Our prediction: Leicester v Southampton

Leicester have lost a little bit of steam in recent weeks but some of that could be put down to their injury shortage being compounded by the missing trio last weekend.

The Foxes will be determined to mark Rodgers' reign with silverware as well as a Champions League place, with Kelechi Iheanacho bang on form and Jamie Vardy continuing to prowl, they have every chance of turning over the Saints at Wembley.

Southampton will shelve their league form and fix their full attention on this showdown. With Danny Ings in the XI, they always boast a chance of scoring but Leicester should be too hot to handle here.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-1 Southampton (15/2 at bet365)
