Leicester vs Southampton Prediction: Last Match Summary

Leicester made a great start, preventing Arsenal from gaining any momentum, but Jesus gave his team the lead with an incredible goal. 

He then added a header from a corner kick to give his club a 2-0 lead at halftime.

A William Saliba own goal and a James Maddison shot that deflected off the goalie gave Leicester City two goals in the second half to appear to tie the game, but the Gunners responded each time with goals from Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli, both of whom received help from Jesus.

Just before halfway, Leicester got a penalty kick that was later cancelled after a video review determined that Jamie Vardy intentionally sought out Arsenal goalie Aaron Ramsdale.

On the Other Side, Saints was taken aback when By the hour mark, Rodrigo had given the visitors a two-goal lead, and Leeds appeared to be heading for their second victory of the year. However, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s tactical change offered Saints a crucial lifeline.
