester United. A trip to Southampton is a bit easier and they have a great chance of earning the three points here. That's the tip for this match.
