Leicester City opened up their Premier League campaign with defeat to Manchester United, but a 2-0 victory over Wolves put the Foxes on the front foot.

On Saturday (15:00) Claude Puel takes his side to the south coast to face Southampton, the club which sacked the French boss at the end of the 2016/17 season.

The Midlands side have to cope without Jamie Vardy following his red card at the King Power stadium last week. Kelechi Iheanacho should get the nod up front after coming off the bench against the newly promoted side.
