Match Preview

  • Leeds United are proving their Premier League (PL) credentials with last round’s draw against Manchester City, which followed on from a 4-3 defeat at Liverpool and two narrow wins. Playing with confidence under Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds have averaged 54.50% possession from their first four PL matches.
  • The ‘Peacocks’ have followed up a run of eight home league matches unbeaten from last season (W7, D1) by winning their first PL home game after a 16-year hiatus and then grabbing that comeback draw against City. Their average conceded goals tally across those ten matches is just 0.5 per match, whilst four of Leeds’ last six league matches played anywhere have now seen over 3.5 goals.
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers, meanwhile, got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win against Fulham in the last round. In typical fashion, they scored their winner in the second half, and of Wolves’ last 16 PL goals, 12 have come in the second half. This season, they’ve recorded a W1, D2, L1 string of second-half results, although they possessed the third-best PL second-half record last season (W18, D17, L3).
  • The 4-0 hammering Wolves suffered in their last away game, was their worst PL defeat since Manchester United thumped them 5-0 back in 2012. In fact whilst they didn’t concede 3+ goals in any of the last 33 league rounds last season, they’ve done so in two of four PL rounds already this campaign. Four of their last five PL defeats have now come via a 2+ goal margin.
  • Players to watch: Rodrigo Moreno (LEE) scored his second PL career goal in the last round, nine years and 272 days since scoring his first PL strike – the second longest gap ever. Meanwhile, Raúl Jiménez (WOL) has netted the opener in five of the last six PL games he’s scored in.
  • Hot stat: Wolves have failed to score before HT in 20 of their last 26 league matches.
