Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City meet this weekend at The Molineux Stadium for the twenty-sixth match of the Premier League season. Wolverhampton Wanderers are ninth in the league with 35 points having won 8 games, drawn 11 and lost 6. Leicester City are third in the league with 49 points having won 15 games, drawn 4 and lost 6.
Both teams have produced very mixed results in recent weeks. Wolves drew their last game 0 – 0 with Manchester United and before that, they lost 1 – 2 to Liverpool. However, prior to that, they defeated Southampton 3 – 2, lost 1 – 0 to Manchester United and drew 1 – 1 with Newcastle United. Leicester City drew their last game 2 – 2 with Chelsea and before that lost 2 – 1 to Aston Villa. Prior to that they defeated Brentford 0 – 1, West Ham 4 – 1 and lost 2 – 1 to Burnley.
The teams have not played each other very regularly, just four times since 2013. Wolverhampton lost the two games in 2018; last year they won one and the other ended in a draw. This has the potential to be a hard fought and exciting match, and the result could be very close.
