It has been an interesting start for both sides to life in the Championship, with both surely happy given they the respective starts they have made to life back in the division.

Southampton have suffered just one defeat, so far, for example, although last time out will surely have worried boss Russell Martin given his side were on the receiving end of a brutal loss away at Sunderland.

Indeed, the Saints were beaten 5-0 at the Stadium of Light, with Tony Mowbray's side well and truly putting them to the sword.

Having had two weeks to dwell on that result, the players will surely be keen to put it right on Friday night.

Leicester City will provide a very tough test once again, though, particularly given the excellent start they have made in terms of results.

Enzo Maresca's side sit 3rd in the at this early stage, with four wins and one defeat to their name so far.

Like Southampton, too, though, Leicester too suffered their first league defeat ahead of the international break, having been beaten 1-0 by Hull City.

This means that Friday night's clash should be an exciting one, with both sides surely keen to put their defeats last time out right this time around.

"Leicester, meanwhile, also saw their perfect start come to an end as they were beaten at home by Hull. It is a chance for both to bounce back, but I'm expecting a response from Southampton."
