Leicester City v Southampton live stream, BT Sport, Saturday 16 January, 8pm GMT

Leicester and Southampton will both be looking to remain in touch with the top of the Premier League table when they go head-to-head on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have responded well to last month’s 2-0 home defeat by Everton (opens in new tab). Leicester (opens in new tab) followed that up with respectable draws against Manchester United (opens in new tab) and Crystal Palace (opens in new tab), and victories over Tottenham (opens in new tab) and Newcastle (opens in new tab). As the midway point of the campaign approaches, the Foxes are sitting pretty towards the top of the table. It is certainly not beyond the realms of possibility that Leicester mount a title challenge this term.

To do that, they will probably need to improve their home form. No team in the Premier League has collected more points on the road than Leicester this season, but the Foxes rank in the bottom half of the home table. Just three of their eight matches at the King Power Stadium have ended with the hosts collecting all three points, and Southampton (opens in new tab) have the tools to hurt Leicester on their own patch this weekend.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men became only the second side to beat Liverpool (opens in new tab) in the Premier League this season when they put the champions to the sword in their last Premier League outing. That win made it three games unbeaten for the Saints, who have not even conceded a goal in that time. Southampton have now lost just one of their last seven league games and head to the East Midlands full of confidence.

James Maddison and Jamie Vardy are both expected to be fit after minor injuries, but Cengiz Under is unlikely to recover from an ankle problem in time. Dennis Praet is also out for the hosts, but Ricardo Pereira 

Southampton’s list of absentees is lengthier, with Danny Ings, Jannik Vestergaard, Nathan Redmond, Moussa Djenepo, Michael Obafemi and Mohamed Salisu all set to miss out for a variety of reasons. 

You can get 3/4 on a Leicester win with Betfred (opens in new tab), where new customers can bet £10 to get £30 in Free Bets + 60 Free Spins. Southampton are available at 18/5 and the draw at 11/4.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch Leicester City v Southampton live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
