Team News

Middlesbrough
Southampton
  • Michael Carrick could make as many as three changes on Saturday with Isaiah Jones, Morgan Rogers and Sam Greenwood all starting.
  • Right-back Anfernee Dijksteel is the home side's only confirmed absentee for the visit of Southampton.
  • At least one defensive change is expected from the visitors with Jan Bednarek pushing to replace Shea Charles.
  • Carlos Alcaraz could also return in midfield, while winger Kamaldeen Sulemana is an option on the right.

Prediction

  • Middlesbrough bounced back well after falling behind against fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night with Darragh Lenihan's second-half goal earning a point for the Teessiders. However, an inferior goal difference means that Michael Carrick's side remain bottom after seven games with no wins to their name.
  • Southampton couldn't produce a response to Omari Hutchinson's first-half goal in midweek as the Saints slipped to a disappointing 1-0 home defeat. After three successive league defeats, Russell Martin is already coming in for plenty of criticism with the team struggling at both ends of the pitch.
