Leeds vs Wolves Prediction & Betting tips
Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers close the fifth round of the Premier League on Monday-evening with a duel on Elland Road. The last time the Wolves visited Leeds they managed to score a 0-3 victory, but now the teams seem more evenly matched.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United has been active at the highest English level for over a month. So far, Leeds United has really proved to be a reinforcement for the Premier League, as The Whites play attractive football and combine it with achieving results. For Leeds United, the counter is at seven points after four games and they will not be dissatisfied with that. Leeds lost 4-3 to Liverpool in the opening weekend and Bielsa’s team remained unbeaten in the other three matches.
In recent years, Leeds United had a difficult time in their mutual duels with Wolverhampton, because the last three meetings with the Wolves were lost for Leeds. In those encounters, however, Bielsa was not yet a trainer of The Whites and with El Loco at the helm, Leeds United need not fear anyone. That Leeds United really is a club with an idea and Bielsa is a good manager, is also evident from the fact that, for example, a Raphinha has chosen to sacrifice Champions League football with Rennes for Premier League football with Leeds United. . Raphinha can probably count on a starting place against the Wolves, while Pablo Hernández can also make his return on Monday evening. The Spanish midfielder is already 35 years old, but remains an important link for this Leeds United.
Wolverhampton has collected one point less than Leeds United. The Portuguese-tinted team of Nuno Espírito Santo are six points after four games. The Wolves have lost in the Premier League to Manchester City (1-3) and West Ham United (4-0) in recent weeks, while beating Sheffield United (0-2) and Fulham (1-0). Nuno will not be completely dissatisfied with the first games of his team, but the 4-0 defeat in London at West Ham United was hard for the Wolves.
It will be interesting to see what answer Wolverhampton will have on Monday night to Leeds United’s style of play. As is known, Bielsa is keen to play pressing football with Leeds, while Wolverhampton is keen to fall back and need few chances to score a goal. In recent seasons, the Wolves have played well against clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool – teams that want to play football just like Leeds – and that should give Wolverhampton confidence in the run-up to the game with Leeds. At the Wolves, they have an almost fit selection prior to Monday night’s game. The Spaniard Jonny is the only player missing.
