Team news and rosters

PositionLeicester roster
Goalkeepers Ward, Smithies, Iversen
Defenders Justin, Fofana, Söyüncü, Bertrand, Evans, Amartey, Pereira, Vestergaard, Castagne, Thomas
Midfielders Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Dewsbury-Hall, Mendy, Ndidi, Praet, Soumaré
Forwards Vardy, Iheanacho, Pérez, Daka

For a team anticipated to be near the top end of the battle for Europe beneath the Premier League's nominal Big Six, it has been - alongside West Ham, the team they typically rival for that seventh spot in recent times - a tough start to the season for the Foxes.

Brendan Rodgers is a wily operator, but his side continue to mutate away from the never-say-die heroics of their title triumph six years ago now, with just a handful of key faces still on deck. One of course is Jamie Vardy - and the forward will not leave people wondering, even in his advancing years.

Predicted Leicester starting XI: Ward; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Castagne, Tielemans, Ndidi, Justin; Maddison, Iheanacho; Vardy.

PositionSouthampton roster
Goalkeepers McCarthy, Caballero, Lis, Bazunu
Defenders Walker-Peters, Lyanco, Stephens, Perraud, Livramento, Salisu, Bednarek, Bella-Kotchap, Simeu, Valery
Midfielders Romeu, Aribo, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, S. Armstrong, Djenepo, Elyounoussi, Diallo, Walcott, Lavia

Forwards

A. Armstrong, Adams, Mara

Ralph Hasenhuttl has quite often proven an adept operator at taking his Saints side to a string of over-performed results since he took the helm at St Mary's Stadium, helped in no small amount by James Ward-Prowse and his England ambitions.

But the midfielder will miss out on Qatar 2022 for sure unless he can inspire a pick-up in fortunes for this team, who have invested heavily over the off-season in a bid to finally establish themselves as potential contenders for a European race.

Predicted Southampton starting XI: Bazunu; Bella-Kotchap, Bednarek, Salisu; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Lavia, Djenepo; Armstrong, Aribo; Adams
