Goals: Leicester City U23s 7 Southampton U23s 1

All the goals from Seagrave as the Club's youngsters registered a 7-1 win over Southampton B in Premier League 2 Division 1.

It was Arsenal who came out on top when the two sides met at Meadow Park in the reverse fixture in December 2020. Defender Darragh O'Connor had levelled the scores after Calum Chambers' opener but Folarin Balogun found a late winner to hand the Gunners a 2-1 win. 

Assistant Senior Professional Development Phase Coach Ben Petty assessed the challenge facing the young Foxes on Monday: "We want to finish really strong and, there's no doubt about it, there's some real quality out there.

"For the wrong reasons, there’s pressure on the last three games. The last two or three seasons, we've been up there fighting for it and now we've got a fight to stay in it.

"It's good experience for the players. If we produce what we produced in the second half [against Southampton], then we'll be okay."

Supporters will be able to access a full round-up of the evening's action on LCFC.com following full-time at LCFC Training Ground, while reaction and highlights are set to be published on LCFC TV in the days following the fixture.
