In the final gameweek of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign, Leicester City will host Southampton at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening.

Leicester have had an underwhelming campaign and are set to miss out on European football next season after two campaigns in the continent. They held on for a 1-1 draw against third-place Chelsea on Thursday, with James Maddison's stunning opener being the only tangible attack from the Foxes.

Brendan Rodgers' side have picked up 49 points from 37 games and sit ninth in the league table. They will now look to pick up maximum points in front of their home fans on Sunday.

Southampton, meanwhile, have struggled for form over the past three months but have secured safety. They were beaten 2-1 by Liverpool in their last game. Nathan Redmond's early opener got cancelled by former Saint Takumi Minamino before the Merseyside outfit completed their comeback in the second half.

The visitors sit 15th in the Premier League standings, with 40 points from 37 games, and will now target a win to conclude their campaign.
