4-2-3-1 Southampton Predicted Lineup Vs Leicester City: Austin To Start Up Front?

Southampton will be gearing up for a tough challenge when Leicester City visit them in a midweek Premier League action. It will be also the first visit of Claude Puel to the St Mary’s Stadium as the French manager will be in the opposing dugout.

Southampton have started to settle into their lives in the Premier League this season as Mauricio Pellegrino has been able to turn things around finally. The manager is getting under the skin slowly and it has become quite evident as the Saints picked up five points from the last four matches.

Puel also made a fantastic start to his new journey. The French manager led his side to three back to back wins and will be hoping to get lucky for the fourth time.

Saints have been pretty solid defensively as new arrival Wesley Hoedt has been pretty fascinating in his work. Their main problem lies in their attack as they have been pretty sloppy in front of the opponent goal.

Predicted 4-2-3-1 Southampton Starting Lineup Vs Leicester City

Defence

Fraser Forster has been a constant in the goal and he is likely to be in the starting lineup against the Foxes.

Virgil van Dijk has been an ever-present in the Southampton backline and the Dutch defender cannot manage any mistake against the Foxes.

Maya Yoshida will be alongside him in the defence.

Cedric Soares didn’t feature in the last match as he was carrying an injury. But the Portuguese international has returned to training and is in the contention to feature on the right-hand side of the defence.

Nathan Redmond is a natural choice for the left back position.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg performed brilliantly against the Gunners so Mario Lemina has to sit out again as the former is likely to be the preferred choice in the midfield.

Oriol Romeu will be required to be very steady in the midfield as the Gunners have enough firepower to do the damage.

Attack

Pellegrino needs to sharpen his attack and he could call up Sofiane Boufal to the starting lineup. The 24-year-old is gunning for a start and if he is on song Saints would definitely fancy their chance.

Nathan Redmond has been on the tail of the opposition defenders with his marauding run through the flanks.

Dusan Tadic will be in the no. 10 position.

Charlie Austin needs to fire and he has to take any chance that comes up in this match.football formations
