Date: 14.08.21, Venue: King Power Stadium, Match: Premier League
Leicester are up against Wolves in the first game of the season. Everything else than a win, will be a big dissapoitmant, but to underestimate Wolves might be very folish as they have a number of quality players that can win football games on their own.
The set up at Wolves will be interesting to look at as they could come to King Power in a 3-4-3 formation according to their best predictors.

TCF Prediction: 3-0 – Win
Looking back at prevous meetings between the two clubs one that comes to mind is the 2018 clash at King Power stadium, and own goal from Doherty and that flashing goal from James Maddison, just as brilliant as you could just dream of. Jamie Vardy being sent off and still able to win the game.
Another clash with a good memory from was that magnificant 5-1 win in 1983, Alan Smith scored a hat trick, Gary Lineker and Steve Lynex scoring the other two. Leicester were on a good strike, after struggling heavily in the start of their return to the top flght under Gordon Milne.
Wolves fans might have had other ideas of good memories and would probably reflect on their 5-0 win back in 1990, with goals from Steve Bull and Robbie Dennison. Bull with a hat-trick and Dennison with the other two.
Looking at old football pictures is always a thrill and going back to 1983 we will find one few might remember, Tommy English and Mick Matthews in a duel from a game that Leicester in the end won 5-0. This is a picture from the game earlier highlighted above. The two players did both appear. Tommy English played at Leicester from 1982 to 1984, scored 3 goals in 44 games before making a new move to Rochdale. He arrived from Coventry as a exchange deal seeing Jim Melrose going the oppsite way. Mick Matthews was a midfielder at Wolves playing from 1980 to 1984 before making a move to Scunthorpe.Embed from Getty Images
