Wolves team news and predicted XI vs Leeds United

All the latest news ahead of the relegation six pointer

Despite having lost three of their last six games, Wolves face a relegation six-pointer as they play host to fellow drop zone scrappers Leeds United on Saturday afternoon.

Julen Lopetegui’s side fell to a battling 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United in their last game, and currently sit 13th in the Premier League, but just three points above the drop zone in a congested bottom half of the table.

13 points shy of the magical 40 point mark that usually marks survival, they could take a massive step towards staying up in what has been a disappointing season should they pick up all three points at Molineux, extending the gap over their opponents to seven points and taking them yet further from the relegation zone.

Leeds United, meanwhile, need to begin turning things around, currently sitting 19th in the Premier League and with just one win from their last six games. though a win against Wolves could see them move as high as 14th should other results go their way, such is the congested nature of the drop zone.

We take a look at the latest team news from the Wolves camp, and how we expect them to set up for the clash.
