Southampton have made a disappointing start to the season with just four points taken from their opening seven games that puts them in 17th place. Their last game before the international break saw them go down 3-1 to Chelsea although it is 1-1 before the 77th minute dismissal of James Ward-Prowse. At St Mary’s, the Saints have played three times drawing two and losing one with these games producing a combined total of just three goals.
Leeds will also not be pleased with how things have begun with six points from their opening fixture which puts them once place and two points above their opponents here. They headed into the break with a 1-0 victory over Watford thanks to a Diego Llorente goal. Away from Elland Road, United have drawn at Burnley and Newcastle and were hammered 5-1 by Man United on the opening day of the season.
Southampton vs Leeds: Match Stats
Both teams are missing key players with Southampton missing the suspended James Ward-Prowse and Che Adams while Leeds will likely miss Raphina who is set to arrive back late from international duty while Patrick Bamford is a doubt. The game could be low on chances and quality so backing the game to finish all-square looks the best option.
You can also get a little bit more out of the price by taking the game to end in a draw and under 2.5 goals. This allows us to keep 1-1 and 0-0 both on side which given the key personnel missing expect this to be a low-scoring one.

Both the meetings between these sides last season were won by the Yorkshire outfit with a 3-0 home victory and a 2-0 success on the road. Patrick Bamford netted in both games last season and will hope he is passed fit here. The two games between these teams in 2020/21 were goalless going into the break.
