Leeds United will face off against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium this weekend as they try to pick up a victory on their travels. The Whites managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this clash.

Jesse Marsch could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name an unchanged first team for this game. Hence, we can once again look forward to seeing Robin Koch and Diego Llorente feature as the centre-backs for the Yorkshire club this weekend.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Southampton

Defence

Illan Meslier will operate in goal for the Whites after he shipped in one goal in his last league appearance. As mentioned earlier, Robin Koch will continue to play alongside Diego Llorente at the heart of Leeds’ backline as they look to stop the Saints from scoring this weekend.

Rasmus Kristensen will retain his spot at right-back while Pascal Struijk looks to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will have to defend their penalty box well and try to support the front players on the counter.

Luke Ayling will miss this game because of a knee injury. However, Leo Hjelde will be fit to start on the bench.

Midfield

Marc Roca and Tyler Adams will function as the holding midfielders as they focus on offering decent protection for their teammates at the back.

The talented trio of Jack Harrison, Rodrigo and Brenden Aaronson will play just ahead of them as part of Marsch’s attack. Rodrigo managed to find the back of the net versus Wolves last weekend which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game.

Mateusz Klich, Crysencio Summerville and Sam Greenwood will be available for selection on the bench as they await their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if required.

Attack

Patrick Bamford will once again lead the charge for the Whites up top. The English forward needs a goal to boost his confidence, so this weekend’s clash away at Southampton could be another opportunity for him to return to form in the Premier League.

Joe Gelhardt will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Yorkshire giants are in need of a goal by then.
