Leicester City will be hoping to maintain their push for a top 4 finish in the Premier League this season when they travel to Molineux to play Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Foxes have been tipped by some to be a strong player in the title race this campaign, but with a 5-point difference between themselves and Manchester City at the top, more pragmatic opinions suggest that securing a Champions League berth is more probable.
A midweek win over Fulham continues Leicester’s push towards the top with 16 games remaining of the Premier League season.
Wolves meanwhile have not enjoyed as fruitful a campaign, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side struggling to find any real form in 2020/21.
After consecutive 7th placed finishes in the top flight not many will have tipped Wanderers to be 14th at this stage of the season.
Victory over Arsenal on Wednesday was a much needed result for Santo’s side who moved 12 points clear of the bottom 3 with victory.
Injury has played a key part in Wolves’ season so far and several first team regulars remain absent. Raul Jimenez is still recovering from a fractured skull, whilst Fernando Marcal, Jonny Otto and Rayan Ait Nouri will all be missing for the visit of Leicester.
The Foxes have also had plenty of players all too familiar with the inside of the treatment room – Jamie Vardy has missed the last few games due to undergoing keyhole surgery, but in his press conference boss Brendan Rodgers admitted he is “very confident” the striker will be fit to face Wolves.
However, influential new signings Timothy Castagne and Wesley Fofana won’t be involved at Molineux. Dennis Praet also remains sidelined whilst Wilfred Ndidi will be put through a late fitness test to determine his availability.
Wolves v Leicester is a 2pm kick off on Sunday 7th February.
