Leicester will host Southampton at the King Power Stadium on May 22 for their penultimate game of the Premier League season. Rodgers’s men still have two games left to play this season, so they can still move a couple spots up or down the standings, while Southampton only has one more as they are completely locked in 15th place. Leicester is looking to close out the season in the best form because if everything goes well for them, they can finish with a 4-game win streak.
On the other hand, Hasenhüttl’s side has absolutely nothing to worry about for this match and the best they can look to do is to end their 4-game winless streak. We all know that teams always wish to finish the season in the best form possible, but for this case, it’s basically pointless for Southampton. They have been dropping games against teams sitting at the lower third-part of the standings, and they are clearly struggling to come up with a way to win games as they are probably already making plans for their next season.
Rodger’s men’s most recent wins were against Watford and Norwich, the two teams sitting at the bottom of the standings and already secured their relegation to the 2nd division. Playing against Southampton isn’t necessarily a challenge, but it definitely isn’t going to be as easy as playing against relegated teams. Now, if we take into consideration that the Wolves only have 1 game left to play, Leicester winning their next two matches would basically secure them 8th-place, even if it doesn’t really matter in the big picture.
When these two teams played against each other back in December, it ended up in a 2-2 draw, although it doesn’t really matter because they were in a much different situation back then. The Premier League season is coming to an end, and even if this matchup doesn’t have a lot of implications for the standings, it’s always fun to see how the teams play in their last games.
