The Premier League returns on Saturday with another round of matches this weekend as Leeds United face off against Southampton in an intriguing clash at St. Mary’s Stadium. It’s not crazy to say that Southampton struggles against Leeds. They have just scored 2 goals against Leeds’ 9. They have struggled to win at home against Leeds, with the last two matches played at Southampton being won by Leeds with a clean sheet.
Leeds United have shown flashes of improvement under Jesse Marsch and will need to build momentum ahead of an important series of matches. The Yorkshire outfit was impressive against Wolves last week and will use every tool available for them to keep the ball rolling. On the other hand, Southampton were defensively poor against Tottenham Hotspur and have several issues to address at the moment.
Now let’s take a look at what’s available for Leeds. First of all, both Luke Ayling and Junior Firpo are “ahead of schedule” in their recoveries from knee injuries according to Marsch. Although either is likely to feature until late August at the earliest. Adam Forshaw and Luis Sinisterra are nearing returns to training. Captain Liam Cooper had his preseason ruined by a freak Achilles issue and his involvement this weekend remains in doubt.
While Southampton is eager to record their first win of the season, they have a very difficult challenge in front of them. Things are especially going to be tough as they will be without Theo Walcott, Nathan Tella, and Tino Livramento as the trio remains in the recovery room. Southampton finished last season with a 9-13-16 record and 3 points above Leeds. But if we take into consideration the history between these two teams, it’s very clear why Leeds are the favorites coming into this match.
