In the 35th minute, Southampton broke away with the ball and cut the Leicester defence open with a ball in behind before Carlos Alcaraz put the Saints ahead. Leicester were the better side but they couldn’t put their chances away which ultimately cost them the game. The match finished 1-0 to Southampton.

Leicester City goalkeeper and defenders

Danny Ward: 6 – made a good save for James Ward-Prowse’s penalty, didn’t have a lot to do, didn’t look like saving the goal, he didn’t even attempt to dive for it.

Ricardo Pereira: 6 – was good to see him back after so long out, he looked fresh and ready. He was good going forward and tried to find Iheanacho or Tete. Linked up nicely with Tete and Maddison at one point to create a good chance in the Southampton box.

Harry Souttar: 6 – closed down the angle, won headers, made some good blocks, came so close to a goal when he hit the bar in the last few seconds.

Wout Faes: 5 – played poor passes that gave the ball away too often in dangerous positions, made a few important interceptions to stop dangerous Saints attacks.

Timothy Castagne: 5 – conceded the penalty which was unfortunate but clumsy, didn’t look like his usual self on the left, he didn’t get forward as much or play as many quick passes.
