Wolves against Leicester City will be an intriguing clash at Molineux on Sunday.
Leicester City will be looking to get their Premier League campaign back on track when they travel to Wolves this Sunday afternoon.
Leicester City travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon as they try to put to bed a run of four Premier League games without a win that has put manager Brendan Rodgers under pressure.
The Foxes were knocked out of the FA Cup in January by Nottingham Forest, dropped into the Europa Conference League after a poor start to their European campaign in the autumn and are five points off the top half in the league table.
Wolves, on the other hand, are flying under Bruno Lage and are only six points off a top-four spot going into Sunday’s fixtures, with two games in hand.
As for Leicester, well, they continue to leak goals galore and Brendan Rodgers has been very frustrated with this team in recent months. Yes, they are missing key players as Wesley Fofana has been out all season and Jamie Vardy hasn’t played since December, but they still have enough quality to be battling for European qualification. Instead, they sit in 11th place in the table and are 10 points behind Wolves heading into this clash. The Foxes conceded a late set-piece goal (they’ve conceded more goal from set pieces than any other team this season) against West Ham last time out as they drew 2-2 to pass up a great chance to get back to winning ways. They have just five wins in their last 19 PL games and have to win at Wolves to have any hope of clawing their way back into the European battle.
The Portuguese has built his side on solid foundations, with Wolves conceding the joint-fewest amount of goals in the top flight so far this campaign.
Leicester City vs Wolves Team news
Wolves have an almost fully-fit squad going into this fixture, with midfielder Joao Moutinho back from injury, and forward Pedro Neto the only long-term absentee.
Leicester, meanwhile, have big problems in their ranks. Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana, James Justin, Ryan Bertrand, Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans are all ruled out for the foreseeable future, while James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu had to limp off against Randers in midweek and are unlikely to feature here.
Wolves’ miserly defence and Leicester’s decimated squad list are a combination which strongly suggests a home win.
