What channel is Leeds vs Wolves on? TV, live stream, kick off for Premier League game | Football | Sport
This is the firstclash between Leeds and Wolves since the 2003/04 season. The Whites are seeking to extend an unbeaten run to four games, having held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at Elland Road last time out. Wolves are aiming to secure back-to-back wins over promoted sides, after beating Fulham 1-0 in their last fixture.
Leeds centre-half will miss this one due to a groin problem he picked up while on international duty with Spain.
A groin injury could also rule out captain Liam Cooper, but Jack Harrison is available again after sitting out against parent club Manchester City.
Fernando Marcal has returned to training with Wolves and could feature, but Jonny Castro is sidelined with a knee injury.
There were concerns Wolves’ Portuguese players would have to isolate after Cristiano Ronaldo tested postitive for coronavirus during the recent international break, but the likes of Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho and Daniel Podence have all been cleared to play.
“I’m very gratefulfor the work that (director of football) Victor Orta has done and also the group that helps him.
“I also value the contribution of the club, the president has been able to incorporate the players that we needed.”
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo: “It has got more challenging because of the disruption of preparation due to the international games.
“So, all of these things together, it’s a big challenge for us. It’s a big challenge for everybody.
“The load on the players, the short period, everything – plus the tough and hard opponents we have in front of us every week, competing in the Premier League.

“I would say, yes, it’s definitely the toughest season that we have had. You just follow the normal routines and expect things to be OK, so they don’t affect your decisions.
“But even the protocol is not totally clear. It says you have to have 14 players available – but that 14 includes all the players that have professional contracts with the club.
“We could be talking about under-23s, under-18s, so that says, no matter what happens, you will always play.
