Southampton are still waiting for their first victory of the 2021-22 Premier League season, but that does not tell the whole story, with the Saints putting in some impressive performances this term.
A record of four draws and three defeats from seven matches has seen Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s side collect four points, holding Manchester United, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Manchester City, but they have lost their last two against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea.
Southampton’s position of 17th is far from ideal, but there is a lot of football to be played this season, and Hasenhuttl will have been encouraged by certain aspects of his team’s early-season performances.
The Saints have actually lost their last three games against Leeds in all competitions, though, including both Premier League meetings between the two teams last term, and they have not overcome the Whites on home soil since August 2011 in the second tier of English football.
The Hampshire-based side will view their next two matches against Leeds and Burnley as the perfect chance to put some points on the board, while they will then end the month with a clash against Watford.
Nathan Redmond is again expected to start through the middle alongside Adam Armstrong, but there could be a change in a wide area, with Nathan Tella potentially being replaced by Mohamed Elyounoussi.
As for Leeds, Bielsa has admitted that Raphinha is a major doubt due to his expected involvement for Brazil against Uruguay, while Bamford has again been ruled out with an ankle problem.
Kalvin Phillips should be available despite a calf issue, while Adam Forshaw and Crysencio Summerville are fit, but Robin Koch and Luke Ayling remain on the sidelines for the Whites.

Rodrigo is again expected to lead the line for Bielsa’s team, while Jack Harrison is in line to feature in a wide area if Raphinha is not risked from the start at St Mary’s.
There had also been a slight concern over the availability of Stuart Dallas, but the midfielder has been passed fit and will feature for the visitors on Saturday afternoon.

McCarthy; Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters; Walcott, Romeu, Diallo, Elyounoussi; Armstrong, Redmond
