Leicester City host Southampton on Saturday afternoon in a meeting between two sides still waiting for their first Premier League win of the season.

Leicester team news

Leicester's treatment room is still populated by the trio of Harvey Barnes, Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira. While Barnes and Bertrand are expected to shake off knee injuries by September, the luckless Ricardo isn't likely to return from surgery on his Achilles until February.

Injury isn't the only factor governing Brendan Rodgers' team selection as Chelsea are readying an improved offer for Wesley Fofana. What happens with the Blues' third bid remains to be seen.

Leicester predicted lineup vs Southampton

Leicester Starting 11: Ward; Fofana, Evans, Amartey; Castagne, Tielemans, Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall, Justin; Maddison; Vardy.
Bench: Iversen, Soyuncu, Albrighton, Iheanacho, Perez, Daka, Mendy, Praet, Thomas.

Southampton team news

Lyanco overcame a fitness concern last week to make Southampton's bench against Leeds. Long-term absentee Tino Livramento isn't expected to grace the grass of a Premier League pitch until after 2023 rolls around. Theo Walcott may well have acquired match fitness by then but isn't set to be available this weekend.

Given the transformative impact they provided off the bench, Ralph Hasenhuttl may be tempted to start the likes of Sekou Mara and Joe Aribo this Saturday.

Southampton predicted lineup vs Leicester

Southampton Starting 11: Bazunu; Bella Kotchap, Stephens, Salisu; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Lavia, Djenepo; Aribo, Mara; A. Armstrong
Bench: McCarthy, Lyanco, Bednarek, Romeu, Elyounoussi, S. Armstrong, Adams, Diallo, Valery

Leicester vs Southampton score prediction

Leicester swatted Southampton aside with a 4-1 win at the King Power in the final game of last season.

Given their glaring lack of outfield personnel overhaul in the intervening months, Leicester certainly have the side to extend Southampton's winless run in the division to nine matches this weekend.

Prediction: Leicester 2-1 Southampton
