Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Leeds United and Wolverhampton face each other at Elland Road in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Marcelo Bielsa welcomes key player Raphinha back to the starting XI, and we are positive that the Brazil international will pose a big threat to the opposition defenders. Even though the Whites were totally outplayed by Southampton in their last league match, they are surely capable of matching Wolverhampton at home ground.
All Koch, Ayling, and Bamford remain in the recovery room. The Wolves, on the other hand, came from two goals behind to beat Aston Villa on the road on Matchday 9. Raul Jimenez returns to the starting line-up, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Neto, Mosquera, and Jonny are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Kalvin Phillips):
Kalvin Phillips started his youth career at Wortley Juniors, but he has been playing for Leeds United ever since he joined the Elland Road outfit at the age of 15.
