The Premier League returns to the fold with another set of high-octane fixtures this weekend as Leeds United lock horns with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Friday. Both teams have been fairly inconsistent this season and will need to step up to the plate in this fixture.
Leeds United are in 11th place in the Premier League standings at the moment and have had an eventful season under Marcelo Bielsa so far. The Peacocks suffered a 4-2 defeat against Arsenal in their previous game and will want to put in a more robust effort this weekend.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, are two points behind Leeds United in the league table but have improved in recent weeks. Wolves came from behind to defeat Southampton over the weekend and will be confident ahead of this match.
