Tip Reasoning

  • Wolves scored just 36 goals in the Premier League last season.
  • Leicester started last season with three consecutive wins, scoring 12 goals in the process.
  • Harvey Barnes had scored in three of his last five league appearances before his injury in February.

Foxes continue to build after impressive season

An 89th minute penalty from Kelechi Iheanacho was enough to earn Leicester the right to lift the first piece of silverware this season as they beat Manchester City in the Community Shield and that victory shows just how seriously this Foxes outfit should be taken.

For the second season running they came within a whisker of a top four finish before falling at the final hurdle but their FA Cup win made for another historic season and their summer business suggests they mean to carry on building on their recent successes.

Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare are two excellent young additions to the squad and Jannik Vestergaard is on the verge of moving to the King Power Stadium to provide cover after Wesley Fofana’s leg break in pre-season.

Wolves on the defensive after Santo departure

There is less hope for Wolves, though. The popular Nuno Espirito Santo left the club at the end of last season and his successor, Bruno Lage, isn’t exactly proven at the top level.

Signs of their decline were evident last season as they finished 13th in the table and scored just 36 goals all season. Of course, the skull fracture suffered by Raul Jimenez certainly didn’t help matters and while the Mexican is back to full fitness now there is no telling how such a serious injury could effect him.

Leicester set for winning start

Brendan Rodgers’ side started last season incredibly brightly with three consecutive wins, scoring 12 goals in that period and even putting five past Manchester City. I’m expecting another strong start for the top four hopefuls and with Wolves losing their last three league games a home win offers good value, along with a 2-0 win owing to the visitors’ torrid attacking record.

Harvey Barnes is worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market, too. His season was ended by injury in February but prior to that the 23-year-old was showing remarkable form. Prior to that injury he had scored in three of his last five league games and he looked lively against Manchester City last weekend. I expect him to impress this season.

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel / Pereira, Amartey, Soyuncu, Bertrand / Ndidi, Tielemans / Perez, Maddison, Barnes / Vardy

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa / Saiss, Coady, Kilman / Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal / Traore, Trincao, Jimenez

  • Leicester have lost only one of their last six Premier League meetings with these opponents
