Tough game for us tonight. Wolves are usually pretty solid and not the easiest to break down. They had a good record at our place in the Championship so we owe them one.

No doubt we'll have a go at them and see what occurs. I expect it to be tough for Bamford tonight with the way Wolves set up with the 3 centre backs so we will need to rely on width and pulling those defenders out a bit to create space.

Bit of a worry at centre back as we picked up two injuries on international duty but Marcelo has had a few days to come up with a plan.

Good news to have Pablo Hernandez back tonight as a possible option, despite his age he's got a great football brain. Harrison is back too and Raphinha will be on the bench after his move so we're looking healthy for attacking weapons.

Hope Marcelo starts with Rodrigo at 10. The bloke was instrumental against City, can see why we paid the money for that extra bit of class now, he just links up the play so well.

That Costa one was more in the 'initiated contact' as opposed to dive, no?

From afar if you asked me who was playing I'd have said Portugal were playing England.

England have been a bit too positive for that to be the case.

Portugal's football is incredibly dour. It's a huge myth that they're good to watch.

From the two games I watched recently I'd agree with you. I was more talking about the kits because I got a stream link and I said what in the world is this.

Yeah I do mean Wolves although tbh you could apply it to Portugal too. Both are good sides but very dour to watch.

Wolves are as dull to watch as anybody in the league.

Leeds have been excellent first half. Great on the ball and their work rate is top notch! Just need to make more clear cut chances.

Quality from Meslier, that. Had fuck all to do all half then saves when it matters. Wolves have been poor. Leeds dominated for about all but 30 seconds of that half.

Weird seeing our defence on the half way line and Wolves pretty much across their box. They are definitely being precautious, to be fair you could say its working.

Whilst we have dominated, we've not really created clear cut chances, they have all been half chances really.

We are just missing that final ball of quality. We have players in the bench that can offer that, Pablo Hernandez may get the shout here to try and unlock this Wolves defence.

We just need to be careful. Last minute if the first half was evidence of that.

Unfortunate that that will be ruled out but it is the right decision.

What exactly does Nelson Semedo bring to this Wolves side? He can't retain the ball and is terrible going forward.

Shame Podence was slightly off. That was a great finish from Saiss.
