Leeds are seeking a third Premier League win on the spin having followed up a thrilling 2-1 victory at home to Norwich City with a stunning 3-2 triumph at Wolves, the Whites bagging all three points at Molineux despite seeing four players forced off injured.

The back-to-back wins have Marsch's side sat fifth-bottom and on 29 points ahead of today's return to action, United seven points clear of the drop zone but with all of the sides below them having games in hand.

Southampton sit 11th, five places and six points above Leeds who have also played one game more but Ralph Hasenhuttl's side have lost their last three games and last four in league and cup.

How we expect Leeds to line up

Good afternoon, it’s good to be back

Will he start? The matchday programme

Liam Cooper on his return and also Patrick Bamford:

Not a good start for Saints

A handful of their players took to the Elland Road turf to check out the pitch but they then got caught out by the sprinklers which came on to a few cheers from those already braving the cold here.

The first players out for Leeds.

They’ve had enough

Out for ten seconds or so then back in

Are next out, Cresswell and Struijk too.

Greenwood and Forshaw next

Some young fans shouting for their heroes

Out on his own and then runs over to the young fans to pose for photos. Brilliant.
