Wolves and Leicester City will take on each other on Friday evening. The Wolves produced an excellent display in their goalless draw against Man United at Old Trafford. That surely gave fans a reason for hope about Friday’s clash. Wolverhampton are eager to keep place in the Champions League, and fans are positive that they will gain a victory against the Foxes.
Brendan Rodgers’ troops, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw against Chelsea in their previous league game, but their main striker Jamie Vardy is not in his best shape at the moment. Anyway, according to the attacking potential of Leicester City, fans believe that the clash will be fascinating.
Wolverhampton have noticeably dropped off their form after just one victory in eight competitive games (one win, three draws, and four losses). All five matches were won or lost by a one-goal margin.
Wolves are hoping for their solid defense. As you may know, their average of 1.28 conceded goals per match is the sixth-best in the PL.
On the other hand, Leicester have also slightly dipped, with two victories in seven games (two wins, two draws, and three losses). They netted in each of those games, though, and with their average of 2.16 goals per PL match, they are the third-best in the division. Also noteworthy that Leicester have scored the opening goal in eight consecutive Premier League away matches.
Stat attack and Players to watch
