The Saints will be without Stuart Armstrong, who has a recurring calf issue. That appears to be the only issue for the home side, as Mohamed Elyounoussi, Moussa Djenepo, Ibrahima Diallo and Jack Stephens will all be available for the mid-week clash.
Southampton Predicted XI: McCarthy; Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters; Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond; A. Armstrong, Adams
The Foxes, however, have four players out, with Youri Tielemans only having just returned to training following his calf issues.
Ricardo Pereira is also out with a thigh issue, as well as Wesley Fofana and James Justin, who are still on the sidelines with long-term injuries.
Leicester City Predicted XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Soumare, Ndidi; Lookman, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
Despite the injury issues for Leicester, they seem like the more likely team to get the result on the night. We’re predicting Leicester to just edge this.
Prediction: Southampton 1-2 Leicester City
