Premier League high-flyers Leicester City will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league when they take on fellow European challengers Wolverhampton Wanderers on the weekend. Both the teams have been hitting well above their respective weights this season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see both Leicester and Wolves making it into the highly coveted European slots at the end of what has undoubtedly been an exciting league campaign.
While Wolves are coming into this tie on the back of a slightly stale 0-0 draw against Manchester United, Brendan Rodgers’ side are sure to have their tails up, having taken a point off Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their last league outing. The current situation sees the Foxes sitting just two points behind Manchester City on the league table, leaving a Leicester City jump to second place a real possibility in the coming weeks.
Daniel Amartey’s troubling season continues to worsen as he’s set to miss out on more action owing to an impending foot operation. Matthew James, meanwhile, has stepped up his recovery process and is already training with the development squad. Wes Morgan is another crucial name who is set to miss out on this fixture, while winter loan acquisition Ryan Bennett, unfortunately, cannot play against his parent club.
4-1-4-1 Predicted Leicester City Lineup Vs Wolves
Kasper Schmeichel’s place between the sticks has never really been scrutinised up to this point, meaning that the veteran shot-stopper is set to continue between the sticks. In front of him, we expect Brendan Rodgers to go with a tried and tested back-line, with Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyunçu operating as the two centre-halves. Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira will be responsible for providing a lot of the Foxes’ width while going forward.
Wilfried Ndidi was expected to make his return to the side against Chelsea prior to the winter break but wasn’t able to due to a nagging injury. Although Choudhury has shown himself in a good light over the last few weeks, we could see Ndidi coming back into the team. Youri Tielemans and James Maddison are the pair expected to take up the more attack-minded midfield roles, while Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes will be looking to stick to the touch-line to stretch the Wolves back-three as much as possible.
Jamie Vardy’s unbelievable goalscoring run came to an unexpected halt last year, and he’s struggled to maintain the same confidence since that point in time. The skipper’s consolation goal against City in the third week of December was the last time he found the net in the league.
