Lacklustre Leicester hold Southampton to goalless draw

The Foxes are winless in their three previous Premier League games played on a Thursday (D2 L1), with their only such home game finishing in a 6-1 defeat against Spurs in May 2017.

The Saints will have the opportunity to forget their Premier League struggles this weekend when they face Chelsea in an FA Cup semi-final, but go into it knowing they have missed a golden opportunity to strengthen their survival chances.

Leicester threatened twice inside the opening quarter-hour. Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy moved the ball quickly on the edge of the penalty area before Mahrez's low shot was smothered by goalkeeper Alex McCarthy. We have to ask more questions than we did of Leicester tonight. "The performance was good with lots of good chances and good play on the floor, good tempo". The striker seized a loose ball seven yards out but his shot on the turn was blocked at point-blank range by Hamer.

Neither side could break the deadlock come the break, but Mark Hughes's charges continued to enjoy the better opportunities, Long sending a powerful effort goalwards on the turn in the 57th minute, only for Hamer to rush and deny his opponent.

Issues under discussion at this year's summit include ocean conservation, cybersecurity and trade among the member countries. Others are skeptical that increased Commonwealth trade can make up for reduced access to Britain's biggest market, the EU.

Leicester then nearly scored when McCarthy did well to fingertip Vardy's volley over the crossbar.

Southampton survived some intense late pressure from the hosts but Leicester were unable to find a breakthrough and Saints held on.

"We will have to wait until the rest of the season to see if that's a significant point one way or the other", said Hughes, whose side are four points behind Swansea - who they play in Wales in the penultimate match of the season.

LEICESTER: Hamer, Albrighton, Dragovic, Maguire, Chilwell, Mahrez, Adrien Silva (Barnes 90), Ndidi, Gray (Choudhury 90), Iheanacho (Diabate 76), Vardy.

SOUTHAMPTON: McCarthy, Bednarek, Yoshida, Hoedt, Soares, Romeu, Hojbjerg (Redmond 88), Bertrand, Ward-Prowse (Davis 58), Tadic, Long (Austin 73).
