Leeds vs Wolves, Monday 8pm (Sky Sports)

The league’s great entertainers are back.

We expected Leeds to hit the ground running this season with their high-intensity style, but even the most optimistic of fans in West Yorkshire must be delighted with this start.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men held Man City last time out in a pulsating 1-1 encounter at Elland Road, with both sides having chances to snatch the three points.

Wolves got back to winning ways against Fulham, which was needed after an uncharacteristic thrashing at West Ham.

Nuno Santo’s side pride themselves on their ability to bounce back and it’ll be fascinating to see how they approach the tactical dilemma of this swarming Leeds outfit.

They will be targeting a European place again this season and can kickstart a run here with Newcastle, Palace, Leicester and Southampton to come next.

We see goals under the lights at Elland Road – and plenty of them.

Two of Leeds’ four top-flight games have featured three or more goals so far, but that doesn’t tell the entire truth.

Their 1-0 win over Sheffield United could and perhaps should have finished 3-3, while you could say something similar about the wide open draw with City.

Bielsa won’t change his style for the opposition and expect Leeds to be at it from the off after a fortnight to regroup.

Over 2.5 goals is a massive 23/20 and we think it should be an odds-on shout.
As decent as Wolves’ defence is, Leeds are hardly brilliant at the back and have conceded eight in four games.

We can see another score draw and as well as three or more goals, so back both teams to score in the first half at a very generous 17/4.

That was a winner in Leeds’ games with Liverpool and Fulham, while Wolves showed when they visited South Yorkshire in their season curtain raiser that they can start fast.

On that occasion, they led 2-0 after six minutes. Rapid.

Expect goals and expect them fast – there’s big profit to be had.

Patrick Bamford is riding on the crest of a promotion wave and continues to be preferred by Bielsa over big summer signing Rodrigo.

We’re not convinced that stays the case for the remainder of the campaign, but right now the softly-spoken frontman is showing a clinical side he lacked over the past two seasons in the Championship.

Get him while he’s hot – another Bamford goal is 21/10, which is £31 return for a tenner.

Klopp backs his defence and points finger at VAR after win over Sheffield United

klopp backs his defence and points finger at var after win over sheffield united

Jurgen Klopp stuck up for his defence after they faced some awkward moments in Liverpool‘s first Premier League game without Virgil van Dijk.

Klopp disputed the penalty decision that gave Sheffield United an early lead following Fabinho’s challenge on Oli McBurnie and threatened a major upset at Anfield.

Though Liverpool came back to win 2-1, Fabinho – a converted midfielder – was given a tough time alongside by McBurnie, particularly in the air, adding to the debate whether the champions need to sign another centre half in January.

‘It was clear it was a challenge to win the ball,’ said Klopp about the 13th-minute decision which was initially given outside the box by referee Mike Dean before VAR ruled it had taken place on the line of the penalty area.

‘We were on the wrong end of another decision and it gave Sheffield a boost so they could really get at us but luckily we could sort that tonight so maybe I should not talk too much about that.

‘We had a tough week with lots of minutes against tough opponents (Everton and Ajax) so I am really pleased with the response.

‘The penalty was not even a foul. During a season there are so many different periods, we have had an injustice and we have had to go again.’

Despite going joint-top of the table, McBurnie showed up Liverpool’s potential weakness in the air without Van Dijk who could miss the rest of the season after suffering ACL damage at Everton a week ago.

McBurnie missed a golden chance to put his side 2-0 up and had another penalty claim rejected before Sadio Mane set up goals for Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.

‘He gave a proper No 9 performance and got between their two centre halves,’ said his admiring Blades manager Chris Wilder.

‘I can take our performance every day, it was really good. But this is a ruthless league and it’s a cruel result to take.’

Klopp gave special praise to Mane who was the main attacking threat – apart from an audacious free-kick from the halfway line by Trent Alexander-Arnold that nearly saw a goal.

‘Sadio was outstanding. One-against-one, you couldn’t defend against him,’ added Klopp.

It was Khabib‘s first fight since the death of his father and trainer, Abdulmanap, in July.

After his sensational victory, he dropped to the ground in tears before he announced his retirement.

And speaking to Gaethje after the fight, he urged the American to cherish his parents.

He said: “Thank you so much Justin. In 2016 I remember, when I cut weight, you helped me a lot. Thank you brother.

“I know you’re a great man and I know how you take care of your close people. I know lots of things about you.

“Be close to your parents because one day it’s going to happen.

“You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, you never know.”

Sharing a snap of them together, he wrote: “When ALLAH with you, nobody can broke you, nobody.

“Thanks Father for everything, you teach all my life, may ALLAH grant you the highest Paradise.”
