Leeds vs Wolves

Leeds are set to return to Premier League action in a week’s time.

The Whites will welcome Wolves to Ellan Road in a Monday evening clash.

Leeds head into the tie in pretty decent form having picked up two wins and a draw from their opening four league outings of the season.

Said draw would come against Manchester City whilst their only loss of the campaign so far saw them play out an enthralling 4-3 tie with Liverpool at Anfield on the opening weekend.

As a result, despite Wolves once again proving a solid outfit this term, Marcelo Bielsa’s men probably fancy their chances of getting something from Monday’s game.

Leeds duo injured

However, it does look as though they will have to do so without two of their senior centre-backs.

First up, Liam Cooper would miss Scotland’s win over Slovakia on Sunday.

Scotland boss Steve Clarke has since confirmed that the defender has picked up an injury:

“Unfortunately Liam Cooper has picked up an injury and he will be out the next two games.”

Leeds also look likely to be without new boy Diego Llorente after Spain confirmed on Sunday that the stopper had picked up a muscle injury and would not travel to Ukraine with the rest of the national team:
