St. Mary's Stadium

Key Timings & Information For Southampton Visit

Leicester City begin a nine-game December schedule by heading to St. Mary's Stadium to tackle Southampton on Wednesday (7:30pm kick-off).
More on this story...

The Foxes have won their last two matches in all competitions, dispatching Legia Warsaw in the UEFA Europa League, before Sunday's 4-2 success over Watford at a snowy King Power Stadium. The Saints, meanwhile, have lost their last two - against Norwich City and Liverpool.

In April, when City last visited the south coast, James Ward-Prowse and Jonny Evans found the net in a 1-1 draw between the sides, although Leicester did enjoy a 2-0 success at home in the league, plus a one-goal victory in the semi-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.

Centre-back Jonny Evans rises highest to secure a draw for City at St. Mary's Stadium.

Ten-man Southampton held Leicester City to a 1-1 draw at St. Mary's Stadium on 30 April, despite losing Jannik Vestergaard after just 10 minutes. James Ward-Prowse in fact put the Saints ahead from the penalty spot despite City's dominance on the south coast.

Jonny Evans' header rescued a point for the Foxes, though, as goalkeeper Alex McCarthy made a string of impressive saves to frustrate the visitors.
