Leeds United vs Southampton: Match preview
Leeds suffered back-to-back defeats on Friday as they were beaten by Wolves.
An own goal scored by Illan Meslier saw them drop all three points at Molineux.
The week before, Bielsa’s side were also well beaten by Arsenal as the Gunners won 4-2.
The west Yorkshire club are now down in 12th with 32 points.
Although, should they bounce back with a win on Tuesday, they could move into the top half climbing above both Wolves and Arsenal.
Southampton end run of six defeats
Southampton finally ended a run of six consecutive defeats as they held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
Minamino’s first-half strike was cancelled out by Mason Mount’s second-half spot-kick as the two teams tied at St Mary’s.
Since their win over Liverpool last month, the Saints had been on a shocking run which has seen them slip into 13th.
However, they produced an impressive performance on Saturday to stop Thomas Tuchel’s new-look Blues side.
They will now be looking to build on the spirited showing on the weekend as they have the chance to climb into 11th with a win.
