Leeds United host Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

After escaping relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, Leeds United will be keen to avoid similar problems this term. A fast start is likely to set the tone for the campaign while their form at Elland Road is expected to be a major factor in the course of the season.

Leeds United appear to be heading into a transitional season with manager Jesse Marsch set for his first full season in charge. There have been several changes to the playing personnel with key players Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips departing in the summer.

Despite all the departures, there is still plenty of excitement around Leeds United with the arrivals of Brendan Aaronson, Tyler Adams and Luis Sinisterra. Also feeding the swirl of positivity at the club is a solid preseason campaign where they claimed three wins and a draw from five friendly matches.

Wolverhampton Wanderers had a mixed campaign last season, eventually managing a 10th placed finish, six points off the European places.
It was a hectic preseason for Wolverhampton Wanderers, although they still struggled with inconsistency. They won their first three friendly matches but travel to Elland Road with just one win from their last five matches.

It remains to be seen what to expect from Wolves this season as they have not particularly strengthened in the transfer market. Their biggest piece of business appears to be holding on to midfield star Reuben Neves and striker Raul Jimenez, who incidentally is set to miss Saturday’s opener through injury.

How the bookies view it

Leeds United are considered favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 7/5 by Sport Nation. A victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers is valued at 23/10 by SBK while a draw is set at odds of 9/4 with BetVictor.

Recent head to head

Leeds United were unbeaten against Wolverhampton Wanderers last season, playing out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road before claiming a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture at Molineux.

Players to watch

Patrick Bamford endured an injury riddled campaign last season and will be hoping to stay fit this term. The striker impressed in preseason, netting a brace in the final fixture against Cagliari and could be backed to get on the score sheet on Saturday at 12/5 with 10bet.

In the absence of Raul Jimenez, Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence to provide the spark in attack. Paddy Power has Neto at 4/1 to score anytime while Podence is priced at 19/5 by Unibet in the same market.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 4.5 goals in the last meeting between both teams and a similar outcome is priced at 7/1 with BetVictor. Over 3.5 goals is valued at 5/2 by bet365, over 2.5 goals is priced at 30/29 by 10bet while SBK is offering odds of 5/6 on both teams to score.

Leeds United will be keen to make a fast start and could be backed to score first on Saturday at 20/23 with BoyleSports.
