Southampton Predicted XI: Leicester City (A)

Southampton Predicted XI: Leicester City (A) Southampton will be looking to move out of the relegation zone this weekend when they travel to Leicester City. The Saints have been in mixed form of late and head into this game on the back of two draws. They held Chelsea to a 0-0 stalemate in their last Premier League outing before coming away from Derby with a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup third round. Nevertheless, full focus will be turned back to the team’s ventures in the top flight and a testing visit to the King Power Stadium awaits Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side. Southampton will have some absentees to deal with for this clash, making their lives far harder.

Ten-man Southampton produced a fine second-half rearguard display to beat Leicester City 2-1 and move out of the Premier League's relegation zone.

Nampalys Mendy's clumsy foul on Shane Long allowed James Ward-Prowse to drill home the opener from the penalty spot in the 11th minute, ending a run of four league visits to the King Power Stadium without a goal four Southampton.

Yan Valery was sent off shortly before Long double the lead in first-half injury-time, but a much-improved Leicester halved the arrears through Wilfred Ndidi just before the hour.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's side faced relentless pressure from thereon in, but Southampton held firm for a crucial three points – their first away top-flight win at Leicester since 2001 – that lifted them out of the bottom three.

Leicester were all at sea but nearly levelled when James Maddison's free-kick fell for Wes Morgan, who was denied on the line by Jan Bednarek.

Saints saw Valery receive a second yellow for a needless pull on Marc Albrighton, but they were 2-0 up by the break.

Southampton eyeing move for Skrtel

Southampton eyeing move for Skrtel Southampton are one of three Premier League clubs eyeing a potential move for Fenerbahce central defender Martin Skrtel this month. According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, via Sport Witness, Southampton, West Ham and Crystal Palace are all looking into the possibility of bringing the experienced defender in during the transfer window. Skrtel joined Fenerbahce from Liverpool in 2016 and has been a key figure for the Turkish giants over the last two-and-a-half seasons. He made over 200 Premier League appearances for Liverpool in a nine-year spell at Anfield and could provide the experience Southampton need at the back for the rest of the season. The 34-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, but the Saints may look to secure a cut-price deal this month. Ralph Hasenhuttl is looking to make additions to his squad, with Southampton only above the relegation zone on goal difference, and a central defender is thought to be top of the wishlist.

Ricardo Pereira failed to deal with Alex McCarthy's punt and Long outmuscled Mendy on the left of the box before curling past Schmeichel.

Leicester unsurprisingly had more verve after the break and Ndidi knew little about his effort off the knee from Pereira's cross but it was a lifeline nonetheless.

Unsurprisingly it was one-way traffic from there and Jamie Vardy should have done better to direct Maddison's cross goalwards from eight yards.

Harvey Barnes and Maddison each tried their luck from range and Ndidi nodded wide from close range as Leicester pushed for a late leveller, but there was too much predictability about their play as Southampton returned to the south coast with a welcome win.

What does it mean? Saints taking shape under Hasenhuttl

Saints' initial upturn in fortunes under Hasenhuttl stuttered with a four-match winless streak in all competitions before this fixture, but there were plenty of encouraging signs here. The team pressed, harried and transitioned to attack well, while defensively they were solid following Valery's red. The threat of relegation obviously still looms, but on this evidence it is a battle they can certainly win.

Southampton player ratings: Leicester (A)

Southampton player ratings: Leicester (A) Southampton pulled themselves out of the relegation zone with a massive 2-1 win away to Leicester on Saturday. The Saints took the lead through James Ward-Prowse after he converted from the penalty spot early on. Young defender Yan Valery was then sent off for a second yellow, with two poor challenges. Despite going down to ten men, Southampton quickly doubled their lead as Shane Long made the most of a defensive mistake to race clear and curl the ball into the far corner.

Long stakes his claim as Redmond impresses

Hasenhuttl this week spoke of his desire for a new striker and allowed Manolo Gabbiadini to re-join Sampdoria, but Long – making his first league start since November 4 – did his chances of regular minutes no harm, cleverly winning the spot-kick and taking his goal well. Nathan Redmond also deserves credit. The winger can be a mercurial talent, but was a constant livewire with his pace and direct running on the break.

Mendy's moments of madness prove costly

There were several under-par first-half performances from Leicester, with Ben Chilwell not his usual reliable self at full-back. But it really was a day to forget for Mendy, who gave away the penalty and allowed himself to be beaten far too easily for Long's effort. He was unsurprisingly hauled off at the break as part of a double change from ex-Saints boss Claude Puel, which included an outing for the recalled Barnes.

What's next?

The Foxes will look to bounce back when they make the trip from east to west Midlands to face Wolves next Saturday, while a rejuvenated Southampton welcome Everton the St Mary's Stadium.

Vicente Iborra set for Villarreal move.
Villarreal are poised to sign Leicester City midfielder Vicente Iborra during the January transfer window, according to Spanish outlet Marca. Iborra is reportedly no longer part of Claude Puel’s plans at the club, giving Villarreal the all-clear to negotiate a deal for the 30-year-old defensive midfielder. The Spaniard was also subject to interest from former clubs Sevilla and Levante respectively, though a move to the Yellow Submarine is almost finalised according to the report. Iborra, who is said to already be in Valencia to negotiate his move, has fallen down the pecking order at Leicester following the emergence of Hamza Choudhury and is keen on a move away from the King Power Stadium. The midfielder has featured just 11 times in all competitions this season, scoring just once against Fleetwood in the second round of the Carabao Cup. Leicester are hoping to recoup the majority of the €15million spent on signing Iborra back in 2017, and Villarreal are reportedly willing to up their initial offer of a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, to meet the Foxes’ expectations. A brace from former Arsenal man Santi Cazorla helped Luis Garcia’s men to a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid on Thursday evening, though the Yellow Submarine are currently sat just one place above Athletic Bilbao in the relegation zone.
