LEI vs SOU Dream11 : Tricky test awaits an angst filled Southampton side as they try to stop a never ending slump for themselves
They survived relegation in the bygone edition of the Premier League but come the upcoming season, Southampton new the same epitomic mistakes would not serve them well. The side stepped out in the ongoing edition of the exhibition league looking to overhaul their form and stop being underachievers as they strived to unlock the true potential prevelant in the side.
Disappointingly for them, after a spree of a couple of promising performances, the side have regressed and waned, unravelling to find themselves sitting in 17th place with just the two wins from 9 matches. It’s been a familiar fallout for the side, one which has left them in a dire position, languishing extremely close to the relegation spots when they take on Leicester City in the first match of gameweek 10 come today.
What will give the home side some kind of confidence ahead of today’s encounter though is the fact that they managed to stall Wolverhampton to a 1-1 draw in their previous result, a defensive display they’ll be required to emote today as well. They are up against a side who are in third place in the Premier League, sitting in an unprecedented spot after the opening couple of months of the league with 17 points with their playing 11 stepping upto the plate in tandem for the side.
Leicester City come into today’s encounter having defeated Burnley 2-1 previously, a result which saw them show gustiness and reslliance as they scrapped through to the three points. Southampton will be looking to use that game as a teaching lesson for them today, trying to absorb their opponent’s attacking gameplan and try to hit them with some quick moving and flowing counterattack moves.

LEI vs SOU Dream11 Goal-Keeper
If Southampton are to win this encounter, they’ll require their goal-keeper Angus Gunn to be at the top of his game and pull off an extremely well delivered performance. The stop stopper is someone who is more than capable of doing so as well, a player who has impressed us by cascading hs way a slew of well cued saves.
LEI vs SOU Dream11 Defenders
While Leicester City have been ravishing in their attacking soirees, regaling us in some well worked plays and luscious attacking moves with their players fulfilling ther affinity for goals, the side have also thrived due to ther ability to curb opposition’s from scoring goals. And two players who have been pivotal in laying down that foundation for the side have been Caglar Soyuncu and Ricardo Pereira with the two players not only putting in astute defensive displays but also contributing in the side’s attacking moves.
Ben Chilwell comes in as well for us while from the opposition we have opted for Yan Valery and Jan Bednarek, two players who’ll be asked to hold fort and show perseverance and valour in the face of a relentless attack.
LEI vs SOU Dream11 Midfielders
James Madison, Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes have all been pivotal to Leicester City’s attacking gameplans, player who come imbued with the acumen needed to cut short oppositions and blow them apart. The three have intertwined together perfectly, not only moving in tandem to traverse past defenders but laying up the goal for each other as well with some astute and articulate passes to see all three come into our setup.
We are choosing Denis Praet from the side as well as we opt for an entire facet of picks from the visiting side, players who have been key to the side’s consummate success up till now.
LEI vs SOU Dream11 Strikers
Just the one player comes into our side over here with us deciding to venture in with Che Adams from Southampton. He has lost his reckoning as a regular player for the side but should come on as a substitute today at a time when the opposition are tiring, a period of play when he can easily maraud his way to a goal.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Barnes will be our captain for this clash with Perriera being chosen as the vice-captain.
