(sport tv###) Watch: Leeds - Southampton Live Stream 25 February 2023
Some pray that the Spaniard is the one. Others view him simply as the next one. What is clear is that he was the only one willing to accept what currently looks like the most unappealing managerial vacancy in the division. Leeds' performance during their 1-0 defeat to Everton last weekend has been decried by many fans as their worst of the season, which is some feat considering they're on the longest winless run in the league – one that stretches back to early November. Southampton, meanwhile, are on a rare high after completing the double over Chelsea a week ago. It was the Saints' fifth victory of the season, and it's hard not to read into the fact that four of those have come away from their home ground, which has been a toxic environment for much of the campaign.
The atmosphere at Elland Road, however, has been on a different level entirely, and interim Saints boss Ruben Selles has already shown himself to be a dab hand at lighting a fire under his players' backsides and working the crowd to a frenzy. Get them going nice and early again here, and things could quickly turn ugly for Leeds. Leeds squandered a two-goal lead in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
