We bring you the key numbers and facts ahead of Southampton's meeting with Leicester City, in the Premier League, on Sunday.

– Leicester City have never won a Premier League match at St Mary’s, with their last win away to Saints in the competition coming in April 2000, at The Dell, when they triumphed 2-1.

– However, Southampton have won just one of their past seven league games against Leicester, drawing two and losing four.

– If Saints lose, it will be a fifth consecutive top-flight defeat – the last time that happened for them in a single season was in 1998/99.

– Saints last failed to score in three successive Premier League matches in February 2015.

– But they have scored twice in each of their last two home games against Leicester – with Shane Long netting both in a 2-0 win in November 2014, while José Fonte and Virgil van Dijk were on target in last season's 2-2 draw.
