Three things we learned from Leeds vs Wolves

1. Wolves score early, sit back: It was a really strange display from Wolves, as Bruno Lage’s men took an early lead but then totally sat back and allowed Leeds to have the ball. They threatened a few times on the break but this was a really disjointed display.

2. Leeds miss Phillips: The England international didn’t feature and is struggling with injury. Had he been on the pitch, Leeds would have created more clear-cut chances. Phillips needs to return quickly for them if they’re going to surge up the table and add to their one win from nine games so far this season. The other worrying factor is that Raphinha came off injured in the second half. Leeds will be hoping his injury isn’t a serious one.

3. Lack of goals issue for both: Both of these teams are well-organized and tough to play against, but scoring goals remains an issue. Leeds have scored eight goals in their nine games this season, while Wolves have scored nine. Both teams have to find a way of being more clinical if they want to push for European qualification.

Man of the Match: Raphinha – Showed his class and Leeds missed him when he went off injured.


Wolves took the lead after Raul Jimenez played a key role and Hwang Hee-chan was on hand to finish.

Leeds responded well to going behind as Jack Harrison slammed a shot just wide and Raphinha curled an effort just wide of the far post.

Mateusz Klich also went close, as Leeds did all the pressing.

Leeds huffed and puffed, as Wolves at back and soaked up the pressure, and the hosts were dealt a blow as Raphinha came off with an injury.

Substitute Joe Gelhardt flashed a shot over, and in the 94th minute Leeds were level.

Gelhardt won a penalty kick in stoppage time, as Rodrigo equalized to send Elland Road will and grab a deserved point for the hosts.
