Commentary

That brings an end to our coverage of the Premier League clash between Southampton and Leeds at St. Mary’s Stadium. Thank you very much for joining us. Goodbye! 
Southampton host West Ham on the final day of the season as they look to bounce back. Leeds, meanwhile, end their first campaign back in the Premier League with a home clash against West Brom.  
After an action-packed match, Leeds take all three points from their visit to St. Mary's and climb to eighth in the table. The Saints had the better of the play in the first half, with Casilla twice being called into action to deny Adams. Southampton went close to breaking the deadlock a few minutes into the second half, but Ward-Prowse's free-kick cannoned off the bar. With 23 minutes left to play, a deft finish from Bamford opened the scoring, before Roberts put the game beyond Hasenhuttl’s side in the closing stages. 
90' + 7' FULL TIME: SOUTHAMPTON 0-2 LEEDS 
90' + 7' SHOULD BE THREE! Another quick break sees Bamford advance down the left, and he picks out Raphinha in the penalty area with a low cross. The Brazilian looks to tuck his shot inside the near post, but McCarthy gets down quickly to deny the winger. 
T. Roberts
Goal
90' + 5' GOOOAAAALLL! Leeds have breathing space! The visitors launch an incisive counter through Roberts, and the substitute tees up Bamford. The opening goalscorer sees his left-footed shot from the centre of box palmed away by McCarthy, before Roberts collects the rebound and calmly slots it into the bottom-right corner. 2-0. 
90' + 4' WAS THAT THE CHANCE!? Cooper comes out to meet Walker-Peters and brings down the full-back midway inside the visitors’ half. Ward-Prowse floats the free-kick into the box, and it is nodded across goal, but Stephens cannot turn it beyond Casilla from a few yards out.  
90' + 2' WHAT A STRIKE! Diallo links up with Ings on the edge of the box, and the latter takes one touch, spins onto his left foot, and unleashes a fierce shot that fizzes wide of the far post.
90' There will be six minutes of added time at the end of the second half.  
89' JUST WIDE! Armstrong finds Redmond down the right-hand side of the box, and the substitute cuts onto his left foot and pulls his shot wide of the near post. 
88' Bamford’s haul of 16 Premier League goals is the most by a player for a promoted side in a top-flight campaign since Charlie Austin's 18 for Queens Park Rangers in 2014-15. 
86' The away side have upped the intensity in the last 10 minutes and are pressing the Saints high up the field at every opportunity.  
84' Roberts attempts to set Bamford away in behind the hosts’ defence, but the referee’s assistant has their flag up for offside against the English striker. Raphinha had the ball in the net following the attacker's cross, but it will not stand. 
82' The visitors are in no rush to take any set-pieces now as Bielsa’s men look to run down the clock. The St. Mary’s faithful are not responding well to the time wasting.  
80' The home supporters in attendance are growing increasingly frustrated as the Saints continue to struggle to break down Leeds’ defensive unit. Struijk pulls back Djenepo, and the hosts win a free-kick on the halfway line. 
T. Roberts
Rodrigo
78' Leeds’ final change sees Rodrigo make way for Roberts. 
I. Diallo
T. Walcott
78' Hasenhuttl turns to his bench in his effort to inspire a response. Diallo enters the fray in place of Diallo. 
77' Bamford is the first player to score 10 Premier League goals away from home in a single season for a newly-promoted club since Andy Johnson for Crystal Palace in 2004-05
75' CLOSE! The Peacocks advance down the right-hand side with Raphinha, who cuts inside and onto his left foot. After creating a yard of space, the Brazilian lashes a fierce shot wide of the far post.  
Rodrigo
Assist
73' Rodrigo dropped into a pocket in space, turned onto his left foot, and spotted the off-the-shoulder run of Bamford. The English striker timed his run to perfection and made no mistake with the finish despite pressure from the onrushing McCarthy. 
P. Bamford
Goal
73' GOOOOAAAALLLL! Leeds take the lead! Rodrigo lifts a well-weighted throughball in behind the Saints defence, which Bamford takes down before cleverly slotting through McCarthy’s legs from an acute angle. After checking with VAR for offside, the goal is given. 1-0. 
72' Ayling uses his body to get across Armstrong, and the defender wins a free-kick inside his own box. 
N. Redmond
N. Tella
70' With 20 minutes of normal time left to play, Hasenhuttl brings on Redmond for Tella. 
68' ALMOST THE OPENER! Raphinha skips beyond Salisu down the right-hand side of the box, and the Brazilian’s low cross is nodded away by Stephens, but only as far as Alioski. The midfielder takes the ball down off his chest before seeing McCarthy scramble back into position to claim his close-range strike. 
66' OPPORTUNITY! Ings receives the ball on the edge of the area, cuts inside of his marker, and fires a right-footed shot over the bar.  
P. Struijk
Yellow Card
65' Armstrong tries to launch a quick break and is cynically pushed to the floor just outside the Saints’ box by Struijk. The substitute picks up a yellow card and he can have no complaints with that decision. 
64' GOOD STRIKE! Walcott drives down the right flank and Ings collects the winger’s cross, knocking it back for Stephens. The defender lays it off to his right for Ward-Prowse, who sees his first-time shot from the edge of the penalty area turned away by Ayling. 
62' Bamford is now back to his feet and able to continue. It remains 0-0 with just under 30 minutes of normal time left to play. 
61' Bamford is now sat up as Leeds’ medical team carry out the necessary checks.  
59' There is going to be a brief stoppage in play as Bamford goes down after colliding with Salisu’s shoulder in looking to latch onto a cross from the left. He looks to be in real discomfort.  
58' COUNTER! The Peacocks quickly send the ball forward, and Bamford finds himself one-on-one with McCarthy. The English forward knocks it past the goalkeeper and stays on his feet after being caught, and Vestergaard gets back to steer it behind for a corner. Bamford is furious that he has not been given a penalty.  
57' The resulting free-kick is curled into the wall and Leeds clear their lines. 
S. Dallas
Yellow Card
56' A long, sweeping pass down the left-hand side finds Djenepo. The winger shapes to take on Dallas, and the Northern Irishman brings him down right on the edge of the box. The Leeds midfielder goes into the book and Ward-Prowse is standing over the free-kick. 
54' Walcott finds a yard of space down the right flank, but his deep cross evades everyone in the middle. 
52' Stephens is making his 100th Premier League start for the Saints in this match.
50' GREAT OPPORTUNITY! The Peacocks have come out quickly and with real intent in the second half. Bamford gets to the byline and sees his shot from an acute angle saved by McCarthy, and Harrison’s follow-up effort is well blocked in the centre of the box.  
49' NOT FAR AWAY! Some patient build-up play from Leeds results in Rodrigo knocking the ball down for Dallas on the edge of the penalty area, who sees his well-struck half-volley tipped behind for a corner by McCarthy. That was some shot.  
47' OFF THE BAR! Southampton win a free-kick in an advanced position a few yards outside of the Leeds penalty area following a foul from Bamford on Ward-Prowse, and the English midfielder bends the set-piece against the bar.  
46' We are back underway! Banks, the referee, blows his whistle and Southampton get the second half kicked off. 
P. Struijk
K. Phillips
46' It is a double change for the Peacocks, with Struijk coming on in place of Phillips. 
G. Berardi
Diego Llorente
46' Leeds make a substitution of their own ahead of the second half. Llorente makes way for Berardi.  
D. Ings
C. Adams
46' The Saints make one change at the break. Ings replaces Adams.  
Hasenhuttl will be delighted with his team’s first-half performance, and will look for more of the same after the restart. Adams and Tella have both been bright thus far, with their movement causing Leeds problems, although their final pass has been lacking. Bielsa, on the other hand, will hope to see more of an offensive threat from his side in the second half. Bamford was too isolated in the first half, while Raphinha saw very little of the play down the right. 
Following a closely-fought first half, there’s nothing to separate Southampton and Leeds at the break. The Saints started brightly and almost took the lead after two minutes, but Casilla was alert to keep out Adams’ close-range header. Dallas spurned the visitors’ best chance, firing wide from the centre of the box after 24 minutes, before Leeds’ Spanish goalkeeper denied Adams for a second time 12 minutes later to keep the score level. 
45' + 2' HALF TIME: SOUTHAMPTON 0-0 LEEDS
45' + 2' PENALTY? Salisu backtracks to latch onto a lofted pass down the right-hand side of the Saints penalty area, and Ayling goes down under pressure appealing for a penalty. The referee was well placed to wave away the protests. 
45' There will be one minute of added time at the end of the first half.
43' Vestergaard skips inside of Harrison and runs towards the edge of the Leeds penalty area. He picks his head up and attempts to play in Adams, but his pass is intercepted.  
41' Harrison looks to set Bamford away with a throughball in behind the Saints defence, but the pass is overhit and runs through for McCarthy to gather. 
39' Raphinha cuts inside of Salisu and lays the ball off to Rodrigo. The attacker turns onto his left foot and bends a strike from range wide to the left of the Southampton goal. 
37' OVER! From the resulting corner, Casilla fails to punch the ball clear and it falls to Tella, who instinctively scoops his shot over the bar. 
36' GOOD SAVE! Some clever build-up play down the right-hand side of the field results in Tella steering the ball inside for Adams. The Scotsman sweeps a first-time shot towards the bottom-right corner from the edge of the box, and Casilla is down quickly to palm it behind for a corner.
K. Phillips
Yellow Card
34' The game is beginning to get a little feisty now. Phillips picks up the first yellow card of the match for catching Tella with a late challenge midway inside the Leeds half. 
33' Walcott's first senior career goal came against Leeds 5,691 days ago.  
31' Adams tries to win the ball back in the visitors’ penalty area, although he leans into Cooper and Leeds win a free-kick. 
30' Vestergaard looks to build from the back, but pressure from Bamford forces the defender to go back to his goalkeeper, and McCarthy clears the ball down the field. 
28' Leeds win a corner to the right off Djenepo, and Phillips’ out-swinging cross is tamely nodded wide of the far post by Llorente in the middle of the penalty area. 
27' A long, searching ball looks to pick out Rodrigo’s run in behind the Saints defence, but Salisu watches the pass all the way before dealing with the threat. 
26' Armstrong catches Rodrigo and the visitors are awarded a free-kick deep inside their own half.
24' GOOD CHANCE! Marcelo Bielsa’s team are beginning to grow into the game now. The Peacocks advance down the left, and Harrison’s deep cross is nodded down by Raphinha for Dallas, and the Northern Irishman steers his left-footed shot from the centre of the box wide to the right of McCarthy’s goal. 
22' In starting against Leeds, McCarthy makes his 100th Premier League appearance for Southampton. He becomes just the third goalkeeper to hit that milestone after Paul Jones (193) and Fraser Forster (115). 
20' Vestergaard collects the ball on the halfway line and drives into the Leeds half. The defender neatly turns inside of his marker before teeing up Armstrong, who shoots over the bar from distance. 
19' Ayling’s ambitious left-footed strike from range is dragged well wide of the far post.  
17' Tella flicks the ball around the corner for Walcott, who drives into the Leeds box looking to latch onto the pass. The English winger beats Casilla for pace, before his cross from an acute angle is hooked to safety. 
17' Djenepo is now back to his feet and able to continue. 
16' There is going to be a brief stoppage in play as Djenepo is down and in need of treatment. The winger was caught by Harrison’s rash sliding challenge deep inside the Saints’ half. 
15' Following a corner from the left, Dallas’ delivery is nodded to the edge of the box, where Raphinha sees his first-time shot charged down by Djenepo.  
13' Salisu catches Dallas with a high boot and Leeds win a free-kick a few yards inside the hosts’ half. 
12' Adams sends the ball down the right side of the box, and Walker-Peter's low cross is turned behind for a corner by Cooper.  The resulting set-piece comes to nothing.
10' Llorente comes across Adams and is adjudged to have fouled the Scottish international in an advanced position down the left wing. Ward-Prowse’s in-swinging delivery is nodded out by Ayling before Armstrong fires the ball well over the bar from the edge of the box.  
8' Hasenhuttl's side have started very brightly, with Leeds unable to get their foot on the ball and get into their rhythm.  
6' Djenepo tries to catch Casilla off his line from range, but his audacious effort sails wide to the right of the Spaniard’s goal. 
5' OFFSIDE! Leeds lose possession midway inside their own half and Adams drives at the heart of the defence, before laying it off his left for Tella. The ball ricochets off Ayling and back into Tella, forcing Casilla to make a smart stop at his near post. The flag, however, went up for offside against the striker. 
3' The Saints break down the left-hand side before the ball is pulled back to Armstrong on the edge of the box. The midfielder gets it out of his feet before seeing his deflected effort loop into Casilla’s arms. 
2' GREAT SAVE! Harrison catches Walker-Peters and Southampton win a free-kick in an advanced position down the right flank. Ward-Prowse floats the resulting set-piece into the box, and the visitors fail to clear their lines. Armstrong drives to the byline, lifts a cross into the far post, and Casilla is alert to tip Adams’ close-range header behind for a corner. 
1' Kick-off! The referee, Peter Bankes, blows his whistle and Leeds get the game underway.
The teams are out, and kick-off will soon be upon us here at St. Mary’s Stadium. 
Southampton have won five of their last six home league games against Leeds, including each of the last three.
The home side come into this match 14th in the table and ten points behind the visitors. The Saints are, however, just two points behind 12th-place Wolves, and Hasenhuttl will be hoping for a strong end to the campaign. Southampton have won four of their last six home matches, scoring twelve goals in that time. Leeds, on the other hand, come into this game in 10th place. The Peacocks are unlikely to finish in a Conference League play-off spot, although an eight-place finish is still within reach, with Everton only three points ahead.
Ralph Hasenhuttl makes three changes from the Southampton line-up that beat Fulham last time out. In midfield, Walcott and Djenepo come in to start in place Minamino and Redmond. Ings also drops the bench, Tella, who scored his first senior goal against the Cottagers, replaces him in the starting side. The visitors also make three alterations for this clash. Casilla, Cooper and Rodrigo replace Meslier, Struijk and Mateusz Klich.
LEEDS SUBS: Illan Meslier, Pascal Struijk, Leif Davis, Gaetano Berardi, Jack Jenkins, Jamie Shackleton, Pablo Hernandez, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Tyler Roberts.
SOUTHAMPTON SUBS: Fraser Forster, Jan Bednarek, Ibrahima Diallo, Will Ferry, Takumi Minamino, Nathan Redmond, Daniel N'Lundulu, Michael Obafemi, Danny Ings.   
LEEDS (3-5-1-1): Kiko Casilla; Luke Ayling, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper; Raphinha, Stuart Dallas, Kalvin Phillips, Ezgjan Alioski, Jack Harrison; Rodrigo Moreno; Patrick Bamford. 
SOUTHAMPTON (4-4-2): Alex McCarthy; Kyle Walker-Peters, Jack Stephens, Jannik Vestergaard, Mohammed Salisu; Theo Walcott, James Ward-Prowse, Stuart Armstrong, Moussa Djenepo; Che Adams, Nathan Tella. 
Southampton come into this match looking for their third consecutive Premier League win. The Saints beat Fulham 3-1 last time out. Leeds are hoping to achieve the same feat, and they triumphed 4-0 over Burnley in their previous top-flight game.
