After avoiding relegation on the final day of last season, Leeds will be hoping for a much better campaign in 2022/23, starting with a strong performance against a Wolves side they remained unbeaten against last term.
Jesse Marsch seems to have recruited well so far ahead of what will be his first full season in charge at Elland Road, with Luis Sinisterra, Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca all coming through the door after the huge losses of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha to Man City and Barcelona respectively.
Bruno Lage will now be looking for a little more luck to the start of this season, after seeing his side have 57 shots but fail to score in his opening three Premier League games in charge last term. Wolves did pick up after that however, finishing an impressive 7th even after failing to win any of their last seven games.
Wolves have been pretty quiet in the transfer market compared to Saturday’s opponents, with centre-back Nathan Collins the only new arrival from relegated Burnley and with the recent injury to goalscorer Raul Jimenez, they may again struggle to hit the back of the net, for now at least.

Leeds vs Wolves match stats
After an injury plagued season, the Leeds faithful will be delighted that Patrick Bamford is fit and raring to go ahead of the new season. The England forward scored 17 goals and provided seven assists in his 38 Premier League games in 2020/21 and will be hoping to reach those heights again under new manager Jesse Marsch.
Despite being linked with a move away in nearly every transfer window, Ruben Neves is set to start another campaign with Wolves and will be looking to impress in their midfield yet again. The Portuguese international has had more shots than any other Wolves player across the last two seasons (109), with his long range striking ability one of the best in the division, in fact 84% of his shots across the last two seasons have come from outside the box.
