Wolves vs Leicester Match Preview

Wolves kept cool in their previous time out, against Manchester United as the match ended in a goalless draw at the Old Trafford. However, the host managed only three wins in their last ten fixtures across all major contests.

The Wolves are on a three-game winless streak at home with their recent home match ending in a defeat. To make it worse, the 3-2 win over Manchester City in later December was their prior win at home.

Their gaffer, Nuno Esperito favors the 3-5-2 formation. It gives Wolves solidity at the back with three center halves vigilantly guarding the backdoor and two wingbacks shuttling down the flanks. They are defensively strong but it is not sure whether they can hold the Foxes.

With a massive 49 points in the league, Leicester City is 15 points above the hosting contingent in the Premier League table.

Leicester City did show some promise in the league and a good challenge for Liverpool. But their eight-game winning streak in the campaign was halted with a draw to Norwich at home. Thereafter, the Foxes went on to lose four of their ten league matches.

The Foxes will be visiting after a 2-2 draw on the road with Chelsea in their prior clash in the campaign. With just three losses in their last ten away fixtures in all major competitions, Leicester will probably hope to head back home with something from the match.

Brendan Rodgers believes in his teams keeping possession of the ball and playing a flowing passing game with the ball always moving. Defensively, he likes his team to put a lot of pressure on the opposing team with more involvement in counter-attacks.

Considering Wolve’s strong defensive line and Leicester strong pressing, we can expect a close encounter to unveil at Molineux.
