Leicester City

After losing two straight against third-running Manchester City and table-toppers Liverpool on December 22 and December 27, respectively, Leicester City (14-3-4 win-draw-loss, 45 points) bounced back in their next two matches, racking up victories against West Ham United, 2-1, on December 29, and Newcastle United, 3-0, on New Year’s Day. The Foxes, under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, dominated possession in both games and fired a combined 18 shots on goal.

Equally impressive was Leicester City’s defense, allowing the Hammers and the Magpies to hold the ball by an average of 33%. Amazingly, their goals in the past two games came from different players with Kelechi Iheanacho and Demarai Gray producing against West Ham and Ayoze Perez, James Maddison and Hamza Choudhury finding the bottom of the net against Newcastle. Unless something bad happens, Kasper Schmeichel is expected to have a boring night in the pipes as his teammates upfront will give nightmares to the opposing defense with their high-powered offense.

Players to Watch: Jamie Vardy (17 Goals, 3 Assists); James Maddison (6 G, 3 A); Ayoze Perez (5 G, 4 A); Youri Tielemans (3 G, 3 A); Kelechi Iheanacho (3 G, 2 A).

Southampton

After succumbing to a 1-2 setback against West Ham United on December 15, Southampton (7-4-10, 25 points) have yet to lose a match in their last four outings and three of them resulted in victories for their side. In that unbeaten streak, the Saints have beaten fourth-ranked Chelsea and sixth-seed Tottenham Hotspur to climb to 12th spot in the English Premier League table.

The Ralph Hasenhuettl-managed team will look to resume their surprising second-half run, this time against the Foxes. In their last game against Tottenham Hotspur on New Year’s Day, Danny Ings scored the only goal of the match in the 17th minute.

More impressively for the Saints, their defense, led by goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, held the Spurs’ attackers in check, holding them scoreless over the 90-minute stretch. That defense will be challenged anew by Leicester City with the hope of upsetting the second-ranked XI and resume their climb to the Premier League Top 10.

Players to Watch: Danny Ings (13 Goals, 1 Assist); James Ward-Prowse (4 G, 2 A); Nathan Redmond (2 G, 0 A); Moussa Djenepo (2 G, 1 A); Jack Stephens (1 G, 2 A).
