Southampton hope to bounce back from their 4-1 hammering at the hands of Tottenham last week when they host Leeds on Saturday. The Saints are bottom of the Premier League after sustaining the loss in north London but will be confident of a better result this time out.

Leeds, on the other hand, had a fine start to the new season by beating Wolves 2-1 at home last Saturday.

Southampton vs Leeds preview

Theo Walcott and Valentino Livramento are unavailable for the home side after missing last week's match as well.

Ralph Hasenhuttl expects a tough match against the visitors, but he believes his side are well prepared for their arrival.

“I think this is a very committed team with a similar style to what we play sometimes," the Saints boss said.

"I don’t want to say it is easy to prepare, but you know exactly what to expect."

Leeds have Luis Sinisterra, Adam Forshaw and Liam Cooper available for this match, but Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling are still out, Jesse Marsch said this week.

He added in a press conference: “Then Stuart Dallas, I saw on the pitch today, moving around a little bit. So that was an exciting moment for us.

“Dani van den Heuvel is still working on his neck but looking positive as well. So we've got more options this week, which is what we felt would be the case last week.”
