Leeds face Wolves for the first time in the Premier League since 2004.
And thanks to the attacking riches that both sides possess, you’re more likely to hear a footie fan say “VAR’s working very well” than “This one’s gonna be 0-0”.

Our Top Odds Pick – Leeds to Win – 11/8 at Paddy Power
Wolves’ trip to Leeds is as eagerly-awaited as an Uber Eats delivery.
And it’s set to be just as tasty too.
Leeds have looked right at home in their return to the Premier League, winning two, drawing one and losing one of their first four games.
But when you consider that the loss was at Anfield and the draw was against Man City, then that start looks even more impressive.
Wolves, on the other hand, have been surprisingly toothless for most of this season, losing two and labouring to a win against Fulham, since winning on the opening day.
Our Extra Pick – Over 3.5 Goals – 13/5 at Betfair
Every week this season there has been at least one score that would look more at home on a tennis scoreboard.
We’ve had 7-2, 6-1 and 5-2 twice.
Leeds have contributed to this madness with a couple of 4-3 games, and their matches have seen an average of over four goals.
Two of Wolves’ games have also seen four goals scored.
Add in the fact that neither team has kept a clean sheet against a team that isn’t currently in the bottom four, and you don’t have to be Rachel Riley to calculate there’s goals in store at Elland Road.
Our Long Shot – Patrick Bamford to Score First – 6/1 at bet365
Wolves’ games have followed a specific pattern this season.
Concede first against good teams, score first against rubbish teams.
And with Leeds being very firmly in the “good” camp, we reckon Leeds striker Patrick Bamford is worth a cheeky punt to nab the first goal, as he has taken a real liking to the Premier League, netting three times in four games this campaign.
