Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Elland Road to take on Leeds United in the Premier League this evening as Marcelo Bielsa’s men aim to mantain their impressive start to the term.
Newly-promoted United came incredibly close to upsetting the champions of England, Liverpool, on opening day, before earning back-to-back victories over Fulham and Sheffield United. They then drew against Manchester City ahead of the international break.
Meanwhile, Wolves have seen mixed fortunes so far this term. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have recorded two wins and two losses from their opening top-flight fixtures, not quite kicking on from last season’s impressive campaign.
A victory over Leeds could be exactly what they need to do just that, however.
Leeds captain Liam Cooper is a doubt after sustaining a groin injury while on international duty with Scotland. Diego Llorente’s own groin problem will keep him out, while Adam Forshaw, Gaetano Berardi and Kiko Casilla will all miss the fixture. Jack Harrison is available again after missing out against his parent club Manchester City ahead of the international break, and new arrival Raphinha is expected to start on the bench.
Wolves, meanwhile, are without Jonny Castro due to a knee problem, but Fernando Marcal should have recovered from a calf issue in time to feature.
Leed: Meslier; Ayling, Cooper, Koch, Dallas; Costa, Rodrigo, Phillips, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
Wolves: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Marcal; Traore, Jimenez, Podence
