Wolves vs Leicester
It’s not been the first half of the season that Wolves would have hoped for, though a 2-1 win over the Gunners last time out was their first since 15th December and that should hopefully spur them on. Leicester weathered a plucky Fulham side on Wednesday night to run out 2-0 winners thanks to first half goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and James Justin and should be expecting a similar fight this weekend.
One potentially big piece of news for Brendan Rogers is the returns of Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi.
While his side coped admirably without the duo last time out against the Cottagers, Leeds managed to take full advantage of their absence in a 3-1 win last weekend and if they were to feature here, that would be a major boost to their chances.
Amazingly, Leicester’s points per game (ppg) increases 33% in the 39 games the Nigerian has started compared to the 21 he hasn’t since the beginning of last term, so a lot will ride on his availability.
However, Wolves have a bigger loss of their own in Raul Jimenez, as that win over what was eventually a nine-man Arsenal side midweek was just their second in 12 matches since his injury.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side see an incredible 135% increase in ppg when the Mexican forward has started since the beginning of last season, as output remains a huge issue without him, so we can’t see them firing many past this Leicester backline, even without Wesley Fofana.
