Chris Sutton hits back as Micah Richards admits he'd rather watch Leeds United than Wolves

Micah Richards has insisted that fans would rather watch Leeds United than Wolves in the Premier League this season.

The Whites are currently struggling, whereas Wolves are pushing for European football once again at the top of the table – something that led to Chris Sutton strongly disagreeing.

Richards went as far as to suggest that even some Wolves fans would be more entertained watching Leeds than their own side at times.

Speaking live on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club, Richards kickstarted the debate that raised eyebrows.

“They don’t entertain as much as Leeds,” he said. “You know what Leeds are. I’m saying to you if you asked a fan on the street ‘who would you rather watch? Leeds or Wolves’ – even the Wolves fans would say watch Leeds because it’s going to be entertainment.”

Sutton hit back immediately and seemed to instantly disagree given the different levels of success this season.

“Who said Leeds are going for the top four? That’s not going to happen.”

Entertainers.

If you ask Leeds fans which position they would rather be in, they would trade with Wolves in a heartbeat this season.

That is where this debate hinges, you can entertain all you want, but fans want consistency and results, something we haven’t had all season.

The defeat at Everton appeared to be a slight turn in the fanbase, with many starting to question Marcelo Bielsa.

Results are needed quickly or we could once again find ourselves fighting the bottom three, and with Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs coming up – it’s not looking good.

Sutton instantly brought up the Champions League fight that Wolves may find themselves in, and that is something that Leeds must aspire to.

First of all, we have to seal our place in the Premier League, no matter how we do it, that is the most important stage this season.
