Southampton clash with Leicester City this afternoon as the Saints look to continue their march and maintain their place behind Chelsea in the Premier League.
The Saints have conceded just one goal at home this term, whilst the Foxes have scored just one on the road. This game falls on Morgan Schneiderlin’s birthday, just as reports linking him with a January move begin to resurface- but fans of the South Coast club are confident he’ll stay put.
Elsewhere, fans are calling for a positive result to commemorate the Frenchman’s birthday and also want a positive atmosphere for Leicester’s Nigel Pearson and Dean Hammond.
Those who are thinking Schneiderlin will leave Southampton are living in past…. (1) #saintsfc

Schneiderlin: ”We want to keep second place and try to catch Chelsea.” The kid is wishing for too much there.

I hope Pearson gets a good reception at #SaintsFC today, he did well for us and would have liked him to stay longer.
