class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Foxes have been in strong form in the final third but our tipster is backing a tight affair when they host defensively-sound Wolves on Sunday
Leicester City can move top of the Premier League for at least a couple of hours when Wolves visit the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Currently one point behind Liverpool, who play Manchester City later in the day, Brendan Rodgers’ side will leapfrog his old club if the Foxes avoid defeat in this one.
Although Leicester have won five of their seven league matches with 17 goals to their name, Wolves boast the second-best defence in the league and represent a stern test for the 2015-16 champions.
Leicester City vs Wolves Latest Odds
The Foxes are on a two-game winning streak in the league and bet365 make them 13/10 (2.30) favourites to see off Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.
Wolves, though, have picked up 10 points from the last available 12 and are 9/4 (3.25) outsiders to make that 13 from 15.
Both meetings between these sides last season finished 0-0 and another draw is available at 11/5 (3.20) .
Leicester City vs Wolves Team News
James Maddison proved his fitness by playing 90 minutes in Leicester’s 4-0 win over Braga on Thursday, but Timothy Castagne, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans are all injured.
Santo will be without Jonny, and Fernando Marcal is a doubt, but otherwise the Portuguese manager has a full complement of players to choose from.
Leicester City vs Wolves Preview
Thursday’s comfortable victory in the Europa League made it 10 goals in the last three games in all competitions, and that sky-high confidence will be boosted even further by Jamie Vardy’s return after he was rested against Braga.
However, that impressive run could be set to end against a Wolves team that has conceded just once in their last four games and allowed just two shots on target in each of those fixtures.
As well as boasting one of the strongest defences, Santo’s side are the least-effective attack outside of the bottom four with just eight goals scored and average little over three shots on target per game.
Leicester City vs Wolves Tips and Predictions
It is set to be a tight affair at the King Power Stadium and the 5/6 (1.83) quote from bet365 on under 7.5 match shots on target offers decent value for punters, having paid out in five of Wolves’ seven fixtures this term.
