Leicester City vs Wolverhampton Prediction

Wolverhampton is coming into this match playing in much better form than Leicester City has been in recently. They have lost 2 of their last 3 matches but overall they have been very good winning most of their matches over their last 9 and they have been very good when playing at home. They are going up against a Leicester City side that has been awful in their recent matches and they have also been riddled with injuries, missing a lot of their quality players in those matches. Wolverhampton has a very good defense and they have been very good at home, Leicester has not been good on the road and they will likely struggle scoring goals in this match on that great Wolverhampton defense. This should be a match that Wolverhampton collects all 3 points in.

Notable Quotes

 
“We are real as a football club. You’ll get people asking if we can hang on to these players for the next six or seven years but, the reality is, if a player does really well at Leicester, he may want to leave and move on to another club. For us, it’s just about being ready for that.” - Brendan Rodgers on not being able to keep Youri Tielemans.
 
 
"We did a good game, especially the first 45 minutes. We were playing against a top team, the manager is one of the best, but we played against them with the character I have asked of them over the last weeks. I think we controlled the game — maybe they had one or two chances but we had other chances to score. We played how I like us to play and won the three points." - Bruno Lage on their recent Tottenham match.
