Leicester City: Disappointed game in the FA Cup ( Recent Form: W W L W L )

Leicester City is in seventh place in the Premier League and the Foxes content with it. The goal for Claude Puel and his men is also clear: they have to finish in seventh place with this team. Unfortunately for Leicester City, a number of competitors are following The Foxes. For example, Watford and Wolverhampton have only two points less than The Foxes and Everton can not be excluded if it comes to seventh place. For the time being, Leicester City is in seventh place with 31 points after 21 games. The Foxes will not finish much higher than seventh place, as the deficit at number six Manchester United is already seven points. At Leicester City they can fully focus on the Premier League for the rest of the season. The Foxes were eliminated early in the Carabao Cup and the same goes for the FA Cup. Last weekend Leicester played the away match at Newport County and The Foxes lost 2-1 at Rodney Parade. In Wales, Leicester City, which started with a reasonably strong team, was trailing 1-0, but The Foxes seemed to get a replay out of the heat after Rachid Ghezzal scored the equalizer eight minutes before time. Nothing turned out to be less true, because Leicester City received a penalty three minutes later and was therefore eliminated early in the FA Cup.


Southampton: Replay against Derby County ( Recent Form: W L L D D )

Southampton is doing a lot worse in competition than the Saturday afternoon opponent. Years ago, Southampton and Leicester City were well matched. Where Leicester has remained stable for the past two seasons, Southampton surged further and further away in the ranking. Last season, The Saints were already fighting against relegation and Southampton finally managed to maintain itself. Also this season The Saints are in a relegation battle and for Southampton it is still a hell of a job to maintain. The Saints are currently under the line and have two points less than Cardiff City, the first club above the line. Unlike Leicester City, they can still dream about success in the FA Cup at Southampton. Then Wednesday evening will have to be won when Derby County comes to visit St. Mary's Stadium. Last weekend, Southampton went no further than a 2-2 tie to visit the club from the Championship and next week The Saints have the opportunity to finish the job. On a visit to Derby, Southampton came on a 0-2 lead last week by two hits from Nathan Redmon, but The Saints failed to hold onto that lead in the second half. That is why Derby County is visiting the men of Ralph Hasenhüttl on Wednesday evening.



After all, the bookmakers see Leicester City as a favorite and I can agree with that. The Foxes have much better material than Southampton, that this season must have mainly of willpower. In the last Premier League-game, Southampton took a point of visiting Chelsea (0-0), but Leicester City managed to win 0-1 at Stamford Bridge on December 22nd. I do not think Leicester City will lose points against Southampton and go for a home win.
