Home   /   Leeds Suffer First Home League Defeat against Wolves

Raul Jiménez strike sent Wolverhampton sixth in the Premier League table as his team gradually recovered from a poor start to come out victorious at Elland Road.

Leeds started on the front foot, targeting the right flank, and even managed to score six minutes into the game, but Patrick Bamford appeared to be offside.

The next big chance for Bielsa’s men came in the 16th minute, when they unfolded a brilliant counterattack with three passes, which was finished by Hélder Costa, but his shot went wide.

From that moment on, though, it seemed Wolves have got themselves together, as they looked more solid when trying to fight off Leeds’ efforts.

Through to the end of the first half, The Whites kept on trying to break through the opposition’s defence with different types of crosses and set-piece routines, but none of them brought any success.

The second period started in a completely different manner, with Wolverhampton being superior in all aspects of the game, overpowering Leeds and creating plenty of chances.

Early on Saïss scored a brilliant volley. It was disallowed as Daniel Podence was caught offside in the build-up.

Nuno Santo’s team reaped the dividends of their efforts in the 70th minute, when Jiménez cut inside, and his shot deflected at the bottom left corner off the head of Phillips.

In the last 15 minutes Leeds did not put much pressure on Rui Patricio, as Wolves comfortably kept their lead and recorded a second successive Premier League win.
