Lewis Jones has backed Wolves to beat Leeds United this evening on Friday Night Football in the Premier League.

The Sky Sports pundit has predicted that the Whites will lose 2-1 at Molineux, making it consecutive defeats on the road.

Marcelo Bielsa will want his side to bounce back from the disappointing defeat at Arsenal, in what should be another mid-table battle with Wolves.

Jones has claimed that Nuno Espirito is desperate to win at any cost, and it could bring the same outcome as the reverse fixture at Elland Road.

“I think if they go toe to toe with Leeds, their superior quality will shine through,” he wrote on his Sky Sports column.

“But Nuno is a result-at-all-costs kind of guy and will surely look to stifle Marcelo Bielsa’s attack then edge ahead when possible like they did in the reverse fixture at Elland Road that ended 1-0 in their favour.

“It’s a shame – just unleash them, Nuno.”

We are expecting a similar pattern of play as the reverse fixture.

Wolves will be defensively disciplined, and that may see their attacking style go down to counter-attacking, with Leeds dominating the ball once again.

The Whites need to take their chances better this time around and create more in the final third to translate that dominance into a lead.

If Bielsa’s men grab that lead and start better today, it will be hard for Wolves to be unleashed by Nuno, who will be wondering what happened.
