Leeds United welcome Southampton to Elland Road on Tuesday evening looking to bounce back from their recent blip in the Premier League.

The Whites have lost consecutive games away from home against both Arsenal and Wolves, although they improved dramatically at Molineux.

Marcelo Bielsa won’t be speaking to the media until Monday, but he should have some positive news with plenty of names coming back from injuries.

Illan Meslier once again suffered from awful luck against Wolves, but should keep his spot in-between the sticks after an asserted performance.

The back four will see the first major change, with Diego Llorente coming back in to replace Pascal Struijk alongside Liam Cooper.

Luke Ayling will keep his spot and right-back, with Stuart Dallas also returning to his familiar left-back role after yet another night in midfield.

Kalvin Phillips could return, and the Yorkshire Pirlo will be in any predicted best XI at Elland Road, even if he is performing at 50% of his peak level.

Rodrigo returned to training last week, and it was a sight that delighted all Leeds fans as we edge towards a full-strength side.

Mateusz Klich, Raphinha and Jack Harrison will all keep their spots in the side and complete the midfield for the potentially tricky tie against the Saints.

Patrick Bamford has been frustrated in recent weeks and will be determined to bounce back at Elland Road and make it consecutive goals at home.
