Leicester City will entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they hope to pick up all three points at home. The Foxes managed to get the better of Manchester City in the Community Shield by a 1-0 scoreline, so they will be full of confidence heading into this league clash this weekend.
Brendan Rodgers will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name a strong starting XI for this game. The Leicester boss could stick with the winning formula and name an unchanged lineup for this home showdown versus Wolves.
4-2-3-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Kasper Schmeichel will operate in between the sticks for the Foxes after he kept a clean sheet versus Man City last weekend. Caglar Soyuncu will continue to feature along with Daniel Amartey at the heart of the Leicester backline as they try to restrict the opposition attackers from scoring on Saturday.
Ricardo Pereira will continue to play at right-back while Ryan Bertrand looks to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will probably get a chance to join in on the attack and create some decent chances for their teammates in the Wolves half.
Wilfred Ndidi will once again partner up Youri Tielemans in the holding midfield positions as they look to dominate the battle at the centre of the park. Harvey Barnes will get the nod to start as the left-winger while Ayoze Perez hopes to catch the eye on the right flank.
James Maddison would once again play in the number ten position as the attacking midfielder. Rodgers will ask him to play on the shoulders of Jamie Vardy and carry most of the creative workload for the Foxes.
Boubakary Soumaré will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game as a second-half substitute if required.
Jamie Vardy will lead the charge for the East Midlands giants up front. The English striker failed to register a goal against Man City in the Community Shield, so he will be desperate to get off the mark in the opening weekend of this Premier League campaign.
Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka should make up the numbers on the Leicester bench as they await their opportunity to shine in the latter stages of the game if needed.
