Nuno managed to get the season rolling with a point at home to Everton. Wolves playing 10 against 11 for most of the game. Everton defender Phil Jageilka was sent-off after a horrible tackle on Diego Jota.

Goals from Neves and Jimenez secured the draw. Richarlison scored both goals for Everton, and look out for Neves, he also had the assist on the goal of Jimenez.

Leicester made the most out of their visit to Old Trafford, but the result in the end was nothing but a “donut”, and that is seldom great, but again a lot of positives.

The introduction of James Maddison made it possible to hope for more, and the fact that Leicester had the ball more than Manchester United, makes no secret of what Claude Puel is trying to achieve with this team.

The big question is, does Leicester City have the material to play in this way and get points enough to be satisfied with the outcome.

Wolves will come to Leicester with a point in the bag from their home clash with Everton, getting back from being behind and really showing their quality.

Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire are both back in the frame for a starting position and hopefully it will be possible for Claude Puel to play his best team

From a fans point of view, it will be massive to get a win at home and set the standard for this season, hopefully James Maddison and Jamie Vardy will put on a great show.

The partnership between the two is what we are both waiting for and to see them together would be great, so hopefully both will be starting.

Wolves is a team to respect and we all remember the last clash between the two teams, ending in a defeat in pre-season last summer at Molineux Ground.

For all former official games between the two, you will see that Leicester have 42 wins, Wolves 36 and 32 games have ended in draws.

You should also check out the latest updates on injuries and suspensions. and as you can see, Leicester will certainly be without Matty James and Nampalys Mendy, who are both injured. Shinji Okazaki and Caglar Soyuncu are both in doubt, due to fitness.

Wolves will be without Ivan Cavaleiro and Adam Traore. but will be able to field a strong team and certainly be competetive in this single Premier League Midland clash.

Referee,
Mike Dean will be in charge at King Power, hopefully getting all decisions correct.

Best Bet,
Our bold prediction is a 2-0 win to Leicester, but not certain at all.

Predicted Leicester City line-up,
System: 4-4-1-1, Schmeichel – Pereira, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell – Ndidi, Silva, Albrighton, Gray – Maddison – Vardy

Fun Fact,
Former manager Mark McGhee decided to leave Leicester City for Wolves, seeing them as a bigger club. Martin O’Neill came in, got City promoted, something McGhee never managed at Wolves.

In Both Camps,
If you look at the past, a number of players have been playing for both clubs, and one to mention is goalkeeper Karl Ikeme. Ikeme who has recently retired from the game due to health reasons. We wish him all the best.

Other players we remember are of course Ade Akinbiyi, Richard Stearman, Derek Dougan and Tim Flowers. Would also like to mention the classy winger John Farrington and Leicester City cult hero, Steve Claridge.

Mark McGhee and Brian Little are two that has been manager at both clubs, with Rob Kelly being in charge at Leicester and previously played for both clubs.

The big duel,
Nuno v Puel, really this is a game of managers getting things straight and get more points on board. Two former European top coaches at Porto and Lyon.
