Date & Time: October 16th, 2021 – 20:00 (IST)
Venue: St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton
It’s 16th vs 17th down on the South Coast with both Southampton and Leeds in need of three points quickly.
Leeds have picked up a solitary win so far this season in the league, while Southampton are yet to win a game but have drawn 4 of their first 7 outings.
The Saints are always a tough nut to crack and with points against Manchester City and Manchester United already in the bank, they have displayed plenty of resolve this term.
However, they are yet to win a game this season and their lack of serious goal threat looks to be in danger of hampering their Premier League status.
Alex McCarthy is the first-choice keeper for the Saints and he will be looking to keep the Leeds attack at bay here.
Jan Bednarek is currently the first-choice centre-half for Southampton while Kyle Walker-Peters will provide industry from full-back.
Oriol Romeu is a proven Premier League performer and he along with Stuart Armstrong will be super important in the heart of the Saints midfield.
Che Adams will be keen to shake off an injury knock and feature here whilst Adam Armstrong will lead the line once again.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have endured a tough start to the season, with only one win recorded from their first 7 games.
They find themselves 16th and in need of a result if they are to climb the table quickly this term.
Ivan Meslier is one of the most notable stoppers in the Premier League and he could be busy here at St Mary’s.
Liam Cooper and Diego Llorente are sure to be the defensive partnership in the middle, with Kalvin Phillips adopting the quarterback role in front of them.
Raphinha and Dan James are two real tricksters in wide areas who are capable of producing big moments while Patrick Bamford will be looking to bang the goals in again this term.
