MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head
Leeds United and Wolves meet in the first match of a league season for just the second time. In the only previous encounter in 2012-13 in the Championship, Leeds won 1-0, while Wolves went on to be relegated.
Wolves are unbeaten in four away league games against Leeds United, since a 2-1 defeat in April 2016 in the Championship.
Wolves have only failed to score in one of their last 13 league games against Leeds, a 1-0 home loss in October 2016.
Leeds earned four points from two 90th-minute goals in this Premier League fixture last season. They drew 1-1 at home and won 3-2 at Molineux.

Leeds United
Leeds United preserved their top-flight status last season courtesy of a 2-1 win at Brentford and Burnley's home loss to Newcastle United.
They have lost their opening Premier League match in both seasons since returning to the top flight, conceding nine goals in defeats to Manchester United and Liverpool. They were previously unbeaten in 14 opening day matches in the top flight.
Leeds haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 Premier League home games.
They let in 79 Premier League goals last season, equalling Wigan Athletic's competition record for goals conceded by a team that avoided relegation.
They have won just one of their last nine league fixtures at Elland Road (D2, L6).
The Whites have picked up 15 points in their 12 Premier League games under Jesse Marsch (W4, D3, L5).
The 101 yellow and three red cards awarded to Leeds last season set a new Premier League record for one campaign.

Wolves
Wolves' defeat to Leicester City last season was their first on the opening day in six Premier League campaigns (W3, D2).
They could lose successive opening day fixtures for the first time since 2005.
They are winless in seven Premier League games (D2, L5), the longest run of any team.
In last season's Premier League, only eight goals were scored in the first half of Wolves' 19 away fixtures (six for, two against).
Wolves have not kept a clean sheet in nine league matches.
Since Wolves returned to the top flight in 2018, Conor Coady has played in 151 of the club's 152 Premier League matches, only missing a 1-1 home draw against Southampton on 23 November 2020.

There you go then, I actually paid to watch the pre-season friendlies and was quite impressed with a few of the games, some of the new lads finding their feet pretty quickly, obviously it takes time to mould a team but it looks like we might pull a few surprises this season (especially if we can add another proven striker ) 2-0 for me, Paddy and Rodders and a nice clean sheet to start the season

So it's Over to You................................Predictions etc..........................

Come Onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeds!!!

So long as Marsch, unlike Bielsa, shows he has a Plan B for when things aren’t going our way, Imthibk we’ll be OK. The problem is, we’ve become conditioned to that not being the case. If teams find out how to counter Marsch’s system, then he needs to be able to change things around a little.

That was a proper performance today, grinding out a result from the opening game, and three point in the bag in the opening day….for the first time in 20 years.

Sweetness personified.

Meslier my MOM. Outstanding again and just seems to get better
----------------------------------------------------------------------
That doesn't surprise me - he was far and away our best player last season. Forgot Raphinha and Co - we'd have been down without Meslier.

That'll do for me 👍 a better start than this time last year, hopefully bodes well for rest of the season.

He’s a very talented young keeper. He did great today, and will only get better, but as for keeping us up last season? Really can’t agree with that… made some great saves but also several point costing blunders…and the keeper stats had him as one of the weakest in the division. But if today is the new norm, then that will be brilliant

Well done the boys! Exciting game with the best possible outcome. The new guys did well and will improve as they become accustomed to the pace of the Prem. Will enjoy Sunday now!

Thanks, Highland, and welcome back. The first time you don’t predict 2-1, look what happens.

I wasn't sure at the time, but having watched highlights how the heck didn't VAR give a pen for the punch on Rasmus?

If we hadn't got the 3 points I'd be fuming. As we did I just find it baffling.

I thought the same but really wanted Meslier to start the season with a clean sheet

Yep, really good to get the 3 points. 1 point a game to stay up and so we’ve already got 3 games’ worth. Would be good to avoid the heart-attack stress of last season this year.
