Leeds United’s position in the table suddenly looks a little better after back-to-back victories over Norwich and Wolves. Both matches were won in stoppage time, with the Wolves game in particular being full of drama. Leeds were 0-2 down at halftime but a Raul Jimenez red card changed the game and Leeds scored three second half goals to secure the points. The importance of that result cannot be overstated. 

The crucial win did come at a cost. Leeds lost four players through injury, compounding problems they've had all season. While striker Patrick Bamford is expected to be out for around six weeks, they will be boosted by some returning faces against Southampton. Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper, Raphinha and Diego Llorente could all feature; these players will be desperately needed if Leeds are to avoid dropping into the Championship. 

Meanwhile, Southampton are enduring a disappointing run of the form, having lost their last three Premier League games. What’s been really frustrating about this poor run has been the quality of opposition faced: Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Watford. The Saints would have expected to get something from arguably all of these matches, but instead came away empty handed. 

In more positive news, Southampton come into this one at close to full strength, so will feel it’s the perfect opportunity to put their bad run behind them and get back to winning. There’s essentially no chance of relegation or European football for the Saints at this stage of the season, but if they can string a few results together they could finish in the top 10. Which will surely be the aim. 

Here's how they line up:

Leeds: Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Dallas, Klich, Forshaw, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison, James.

Southampton: Forster, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Diallo, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi, Adams, Broja.

How will this one play out? Find out by watching the Leeds vs Southampton live stream, which we'll show you how to do below.
