Leicester City winger Marc Albrighton is expecting another close match against Saints.

Saints have not scored in their last five visits to the King Power Stadium – all of which Albrighton has played in - and lost on penalties after a third successive goalless draw there in the Carabao Cup in November.

Albrighton told the Leicester Mercury: “We’ve had two close games against them this season.

“They’ve been doing well recently, so it’s going to be a difficult game for us, as they are fighting for their lives, but we’re capable of beating them, especially on our home turf.

Southampton are a massive club, they have been for years now and it’s a team that should be in the Premier League, so they’re going to make sure that they do their utmost to stay in the Premier League.”
