Leicester v Southampton: match preview

Leicester host Southampton in a game that could be perceived as a dead rubber but for Brendan Rodgers it is a chance to finish a challenging season on a high. Victory at home to Southampton could be enough to secure eighth, which Rodgers maintains would be an impressive achievement all things considered, his side reaching the semi-finals of the inaugural Europa Conference League. Meanwhile, a first win in six games would lift the mood at Southampton before the summer. “Apart from the top six and West Ham being above us, who have supposedly had a fantastic season, then it shows you how well these players have done,” Rodgers said.
