Follow live coverage as Leicester City face Southampton in the Premier League today.

Manchester City are reigning champions after a dominant 2020/21 season and Pep Guardiola's side are favourites to win it again boasting as they do one of the best squads in Europe.

European champions Chelsea have proven they have what it takes to dethrone City, however, having done it in last season's Champions League final and will be hoping to add a domestic title to the one won in Porto.

Liverpool were winners back in 2020 ending a 30-year wait for league glory and Jurgen Klopp is sure to have them back challenging again at the sharp end this season too while Manchester United will be looking to be back in the title picture with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to his former club in the summer.

It's not all about the action at the top though with Norwich, Watford and Brentford promoted to the top tier for 2020/21 and hoping to hold their own against the best English football has to offer and avoid the drop.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

Leicester end the season in eighth place, overtaking Wolves after Liverpool's 3-1 comeback win over Bruno Lage's men. It will be a long summer, however, for 15th-placed Southampton, who end the campaign in dire form after being on the wrong end of a rout at the King Power Stadium.

Well, we asked whether we'd see more entertainment after the break, and Leicester did not disappoint! Maddison and Vardy scored a goal apiece to put them in control, with Perez coming off the bench to grab a superb double after Ward-Prowse halved the arrears. It's a fantastic end to a largely underwhelming season for the Foxes, but Southampton end the campaign on a six-match winless run.

Lookman is released down the left after Leicester win possession on halfway. The winger opts to recycle possession, however, with the Foxes just two minutes away from ending the season with a win.

Perez is crowded out by two Southampton shirts as he looks to wriggle into the area on the right. The visitors have possession in their own half now, with Leicester quicklu getting back into shape as they sit on their advantage.

To Southampton's credit, they've been much improved since falling two goals behind, but Hassenhuttl must be absolutely furious to have seen them give up a third goal immediately after Ward-Prowse's penalty put them back in the game.

We're into a minimum of seven minutes of added time, as Fofana makes a brilliant challenge on Ward-Prowse as the Saints skipper shaped to shoot.

Fofana steps in to prevent Long from leading a Southampton attack on the left wing. The Saints come again, but Salisu fouls his man at the back post as he looks to meet Ward-Prowse's cross, and the pressure subsides.

Leicester City vs Southampton

Leicester fail to release Vardy in behind as they hunt a fourth goal at the end of a promising break. Less than five minutes remain at the King Power Stadium, but we're expecting a lengthy amount of injury time after that earlier clash of heads between Armstrong and Evans.
