Leicester City vs. Wolves: Premier League – Match Preview

After narrowly missing out on Champions League football in the last two campaigns, Leicester City kick start the 2021-22 campaign off at home to Wolves.

Leicester City lifted the FA Cup last season, beating Chelsea 1-0 in the final thanks to a Youri Tielemans winner.

Patson Daka is the stand out signing for City this season and he will offer Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho competition.

Wolves changed managers during the off-season, with Bruno Lage replacing Nuno Espirito Santo.

Trincao has arrived on loan from Barcelona, whilst Jose Sa has replaced Rui Patricio.

Match history
The last four meetings between the two sides has seen just the one goal and that came via a Jamie Vardy penalty last term.

The recent record between the pair is very close, with each winning once in the last five, with three draws.

Last five Premier League meetings
Wolves 0 Leicester City 0 – 07/02/21
Leicester City 1 Wolves 0 – 08/11/20
Wolves 0 Leicester City 0 – 14/02/20
Leicester City 0 Wolves 0 – 11/08/19
Wolves 4 Leicester City 3 – 19/01/19

Team news
Leicester will be without both Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana here, meaning Daniel Amartey will likely continue in defence.

Iheanacho scored the winner in the Community Shield last weekend, but will likely be on the bench again.

Wolves are without numerous key players here including Willy Boly, Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence.

They will welcome back Raul Jimenez though after he missed nearly nine months due to a serious head injury.

Expected starting XI’s
Leicester City (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Pereira, Amartey, Soyuncu, Bertrand; Ndidi, Tielemans; Perez, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Wolves (3-4-3): Sa; Saiss, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal; Traore, Jimenez, Trincao


Result: Leicester City
Leicester should just edged out Wolves in a tough to predict fixture

Correct Score: 1-0
Under 2.5 goals is a good bet given the recent record between the two teams

Anytime Goalscorer: Jamie Vardy
Vardy scored the winner when the pair met last term
