Leicester News and Form
The Foxes took a top ten finish in the Premier League last season. It was a solid enough campaign from them and with the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, are looking forward. It’s a talented young squad that they have, can the manager get the best out of it? Leicester put up a home record of W8 D3 L8 so their output at the King Power can be improved upon.
They did lose just one of their final six home fixtures last season which included a draw against Chelsea and a win over Arsenal. The Foxes scored an average of 1.3 goals per game last term on home turf, taking a clean sheet in a third of matches. Six of their eight home wins were by a margin of at least two goals.
They have managed to keep Youri Tielemans permanently, which is a superb addition. Ayoze Perez has come over from Newcastle as well. They still have the running and goals of Jamie Vardy to rely on. After a good start was made by Rodgers when he joined up last season, it should be a good season ahead for the Foxes.

Wolves News and Form
Nuno Espirito-Santo guided Wolves to that tremendous seventh-place finish in the top flight last season, their first campaign back up in the top flight. There will be some big pressure on them to try and match that. The slightly strange thing about their season was they that they more than handled themselves against the top teams, but time and against failed to deliver away from home against teams in the bottom third.
Their overall away record was W6 D5 L8 and they averaged a goal per game out on the road. Just 37% of the away games that Wolves were involved in made it over 2.5 goals. In total, they grabbed a clean sheet in just 11% of their away fixtures. Wolves have had the benefit of some playing time because of their Europa League qualification campaign.
Will, that help them be ready for the start of the Premier League in what is a difficult away opener? The problem for Wolves is that they are no longer a surprise package and have to deal with the often difficult second-season syndrome. They have a pretty decent attack and they have added Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan to boost their output as well.

Who will win – Leicester v Wolves Predictions
This should be a good open game between two energetic sides. Wolves like to get on the front foot and will perhaps be dialled in thanks to their Europa League games. But Leicester at home shouldn’t be an easy proposition for the visitors to handle. The Foxes, with the King Power support, may be able to get their first points of the season on the board. Home win.
