BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Leeds United will take all three points from the Premier League clash against Wolves on Monday night.
It’s a fascinating match, with Leeds looking to emulate the success of Wolves after getting promoted from the Championship.
Writing in his regular column on the BBC, Lawrenson said, “Wolves have been a bit up and down so far and this will be another tough test for them.
“Leeds were impressive again in their draw with Manchester City, and their attacking outlook is going to win them a lot of fans.”
Lawrenson added that Leeds would win 2-1 in the game at Elland Road.
Win v Wolves would be huge
A win for Leeds at Elland Road would be huge and would keep their momentum going after a brilliant start to the season.
Despite playing both Liverpool and Man City in the first two games, Leeds could be unbeaten and were unlucky to lose against the champions in the first game of the season.
That ended 4-3 to Liverpool thanks to a late penalty.
Leeds lost that match but won a lot of neutral fans with their attacking intent which they have taken into all of their Premier League games so far.
The 1-1 draw with Man City was perhaps their most impressive match of the season so far, with Bielsa taking the game to the Premier League giants and getting plaudits from Pep Guardiola.
They could easily have won that game.
By way of contrast, Wolves were beaten 3-1 by Man City before being thrashed 4-0 by West Ham.
They hit back with a 1-0 win against Fulham in their last game out but currently sit 13th in the league with Leeds in eighth.
