Leicester vs Wolves predictions and betting tips for the Premier League on Sunday 11th August. Wolves travel to the King Power after their 4-0 midweek win in Armenia.
Leicester can be reasonably happy with their transfer business this summer. The early acquisitions of Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez for a combined £70m look to be expensive, but astute signings. The loss of Harry Maguire will be felt, with the Foxes not choosing to reinvest in a replacement at this time. Turkish international defender, Çağlar Söyüncü, will now have his chance to impress alongside Johnny Evans. With Brendan Rodgers in charge, expect goals from the Foxes as they continue to employ his attacking philosophy.
Wolves have used the transfer window to bolster their squad ahead of the new campaign. Patrick Cutrone, Meritan Shabani and Jesús Vallejo are all new arrivals whilst Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker have made their deals permanent. Wolves won both their preseason games against Premier League opposition before beginning their Europa League qualification in July. The West Midlands side have already dispatched of Crusaders and look well on their way to progressing past Armenian side, Pyunik.
Wolves come into this matchup having made the long midweek trip to Armenia. The majority of their favoured starting XI featured in this match, which could be of concern for them. On one hand, Wolves have the advantage of already having competitive matches under their belt, but a long trip will little recovery for a reasonably small squad could take its toll.
Brendan Rodgers has brought attacking flair to the Foxes since his arrival midway through last campaign. Leicester improved from an average of 1.2 goals per game to 1.7 during this spell. Most notably, Jamie Vardy went on his best scoring run, netting eight in ten. With James Maddison and Youri Tielmans supplying goalscoring opportunities, Jamie Vardy to score anytime at 13/10 looks well priced.
Neither side represent outstanding clean sheet prospects for this encounter. Leicester kept ten shut outs whilst Wolves picked up nine. These tallies were bettered or equaled by the likes of Cardiff and Bournemouth. Leicester look set to notch at the King Power but don’t be surprised if they concede to a solid Wolves side who performed well against strong opposition last time out. Both teams to score is priced at 20/23.
