Two sides with big aspirations for the season do battle at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday as Wolverhampton Wanderers visit Leicester City.

Wolves have finished 7th in the last two seasons and are no doubt hoping to improve on that this time around having made their best start to a Premier League campaign since their return to the top flight in 2018.

Leicester too have impressed under Brendan Rodgers and sit just a point behind leaders Liverpool in second place ahead of matchday 8 in the Premier League.

The Foxes were impressive in Europe midweek with a 4-0 victory over Braga – goals from Iheanacho, Maddison and Praet securing a comfortable victory.

Extra credit can perhaps be afforded to manager Brendan Rodgers for the way his side performed considering the names currently out with injury. Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira, Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans and Wilfred Ndidi were all absent and are expected to once again sit out against Wolves.

The Molineux outfit have far fewer injuries of their own to contend with, though, with just Jonny and Fernando Marcal likely to miss the game with Leicester.

A win over the Foxes would elevate Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in to the Premier League’s top four, somewhere no doubt they would be delighted to finish come the end of the season.

This is a clash of two exciting sides with high hopes for the campaign and should make for fascinating viewing come Sunday afternoon.

Leicester v Wolves is a 2pm kick off on 8th November.
