Leicester City’s well-positioned top four hopes could take a significant hit with a loss to Southampton at St. Mary’s on Friday (start time 3pm ET Friday online via Peacock Premium).
The Premier League’s third-place side has a seven-point lead on fifth place with five matches left, but has three fellow top-end hopefuls on the fixture list after Friday’s match and the following Friday versus Newcastle.
Southampton will be looking for a measure of revenge after Leicester knocked Saints out of the FA Cup at the semifinal stage on April 18.
If Leicester gets a win, it will look to Manchester United v Liverpool to see if they’ll be targeting the former or comfortably ahead of the latter.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Southampton – Leicester City, which kicks off Matchweek 34 in the Premier League.

Maybe, just maybe? St. Mary’s is a decent road haul for the Foxes, who had to work hard to take down Crystal Palace on Monday. If Danny Ings does play and James Ward-Prowse gets a chance to do his set piece stardust, we might see an upset. Either way, we think a draw is enough of a statement. Southampton 1-1 Leicester City.
