History of the Southampton v Leicester City fixture

Southampton prepare to entertain Leicester City at St. Marys on Wednesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Saints are clearly on top, winning 17 and drawing 13 of the 32 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at St. Marys was two seasons ago, in March 2002, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premiership match.
