Today's Best Bet: Friday, October 25


Leigh Copson: Back Leicester City to beat Southampton @ 6/5 bet365
* Odds correct at 12:25 BST on 21/10/2019

A repeat of their sensational 5000/1 Premier League title success a few years ago is likely to be beyond Leicester City, but this is shaping up to be a very good first full season under Brendan Rodgers. The Foxes turned to Rodgers back in February after a horrendous run of results led to the sacking of Claude Puel, and the Northern Irishman pretty much transformed their form overnight as he led Leicester on an excellent run of results that helped them secure a top-half finish, giving supporters plenty of optimism for life under the former Liverpool and Celtic chief. And so far they have delivered.

Leicester have collected 17 points from their first nine games to become fixtures in the top four over the past several weeks and they go into this match on the back of a home win over Burnley – the perfect response to the defeat they suffered at Liverpool prior to the international break. That 2-1 success against the Clarets was their fourth win in five competitive fixtures and seventh in nine games, so it goes without saying that Rodgers’ team are brimming with confidence heading into Friday night’s trip to Southampton. The same cannot be said about their hosts, however.

While the Foxes are flying at the top end of the table, Southampton are hovering just above the relegation zone thanks to goal difference. Saints recorded a creditable 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, ending a run of three straight defeats in the league, but they have not won a top-flight fixture since squeezing a 1-0 win at newly-promoted Sheffield United well over a month ago, and they have not managed a competitive victory at St Mary’s since the 3-1 win over Wolves back on April 13! In fairness to them they have hosted tough opposition – namely Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea – but they have also been soundly beaten 3-1 at home by Bournemouth so I am not about to blame their poor home form on bad luck with the fixtures.

Simply put, Saints desperately need a home win and the good news for them is that Friday’s visitors, Leicester, have so far managed only one Premier League victory on the road this season. However, Southampton have the worst home record in the top flight, having mustered just one point at St Mary’s while conceding 10 goals, so there is little reason to be confident about their chances here. Something has to give and going by the two teams’ recent form I have to favour Leicester City to overcome their ‘travel sickness’ and make it back-to-back Premier League successes since the international break.
