Leicester vs Wolves: Prediction
Rodgers’s men recorded a 1-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Leeds. In the meantime, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men registered a 2-0 win at home against Crystal Palace.
Going on, the Foxes are on a five-match winning run at the moment, which included European games as well, and had scored a total of 14 goals in the process.
At home, they had recorded a combined scorecard of 7-0 from the preceding two appearances, and in overall games in the league, only the Spurs have scored more goals than them.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in five of their preceding nine overall match-ups, and they remained so in four of their last six road trips.
In addition, Rodgers’s men had lost just once at home since 1989 against this rival, and they had kept clean sheets in 11 of the former 15 face-to-face games here.
Finally, with Liverpool set to drop points this weekend, it’s the best chance for the Foxes to take the top-most spot for themselves. Likely, count on them to deliver one of their best performances of the season this Sunday.
Leicester City vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
The Foxes are currently placed second in the table, trailing by just one point behind toppers Liverpool. And this weekend, the defending champions are pitted against title-contenders Manchester City.
This presents a great opportunity for Brendan Rodgers’s men to climb to the top of the table, as the Reds have the potential to make life tough for themselves and drop points.
Lately, the Foxes have been in phenomenal form, and they had even recently put down the hype surrounding Leeds and their chances of upsetting the existing hierarchy in the English top flight, with a clinical performance, and that too on the road.
Meanwhile, the Wanderers have had an inconsistent campaign so far, and most of their wins had come against teams that were recently promoted.
On top of that, they also have struggled against this opponent in h2h clashes in the past several years, and particularly so at this stadium.
