After Leeds avoided relegation on the final day of last season, the main feeling at Leeds this summer has been one of relief. They then sold star duo Rafinha and Calvin Phillips, and Elland Road is a little apprehensive that they could be in a relegation battle again. Jesse Marsh has spent a lot of money, including on USMNT stars Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams, and he’s going to need a positive start to prove he’s up to the job.

As for the Wolves, little has changed with them. Bruno Lage’s team threatened to make it to Europe for most of last season, but at the end of the season they fell hard and the style of football wasn’t all that electrifying. Laga needs to start this campaign quickly to gain momentum.

Below is everything you need ahead of Leeds vs Wolves on Saturday.

Key storylines

Although he arrived in the last months of last season and supported Leeds, there is still no opinion of the majority of Leeds fans about Jesse Marsh. It has always been difficult to replace the legendary Marcelo Bielsa, but Marsh has a chance to change Leeds’ approach and we saw it during pre-season. Now they are more reliable with the 4-2-3-1 system and the balance seems to be better, at least in defense. Watching Leeds manage without Rafinha (sold to Barcelona) and Phillips (sold to Man City) will be intriguing because they were the two players who helped Leeds cross the line last season.

Wolves’ problem is still scoring goals. Defensively, they’re solid, but with Raul Jimenez out of the first month of the season with an injury, who’s going to take it to the next level? Bruno Lage’s team is very good at holding the ball and in José Sa they have one of the best goalkeepers outside the top six in the Premier League. However, their ambitions have changed and the lack of spending this summer shows that European aspirations are unrealistic for the Wolves, with a stable mid-table position as their main goal.

Leeds team news, injuries, squad options

Marsh has a lot of injury issues as Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo, Adam Forshaw and Luis Sinisterra are out, plus Dan James is suspended and Liam Cooper is in question. But with Patrick Bamford back in form and Aaronson and Adams playing well in pre-season, Leeds have a lot of options.

Raul Jiménez was out of action until September after suffering a knee injury in preseason, which was a huge blow. Chiquinho is also out, with Adama Traore, Nelson Semedo and Matia Sarkic in question.
