The Premier League returns to the fold with another round of matches this weekend as Leeds United lock horns with Southampton in an intriguing clash at St. Mary's Stadium on Saturday.


Southampton vs Leeds United Preview

Leeds United are currently in seventh place in the Premier League standings and have managed to step up to the plate this season. The away side edged Wolverhampton Wanderers to a 2-1 victory last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Southampton, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of the league table at the moment and have made a poor start to their Premier League campaign. The Saints suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.
