Wolverhampton vs Leicester City Preview

The irony about the Wolves this season is that while on hand they punched far above their weight in holding top-tier teams like Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United to draws and even beating Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, they seriously bungled against bottom-half teams like Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Brighton & Hove on the other.

Their last defeat, though, was to Manchester City 0-3 in a match where they could have come out much better off were it not for their own undoing.

Coach Nuno Espirito Santo's side were reduced to 10 men early in the 19th minute, conceded a needless penalty in the 39th and scored a own-goal with just 12 minutes of play to go.

Wolverhampton now host Leicester City at the Molineux Stadium in a return Premier League fixture on Saturday hoping to avenge a 0-2 loss away at the King Power stadium earlier in the season.

The Wolves have been on the defensive in both their previous 2 games what with their attack comprising of Jimenez, Ivan Cavaleiro, Helder Costa and Jota showing little imagination or initiative, taking in as many as five goals against none scored from those couple of outings.

Nuno Santo has kept switching formations from 3-4-3 to 3-5-2 to no avail. Excepting for a flash in the pan in the form of a shock defeat of 1 -3 meted out to Tottenham, the Wolves have lost 3 of their last 5 fixtures and drawn in one, slipping to the 11th spot on the Premier League from a respectable 7th a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile, Leicester City seemed to have gone through a phase not very dissimilar to their Saturday opponents. After giant-killings of Chelsea and Manchester City in late-December, Claude Peul's Foxes meekly succumbed to lower bottom-half sides Cardiff City and Southampton in rapid succession during the New Year.

To pour salt on their wounds was a FA Cup defeat to League Two side Newport County last weekend.

The Foxes continued in similar vein in their 1-2 home defeat to Southampton, putting on a timid display and not being able to make any inroads into the Saints' defense despite an overwhelming 72 per cent possession.

For January 19th's Molineux game, Puel will probably maintain the 4-3-3 formation he has been doing all along with probably Demarai Gray replacing Marc Albrighton in the front three that has James Maddison and Jamie Vardy in it.

Albrighton may move behind the three and replace a ineffective Nampalys Mendy in the mid-field space. The defensive quartet still looks solid and have creativity in the likes of Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira.

For the Foxes, a major boost going into Saturday's clash will be the absence of Wolves defender Willy Boly, red-carded in the game against City. Boly who had played every minute of Wolves' Premier League campaign up until his red card, was a mainstay in the defense and responsible for quite a few of the team's successes this season.

Leicester City seem to have come out on top in the few occasions these two have met in the past seven years. The Foxes have won three of the four encounters and lost in one.

As for Saturday's clash at the Molineux, odds are on the hosts to prevail over the visiting Foxes.

Bookmakers have factored in the Wolves' superlative show against top-half teams while assigning the odds. But given their inconsistency this season, it could be anybody's game.

Leicester City and Wolverhampton are on the 8th and 11th spots on the EPL table with just 2 points separating them.
