- Leeds Utd secured their survival on the final day last season and there will be a different look about them this coming season with previous Premier League stars such as Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips having each departed for pastures new.
- The Whites were dogged by injury problems last season and head coach Jesse Marsch is still far from being able to utilise a fully available squad with the likes of Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo and Adam Forshaw all injured.
- Wolves’ plans for the new season have already suffered a huge blow due to the injury sustained by star striker Raul Jimenez, which will rule him out for at least the first few weeks of the new season.
- With Jimenez absent, Bruno Lage will be relying on players such as Hwang Hee-chan, Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto and Morgan Gibbs-White in the attacking areas of the pitch, although Adama Traore won't feature having not recovered from a hamstring niggle.

It is very much a new-look Leeds Utd outfit who will take to the field at Elland Road and it remains to be seen how they will fare against a dangerous Wolves. Under Jesse Marsch, you would expect high-octane football from the Whites who will be backed as always by an extremely vocal home crowd. However, whilst a highly-offensive style of play appears on the cards for Leeds, this could lead to Wolves being afforded extra space inside the opposition half, which would certainly suit their attacking players who will look to break with pace when considering that Jimenez won’t be there to hold the ball up for them. Therefore, we may be in for an end-to-end contest and regardless of which club comes out on top, both teams to score should be backed.
TIP: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
