Southampton vs Leeds United prediction and preview
Southampton have returned to winning ways last time out having gone five games without a win. The Saints registered back to back 3-1 wins at home against Crystal Palace and Fulham as Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side have now won three and drawn one of their last four Premier League games at St Mary’s. Southampton have a chance to rise as high as 12th in the standings if they clinch the six available points, having previously slipped closer to relegation.
Leeds United also come into the clash on the back of consecutive wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have accumulated an impressive 53 points from 36 games in their first top-flight campaign since 2004. The visitors have picked up 18 points from a possible 27 in the last nine league matches, with wins over Tottenham and Man City, and draws against Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool. Leeds will be favourites for the clash despite Southampton’s good form and will hope to cap off their road trip with a win.

Leeds United are closing in on a top-half finish in their first season back in the Premier League and their dreams of Europe are not completely out of the question yet, either.
As the 2020/2021 campaign reaches its grand finale, the Whites are ready to hit the road for one last away game.
It comes at St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday night (6pm), against a Southampton team who swept against Fulham in their most recent fixture.
Of course, Leeds visit the south coast in fine form, too, having produced a clinical second-half display to pick up a resounding 4-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.
However, with such a strong Premier League contingent in the two European showpieces this term, there is every chance of more qualification spots being up for grabs – depending on which side claims which trophy.
Here is how you can follow every kick when Leeds take on the Saints.
