With both teams appointing new managers and desperate for points, Leeds vs Southampton pits 19th against 20th. If either team were to lose this game, they could find themselves stranded at the bottom and struggling to find a way to avoid relegation.
The Leeds vs Southampton live stream takes place Saturday, Feb. 25.
► Time 3 p.m. GMT / 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT / 2 a.m. AEDT (Feb. 26)

Despite their desperate situations, the two teams come into this match in different moods. Leeds have not won a league game since November and suffered a demoralizing defeat to a struggling Everton last time out. Southampton may be bottom of the table but there were bright signs in a shock 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the previous game, and having appointed interim coach Ruben Selles until the end of the season, fortunes may be about to change.

Leeds vs Southampton preview
It took over two weeks, but Leeds have at last appointed a successor to Jesse Marsch. Former Watford manager Javi Gracia is a surprise appointment who does at least know the Premier League but work permit issues look likely to keep him away from taking charge of this game. Whoever is in charge, the remit for this game is a simple one. Win. At home against the only side below them in the table, if Leeds cannot find a win here then they will be hard to come by. Goalscoring has not been a problem for Leeds, they rank in mid-table for goals scored, but with top scorer Rodrigo injured until April, they now need to shore things up at the back. Winger Luis Sinisterra and defender Pascal Struijk could return from injuries in time for this massive game.
Southampton looked lost under Nathan Jones but it took Ruben Selles, who was already a coach at the club, just one game to give the Saints hope. He spoke before the win over Chelsea of his belief he was ready to become a manager and the Southampton board have now given him his chance to put his money where his mouth is. Captain James Ward-Prowse scored a trademark freekick to win at Stamford Bridge, his 8th goal of the season, but top scorer Che Adams could return after missing the last game with an injury. A defeat at Elland road may however sour the feel-good mood that has returned to Southampton.
With any loser in a potentially catastrophic league position, the Leeds vs Southampton live stream will have huge ramifications on the Premier League table and the relegation battle this season.
