Jesse Marsch will be hoping his seven summer signings will be able to soften the blow of losing Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips.

Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca, Tyler Adams, Darko Gyabi, Luis Sinisterra and Sonny Perkins will all be in contention to play their first Premier League match for Leeds.
Elsewhere, Bruno Lage has been handed a massive blow to his striking options as talisman Raul Jiminez is set to be out for several weeks having sustained a medial knee issue.
And back-up forward Fabio Silva has been loaned out to Anderlecht which leaves the Wolves boss with no out-and-out striker.
However, Adama Traore has returned from his disappointing loan spell at Barcelona, which could tempt Lage into putting the Spaniard up-top in the mean time.
- Leeds to win 13/10
- Draw 9/4
- Wolves to win 23/10
