Leeds United on away loss to Wolves at Molineux Stadium on Friday. Wolverhampton Wanderers were looking to pick up points after winning last match. Leeds United, on the other hand, were beaten 4-2 in the previous match against Arsenal. After today’s result, Wolverhampton Wanderers are in 11th place on the table and has 33 points while Leeds United sit in 12th with 32 points after 25 matches.

After a goalless first half, Wolverhampton Wanderers continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with a goal from Illan Meslier, 64 minutes in, which sealed the victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Both managers the full entitlement. For Wolves, Fernando Marcal, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Fabio Silva came on for Jonny Castro, Fernando Marcal and Willian Jose, and Leeds brought on Pablo Hernandez, Helder Costa and Ezgjan Alioski for Jamie Shackleton, Jack Harrison and Mateusz Klich.

The referee booked Pedro Neto for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will play away against Newcastle United, while Leeds United will face Aston Villa at home.
