Leeds welcome Wolves to Elland Road in the Premier League tonight as Marcelo Bielsa’s team aim to mantain their strong start to the season.
Newly-promoted United came agonisingly close to beating the champions of England, Liverpool, on opening day, before notching back-to-back victories over Fulham and Sheffield United. They then drew against Manchester City ahead of the international break.
Meanwhile, Wolves have experienced mixed fortunes so far this term. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have managed two wins and two losses from their opening top-flight games, not quite kicking on from last season’s impressive campaign.
A win over Leeds could be exactly what they need to do just that, however.
Here’s all you need to know about this evening’s game:
When is it?
The match kicks off at 8pm BST tonight at Elland Road.

What is the team news?
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
This should be an entertaining game, full of attacking football and – likely – goals. Expect a back-and-forth encounter, with little to separate the sides. Leeds 2-2 Wolves.
