Pundit Paul Merson has predicted the outcome of Wolves’ trip to Elland Road to face Leeds for Sportskeeda.

Wolves take on Marcelo Bielsa’s men on the back of three consecutive Premier League wins.

But former Arsenal star Merson, who also works as a pundit for Sky Sports, thinks the winning run will come to an end.

Merson’s prediction

“Wolves staged a great comeback against Aston Villa last weekend in the Premier League. They were never in the game for 80 minutes or so, but they came back to win the derby 3-2 with three quick-fire goals.

“Leeds, on the other hand, disappointed me against Southampton and didn’t even have a shot on target.

“This is a big game for both teams, but I just get the feeling that Leeds will nick this one.

“They are a different team at home and will look to win their second Premier League game of the season after comfortably beating Watford earlier this month. Prediction: Leeds United 2-1 Wolves.”

Merson’s fellow pundit Mark Lawrenson thinks the game will end 1-1 at Elland Road.

 

Both think Wolves will not be able to get another three points, but there are reasons for confidence ahead of the clash.

Leeds are without Patrick Bamford and Kalvin Phillips. They have won just once this season and were abject at Southampton last time out.

Wolves are capable of proving the pundits wrong here.
