Leeds United vs Southampton team news

Premier League football is back and the end of the season is starting to draw near.

After a brief international break, Southampton visit Leeds to resume the domestic campaign.

In terms of team news, Southampton have no new injury concerns.

Alex McCarthy and Nathan Tella remain sidelined with injury despite rejoining training, while midfield pair Oriol Romeu and Will Smallbone are available after overcoming illness.

For Leeds, they will be without striker Patrick Bamford after aggravating his foot injury in their game against Wolverhampton Wanderers a couple of weeks ago. The England striker could miss the rest of the season.

Liam Cooper, Raphinha, Kalvin Phillips and Diego Llorente could all feature for Leeds today.
