Last season's Championship winners have impressed on their return to the English Premier League for the first time in 16 years and held Manchester City to 1-1 draw before the international break, to occupy eighth spot after four matches. 
 
“I think almost everyone is surprised at how we are doing, but those who saw us last year will know what we are about," said Leeds striker Patrick Bamford. 

For the fans
  
“The fact we have brought the same energy, enthusiasm and style that we had in the Championship, I think people are respecting it.

“You see a lot of teams come up and sit back against the big teams hoping for a draw, but we go with the mentality of having nothing to lose and people are warming to Leeds.”
 
Wolves returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at home to Fulham before the international break, with the result coming after back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and West Ham United respectively.

Wolves claimed a 3-0 win over Leeds in the most recent match between the two teams across all competitions in 2018 while you'd have to go as far back as 2004 for the last Premier League encounter. Goals from Alan Smith, Dominic Matteo, James Milner and Mark Viduka spearheaded Leeds to a 4-1 win at Elland Road when the two teams last locked horns in England's top-flight.
