It would be fair to say there’s a significant contrast in styles between these two sides.
Leeds have scored 15 more goals than Wolves (having played a game less), but have also conceded 10 more.
Statistics can be misleading but these numbers are not. You only have to watch the games to see the difference.
We sit and wait for a moment, Leeds go all out to force the moment.
While they’re a more entertaining watch, there’s no right or wrong way to play football and the fact remains, we go above them with a victory.
I’m looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
Much like Wolves in our first season back in the Premier League, Leeds are the fashionable newcomers.
I do enjoy watching their games and think Bielsa is onto something with his all or nothing approach. With more additions, they could develop into a very good side.
Nuno himself said at the start of this season, you need to have more of the ball to be a top team and Leeds invariably dominate possession.
That was never truer than the game at Elland Road in which Wolves barely got a kick for an hour but gradually ceased control and by the end were decent value for the win.
By contrast, they found themselves 4-0 down at The Emirates on Sunday, but came storming back and very nearly made it a grandstand finish.
Kalvin Phillips missed that game and it’s 50/50 whether he plays on Friday. It would be a boost for Wolves if he didn’t make it.
Mateusz Klich and Rodrigo are two others who may not feature having picked up injuries.
I can’t see there being too many changes from the team that came back to beat Southampton.
It was a depressing first half at St. Mary’s and I was looking at the team and wondering how it was going to get any better.
The second half proved that we have the personnel to match these teams around us and just need to push up the pitch a bit and press the ball better.
Inverting the wingers also worked nicely so it will be interesting to see if Nuno does that from the start on Friday.
This should be a game where Neto and Traore are afforded space to get at the opposition, so we need them to produce the goods. The same applies to Willian Jose who hasn’t looked remotely like scoring in recent outings.
I’m not sure how close Boly and Podence are to a return but having them back without losing others would be great.
Last time out
As he so often does, Raul Jimenez made the difference at Elland Road, manufacturing a goal himself to give us all the points.
The last time we played at Molineux, Wolves emerged with a 4-1 victory to help propel us towards promotion, with two future Leeds players – Barry Douglas and Helder Costa – getting a couple of the goals.
Well done to Brompton Wolf, Dek, MARNHULL WOLVES, Marney, Woodend Wolf, Beford Lone Wolf, Joe.C, London wolves loyal, Lord Twix, GoWolves, Wolfstroker, Wokingham Welsh wolf, Jazzwolf54 and DeptfordWolf who all scored a maximum for correctly predicting the 2-1 score against Southampton.
Bedford Wolf and Mosman Wolf hit the front in the overall table at the end of Gameweek 24.
