Mexican international striker Jimenez is no bigger than 9-2 favourite to score first and only 8-5 as an any time scorer making him a shorter price than Whites no 9 Patrick Bamford who is 6-1 to notch first and 43-20 any time.

Wolves have a host of likely candidates to net first with record-signing Fabio Silva, Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto all in the first seven in the betting.

United's record signing Rodrigo and interestingly newer-recruit Raphinha are next in the pecking order for Leeds in the first scorer market with lightning fast Wolves winger Adama Traore as big as 11-1 to score first and 9-2 any time.

Yet in a very close market, Marcelo Bielsa's Whites are still favourites to end the night with a victory at around the 6-4 mark with Wolves as big as 2s and the draw on offer at 5-2.

Despite that, a 1-1 draw is actually the favoured outcome in the correct score market at 6-1 followed by a 1-0 triumph for the Whites at 8s and then 1-0 success for the visitors at 17-2.

In a confusing market, both teams to score is favourite but still a good price at 5-6 given the attacking talent on display with 11-10 on offer about just one or neither side netting.

Yet essentially Leeds are just about fancied to come out on top with the strongest pointer from the market suggesting that keeping Jimenez quiet will be absolutely key.
