Southampton vs Leeds team news

Southampton will be seeking to get some points on the board following a disappointing 4-1 hammering away at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend in their Premier League 2022-23 season opener.

Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United won their first game of the campaign, beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 and they’ll be hoping to build on that early season momentum.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will not be able to call on defender Lyanco today as he is out with injury, joining fellow defender Tino Livramento on the sidelines.

Southampton fans will be interested to see if summer signing Sekou Mara will be given his full debut today.

Leeds have a few injuries to contend with ahead of their visit to the South Coast.

Defenders Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling will definitely be out as they recover from injury. Utility player Stuart Dallas is back in light training but will also be unavailable.

Leeds could hand new transfer Luis Sinisterra his full debut after he recovered from a hamstring injury picked up during pre-season.

Southampton vs Leeds pre-match stats


  • Southampton have won four of their past five home league matches against Leeds, with those wins coming across the top three divisions.
  • Leeds have lost six of their last eight league away games versus Southampton.
  • Southampton are two short of 100 league goals in this fixture.


  • Southampton can equal the club league record of six successive defeats, set from January to February 2021.
  • Saints ended last season and started this one with 4-1 defeats - the last team to end a season and begin the next with consecutive defeats by at least a three-goal margin were Watford in 2018-19 and 2019-20; they were subsequently relegated.
  • They have failed to win either of their opening two Premier League matches in seven of the past eight seasons.
  • Saints have won their opening home fixture only once in 23 Premier League seasons, a 3-2 victory against Blackburn Rovers in 2004-05.
  • Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side have dropped 89 points from a winning position, more than any other Premier League club since the Austrian’s first game in charge.
  • James Ward-Prowse has only ended on the winning side in one of the last 12 Premier League matches in which has scored, and none of the last six. He has been directly involved in six of Saints’ last eight league goals, scoring five and setting up one.

Leeds United

  • Leeds have won both of their opening two league fixtures only once in the past 12 seasons - 2018-19 in the Championship - and have not done so in the Premier League since 2002-03.
  • They are looking for three consecutive league wins for the first time since winning their last four games in 2020-21 under Marcelo Bielsa.
  • Patrick Bamford - one goal short of 100 career league goals - has scored in his last three top-flight appearances against Southampton. His first top-flight goal came against Saints for Middlesbrough in May 2017.
  • Winger Jack Harrison created seven chances in their 2-1 win over Wolves, his career-best tally in a league game.
