Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers have a Valentine’s night date with each other as the two Midlands clubs will clash at the Molineux Stadium on Friday. It’s the first match of the next weekend of PL action as the league resumes action after a brief winter break.
The last two meetings between the two sides could not have been any more different in terms of style points. They played to a goalless draw at the King Power Stadium in the reverse fixture earlier this season. In the last meeting before that, seven goals were scored as ?Wolves beat the Foxes a 4-3. So what kind of pace and result will we see this time?
Well, Leicester are third in the table, as well as third in goals scored, goal differential and fewest goals conceded. We’ll see if Brendan Rodgers can impose his team’s will on ninth place Wolves in this game or not. In the meantime, here’s our two starting XI predictions:
Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Tielemans, Ndidi; Barnes, Maddison, Perez; Vardy
Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Adama, Jimenez, Jota
