Leeds United predicted lineup vs Southampton, Preview, PL Gameweek 31

Leeds United have been hit and miss this season with the latter happening more than the former. Poor defensive performances and a lacklustre attack sees them place 16th in the table. They have only accumulated 29 points from their first 30 games this season. This is a very important game for them as a loss would see them just 7 points away from the relegation zone having played 4 more games than Everton who sit 17th (4 points behind Leeds United).

Southampton have had a mediocre season so far. They sit 11th on the table with 35 points from 29 games. They are in pretty dire form at the moment having lost their last 3 PL games. They will see the international break as a blessing in disguise and will look to regroup and fight back. A win would see them go as high as 9th, depending on other results. Here is our Leeds United predicted lineup vs Southampton.

Leeds United predicted lineup vs Southampton – Prediction

Leeds United will be hoping that their strong home form and Southampton’s poor recent form will mean that they will win. Both defenses leak goals and so I feel that it might be a high scoring game. I predict a 3-2 for Leeds United.
