On first viewing, Wolves may look pretty comfortable in the Premier League, sitting 13th with 11 games left to play, but stare at the table for just a second longer and you’ll see they are still very much in the relegation battle. One of the closest we’ve had in years. Wolves are one of nine teams covered by just five points in the bottom have of the table, and are in just as much danger of going down as any of the other sides.
Julen Lopetegui’s men are still struggling for consistency in the Premier League with just two wins from their past six games, alongside three defeats. However, it is worth nothing that Wolves have had a tough run of fixtures, facing Fulham, Liverpool, Tottenham and Newcastle in their past four matches – beating Antonio Conte’s side.
Moving down the table and into the relegation zone, we find Leeds, who have had a mixed start to life under Javi Gracia. The former Watford boss replaced Jesse Marsch last month and won his first game, a massive 1-0 win over fellow relegation battlers Southampton. However, they were then beaten 1-0 by Chelsea to keep them only outside the bottom three of goal difference.
Last time out it was a positive result, a 2-2 draw against Brighton, but games elsewhere went against them and Leeds have no dropped into the relegation zone, now 19th. However, as mentioned, things are extremely tight and Leeds could move as high as 14th with victory this weekend.

Wolves vs Leeds match stats
One of the worst Premier League away sides this season travels to face the team who struggle in front of goal, which can only mean fans are in for a rough afternoon. Hosts Wolves have a shot conversion rate of just 6.8% on the Premier League this season and have scored 20 goals, with no team netting fewer. At the same time, no side has fewer away wins (one) or away points (six) than Leeds in the Premier League this season, and the Whites are winless in their last seven on the road.
There was a time when Leeds were known as Dirty Leeds, for their rough tackling during the Don Revie era, which was a key proponent of the 1970 FA Cup final and replay. Of course, that moniker is long gone, and Leeds aren’t “dirty” anymore – but they aren’t shy of a card. The Yorkshire club have averaged 2.04 yellow cards per game in the Premier League this season, with only five teams managing more. Wolves aren’t much cleaner, however, with an average of 1.96 per game.
