84’

Leeds looking for the equaliser

Leeds are trying to push forward as we're into the last 10 minutes here at St Mary's but they can't seem to monopolise on any of the opportunities. Can Saints hold on for all three points?

Saints continue to press

45’

Back underway 😇

Saints restart the action at St Mary's as they hope to build on their impressive first half performance to ensure their first league victory of the season. 

HALF TIME: Saints 0-0 Leeds

An energetic first-half from Saints who had chance after chance in front of goal but couldn't quite get themselves on the scoresheet. There's a notable difference in Leeds today who are without a number of their key players but will Saints be able to monopolise on this and maintain the momentum in the second? Stay tuned ...

45’

Better from Leeds

Leeds have began to pick up the pace a little here at St Mary's, while Saints are still dominating the majority of play Roberts does exceptionally well to send his strike towards McCarthy but the ball ends up going wide. 

44’

Saints looking strong

A flowing attack, kick-started by captain Romeu sees Saints charge forwards through Tino Livramento. The attack loses pace as Djenepo recovers the ball, his curling shot into the box meets the head of Elyounoussi but he can't bring it under control to send it goalwards. 

40’

Leeds hit the counter

A promising move from Leeds who produce a good bit of play just outside the area but James' shot goes straight into the gloves of McCarthy. 

37’

Chance after chance 🙄

Saints are desperately searching for the opener here. This time Perraud gets the ball into the area for Saints but the Leeds defence is there to clear as they survive another attack.

Saints continue to search for an opening 

Individual brilliance from Moi Elyounoussi who dances inside the penalty area but his strike is saved comfortably by Meslier.

Exceptional play from Saints

A beautiful bit of work from Elyounoussi in the centre of the pitch as he plays the ball into Redmond who charges towards the penalty area, some slick footwork sees him overcome the Leeds defence before Oriol Romeu's shot goalwards thumps off of the Leeds defence. 

25’

Slick from Salisu

Salisu skips through the Leeds defence as Saints continue to push forward at St Mary's, Leeds captain Liam Cooper eventually brings him down as Saints are awarded the free-kick. 

23’

All Saints 

Beautiful play from Livramento and Broja but Stuart Dallas is there to clear for Leeds. Redmond delivers the corner, this time a low bouncing shot into the box - it deflects back to Moussa Djenepo whose shot towards goal goes well over the crossbar. 

21’

SO CLOSE 😱

Saints were just inches away from taking the lead as another Remond corner is whipped into the box, initially meeting the head of Broja. Elyounoussi tries to get the final touch to see the ball into the back of the net but he can't quite make contact and the ball goes behind for a goal kick. 

Saints in control 💪

Another close effort from Saints as Redmond tries his luck from range but his powerful shot is deflected behind by Meslier.

Saints are almost caught out as Leeds try and catch a break down the wing but Mohammed Salisu stands strong to deny Leeds the attack. 

7’

Another Saints set-piece

Free-kick for Saints

Saints pick up a free-kick in the centre of the pitch as Pascal Struijk brings down Romeu in the centre of midfield.
