This is the first meeting between the two clubs this season, following the postponement of the first clash due to the visitors’ FA Cup tie with Shrewsbury Town, a competition that they are still in at the quarter-final stage.
Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side were part of the group looking to crash the European places for the first half of the season, flying high towards the top of the table. However, with just one win from their last 12 matches, his side have dropped down into mid-table.
Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea ended a six-game losing run in the league for the Saints. The goalscorer - which came during the first half - was Japanese international Takumi Minamino, a January loan-signing from Liverpool. The attacker has scored twice since his arrival.
Elsewhere in what is a talented and experience forward line for the South Coast outfit, Nathan Redmond, Danny Ings, Che Adams and Theo Walcott have all caused problems for the opposition in the campaign thus far, but the latter of that quartet is expected to miss the match through injury.
Former Leeds loanee goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is currently the number one choice between the posts. He’s behind a defensive pairing of Danish international Jannik Vestergaard and Polish international Jan Bednarek, a national teammate of Mateusz Klich.
It has been a staggering 15 matches since the Whites drew a match in the Premier League, which was a 0-0 tie with Arsenal at Elland Road. Last time out on home turf, Leeds put in an impressive display, winning 2-0 against Crystal Palace.
The Saints have not managed an away win in their last five - which was a late victory over fellow South Coast outfit, Brighton & Hove Albion courtesy of a Danny Ings penalty.
A win for Leeds would see them jump up two positions in the table, retaking a place in the top 10 of the division above both Wolves and Arsenal.
Southampton - with a victory - would move above Crystal Palace and the Whites into 12th place, and a convincing win would also take them above Wolves on goal-difference, according to leedsunited.

Theo Walcott and Kyle Walker-Peters are the most notable absentees for Southampton, whereas Stuart Armstrong is expected to return to the side after missing the draw with Chelsea last time out.

Leeds United vs Southampton Tips and Predictions
Having shipped more than once in five of their last seven, Southampton could have their work cut out against a Leeds attack that is the sixth-highest scoring in the division.
The Whites have scored twice or more in five of their most recent six in the Premier league and backing them to net over 1.5 goals again on Tuesday looks a strong option at with bet365.
