Wolverhampton vs Leicester City Preview


Leicester City will attend to the short journey across to Molineux to take on rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.


A victory for the visitors will propel them into second place, leapfrogging Manchester City after their game against West Ham United was postponed.

On the flip side, Wolves will ascend into sixth place in the table with a victory. Funny enough, Wolves record of one win in their last eight in all competitions may not seem like top-6 football but so far it is proving good enough.

Leicester have only secured a single clean sheet I all of their last 13 Premier League games and that statistic must be rectified if they are to engage in a strong battle against a determined Wolves side.

The Foxes also enjoy a 10 point buffer between themselves and fifth place and with Champions League football certainly returning to the KP in September, the 2016 Premier League Champions will not want to let any more momentum slip.

Wolves have a lot to rectify as well with one Premier League win in their last six games but are unbeaten in each of their last four games at home against their local rivals.

The two sides endured a 0-0 draw on opening weekend and with neither team willing to sacrifice defensive cohesion with the stakes this high another draw could be on the cards.

Wolves have not been impressive at home either this season, having been successful in a mere four home games out of 12 played so far.

Adama Traore looks to have recovered from shoulder and leg injuries against Manchester United last time out and could make an appearance possibly off the bench.

While Jamie Vardy has struggled for goals lately, the slack has been picked up valiantly but Harvey Barnes, Ayoze Perez and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Nampalys Mendy and Daniel Amartey are still doubtful for Leicester while Wes Morgan could return to the match day squad.

It could be a game which comes alive in the second half as almost 60% of Leicester’s goals coming in the second half while 70% of Wolves goals have come after the restart. It then makes perfect sense to expect goals in the second half especially since all but one of Wolves last 13 Premier League goals have come in the second half.
