Southampton v Leicester City live match updates
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Leicester City's Championship fixture at Southampton.
On paper, it is the toughest game so far for Enzo Maresca. City are favourites to win the Championship but the Saints are second favourites. There is pressure on both teams to achieve promotion this season.
And it should be an intriguing battle with the sides playing to similar styles, both trying to dominate possession and work the ball through the lines methodically. But on Friday night, they can't both have more than 60 per cent of the ball.

Speaking of Friday nights, no fan of either club will need reminder what happened at St Mary's on one Friday night in 2019, City running out in 9-0 winners in an astonishing, record-breaking match. Maresca and City will be happy if it finishes 1-0 in their favour this time.
For fans travelling down to the south coast, there is potential for them to see Conor Coady make his first appearance for the club. The summer signing from Wolves is due to at least be on the bench after recovering from the foot fracture he suffered in pre-season.
We are live at St Mary's to bring you action, analysis, and reaction on our blog below. Team news is due at 7pm, with kick-off at 8pm.
