Here we take a look at the latest news on Southampton’s team this weekend…Jack Stephens remains absent, out of action since the win over QPR at the end of August.
The centre-back is not expected to return in time for the Leeds game, meaning the Jan Bednarek and Taylor Harwood-Bellis combination is likely to remain in place of him for the visit of the Whites.
Ross Stewart is also yet to make his debut for the club since he signed for Sunderland on transfer deadline day earlier this month.
The striker was a high-profile signing and arrived for a fee in the region of £10million.
Che Adams started up front in the defeat to Middlesbrough, with Adam Armstrong and Ryan Fraser joining him in the attack on both sides.
This will likely allow Adams to retain his place on the team, but Armstrong could return to a more central role if Martin decides to move on.
There has been some uncertainty over the availability of Carlos Alcaraz, with the Argentine being on the bench in recent weeks.
It has been claimed that the youngster is having personal issues off the pitch, which could mean he will be on the bench again for the away game against Leeds.
Otherwise, no new injury concerns emerged at Southampton last week.
Martin should have a relatively healthy squad to choose from, but he could opt for changes in the squad he lost to Boro.
The former Swansea City manager must find a solution to change the formation, otherwise his position will come under even more intense scrutiny.
