Sky Sports pundit Neil Mellor has predicted the outcome of Wolves’ clash with Leeds United on Saturday.
Wolves will face Marcelo Bielsa’s side looking to continue the momentum of three straight wins.
Leeds have recorded just one Premier League win this season but Mellor thinks that will change this weekend.
“These are two teams in a contrasting run of form.
Leeds are hanging just above the relegation zone while Wolves have won their last three Premier League matches, coming from two goals behind to beat rivals Aston Villa 3-2 last weekend.
“Despite that, Leeds are yet to fire on all cylinders but this could be the turning point in front of a sold-out Elland Road. Leeds United 2-1 Wolves.”
Leeds are there for the taking if Wolves can perform to their best and take confidence from their last three wins.
Bruno Lage played a 3-5-2 at Villa Park, dropping Raul Jimenez to the bench after international duty.
Jimenez should be back in the side this week but that poses a conundrum for Lage, as he also seeks the best way to take on Bielsa’s high-tempo team.
Mellor echoes his fellow Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson’s prediction, but it is not quite clear why Wolves are not being backed to continue their good form here. They are capable of getting all three points in this one.
