Leeds have lost their last two Premier League matches after going down 1-0 away to Wolves over the weekend. 

Leeds had 58% possession, attempted 18 shots and Robin Klich hit the crossbar. But goalkeeper Illan Meslier’s unfortunate own goal was the difference between the sides. 

Leeds have won three three of their last five at Elland Road and scored nine goals in the process. 

Goals from Jack Harrison and Patrick Bamford earned a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in their last home match. They subsequently lost 4-2 at Arsenal and then away at Wolves.

Leeds will be without key midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who remains out with a calf injury. 

Defenders Robin Koch and Gaetano Berardi are also ruled out along with forwards Ian Poveda and Rodrigo.

Midfielder Adam Forshaw also remains out long-term.

Bielsa introduced Tyler Roberts in a changed 4-4-1-1 formation in the 1-0 loss to Wolves. But he could revert to his preferred 4-1-4-1 against Southampton with Pascal Struijk filling in the holding midfield role.
