The hosts are looking to bounce back from two straight losses in the top flight, having been beaten 1-0 by Wolves last time out after a 4-2 defeat by Arsenal. Both of those results came on the road and – though Bielsa’s players will have no fans to roar them on – Leeds will hope to reverse their fortunes now that they are back on home turf. Southampton, meanwhile, recorded an encouraging 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea in their last outing to snap a club-record six-game losing streak in the Premier League. A 9-0 demolition by Manchester United came within that dismal run of results, and Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men will be keen to record their first win in the division since 4 January – when they beat champions Liverpool – to finally put that loss behind them.
Leeds enter tonight’s fixture in 12th place in the Premier League on 32 points, and 14th-placed Southampton – who have 30 points – could leapfrog their opponents with a victory this evening. Follow live updates from Leeds vs Southampton in the Premier League below.
