Leeds United's new predicted finish following the Premier League's 2022/2023 fixture release

Leeds United have been dealt a less challenging hand than previous Premier League seasons.

United have the opportunity to get points on the board early as they prepare to face Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Chelsea and Brighton in their first four games.
