The Southampton vs Leeds United live stream features two teams lingering above the relegation zone, and two managers under pressure to turn things around.
Southampton go into the match with just four points and no victories. Leeds United, who have won just one game themselves, are just one league position and two points above their opponents heading into the weekend’s fixtures.
The reasons for their respective slow starts are fairly clear. Southampton are one of the Premier League’s lowest goal scorers so far, having put just five past their various opponents. They seem to be missing Danny Ings, who departed for Aston Villa this summer. Leeds United, meanwhile, have one of the Premier League’s leakiest defences. Only Norwich and Newcastle, who occupy the league’s bottom two positions, have conceded more goals than them in their opening seven matches.
However, Southampton will not be helped by the absence of Che Adams; the Scotland striker is unavailable due to a muscle injury picked up on international duty. The home side will also be without Jack Stephens, who has a knee injury.
Worse still, captain James Ward-Prowse is suspended following his sending off against Chelsea prior to the international break. Ibrahima Diallo replaces him in midfield, while Romain Perraud, Armando Broja, Moussa Djenepo and Mohamed Elyounoussi also come in as Ralph Hasenhuttl rings the changes.
Leeds manager Marcelo Biesla has also had to deal with some selection headaches. Winger Raphina scored his first goals for Brazil in the early hours of Friday morning U.K. time and is missing here, while striker Patrick Bamford, midfielder Kalvin Phillips and defenders Robin Koch and Luke Ayling are all out with injuries. Tyler Roberts, Jack Harrison and defender Pascal Struijk come in.
Here's how they line up:
Southampton: McCarthy, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Perraud, Djenepo, Diallo, Romeu, Elyounoussi, Broja, Redmond.
Leeds United: Meslier, Shackleton, Llorente, Cooper, Dallas, Struijk, James, Klich, Roberts, Harrison, Rodrigo.
