Both sides had chances in an exciting game at Molineux and Whites skipper Liam Cooper was denied three times at set-pieces while latching on to brilliant deliveries from Raphinha.

But the hosts left with all three points to become the first team this season to complete the double over Leeds who now drop below Wolves into 12th, though having played one game less and United are still 13 points clear of the drop zone.

Leeds missed a golden opportunity to take the lead in the 20th minute when Cooper latched on to a Raphinha free-kick but could only head straight at ‘keeper Rui Patricio.

Pedro Neto then fired wide at the other end before United was denied by the post as a Mateusz Klich effort smacked back off the frame of the goal.

Pascal Struijk’s follow-up shot was saved before Tyler Roberts fired broad.

Back came Wolves and Meslier made a good save to deny Nelson Semedo from close range and Meslier then denied the same player at a tight angle.

A deflected Raphinha shot then trickled just wide, narrowly evading Tyler Roberts, and it proved the last attempt of an even first half.
