Leicester conceded first at Vicarage Road last weekend but that proved to be a mere bump in the road as the Foxes ended up routing Watford 5-1. James Maddison got the equaliser and then both Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes bagged a brace as the Foxes obliterated their opponents.
Leicester then followed that win by holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw Stamford Bridge, with Maddison again on the scoresheet. Those two results all-but confirmed that the Foxes will finish in the top half of the Premier League, but Brendan Rodgers’ will still want his side to finish strong in their final game.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Leicester – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is the next Leicester Premier League fixture?
Leicester finish their season at the King Power Stadium, taking on Southampton in a 16:00 kick-off on Sunday. The Foxes are aiming to win consecutive home games against the Saints since April 2016, having won this fixture 2-0 last season via goals from James Maddison and Harvey Barnes.
The Foxes have a good record against Southampton in recent years – who can forget the 9-0 win at St. Mary’s in 2019? – and fought back to draw in their previous meeting this campaign. That game finished 2-2 after Leicester twice went behind but battled back thanks to goals from Jonny Evans and Maddison once more.
What are the odds that Leicester win their next game?
Leicester are 19/20 to beat Southampton on Sunday, with the draw 27/10. The visitors are in poor form and haven’t won in over a month, and Leicester have lost just two of their last 12 Premier League home games.
Southampton have dropped 29 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, the most since Spurs in 2007-08. You can get 15/2 on Southampton to lead at half-time and not to win, just as they did at St. Mary’s in the last match between these two sides.
Jamie Vardy is back in the team and back in the goals. He has scored six times on the final day of the Premier League, with only Harry Kane having scored more out of all players currently playing in the competition. A Leicester win with Vardy getting the opener is 19/5.

What is the latest Leicester injury and transfer news?
Leicester have welcomed back Jamie Vardy, James Justin and James Maddison into the squad in recent weeks, but Ricardo Pereira only has an outside chance of being involved in the club’s final game of the campaign. Wilfred Ndidi is currently rehabbing after a knee injury and hopes to return in time for pre-season training.
Who are Leicester’s key players?
Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel remain important members of Brendan Rodgers’ squad, both for the talent on the pitch and experience. Harvey Barnes and James Maddison have cemented their place in the side, while Youri Tielemans brings added quality.

What are the Leicester odds to finish in the top half of the Premier League?
Leicester are now 1/6 to finish in the top half of the Premier League following their away win at Watford and draw at Chelsea. It would take something dramatic for the Foxes to slide out of the top ten, and a bottom half finish is now 7/2.
Who is the manager of Leicester?
Brendan Rodgers has brought an attractive style of play to Leicester and led them to back-to-back fifth placed finishes in the Premier League. Not only has Rodgers re-introduced European football to the King Power Stadium, he saw his side win their first ever FA Cup trophy as they ran out 1-0 winners against Chelsea in May.
Where is Leicester’s stadium?
Leicester play their home fixtures at the King Power Stadium. With a capacity of 32,261, the King Power Stadium is the 20th largest ground in England.
