Wolves celebrate 2018-19
Both sides aim to bounce back from defeats when they meet in the Premier League

Claude Puel's Leicester City head to Molineux for their Premier League clash with Wolves on Saturday.

Both sides come into the game on the back of defeats, the East Midlands side having lost to Manchester City on Monday and Leicester suffering a 2-1 defeat away to Southampton last weekend.

The sides have already met twice this season and City came out winners both times, first when they took a 2-0 Premier League victory at the King Power Stadium and then again in the third round of the Carabao Cup in September, although penalties were needed on that occasion.

Squads & Team News


Position Wolves squad
Goalkeepers Patricio, Ruddy
Defenders Boly, Coady, Bennett, Castro, Vinagre, Doherty, Iorfa
Midfielders Neves, Dendoncker, Saiss, Moutinho, Gibbs-White, Jota, Traore, Costa, Cavaleiro
Forwards Jimenez, Bonatini, Mason

Wolves are without Willy Boly after the defender was shown a straight red card for a lunging tackle on Bernardo Silva at the Etihad Stadium.

Nuno Espirito Santo has no fresh injury concerns, although regular Matt Doherty misses out on a place in the starting XI.

Wolves starting XI:  Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Saiss; Otto, Vinagre; Neves, Dendoncker; Moutinho; Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota.

Subs: Ruddy, Doherty, Cavaleiro, Costa, Gibbs-White, Giles, Adama.

Position Leicester players
Goalkeepers Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic
Defenders Simpson, Chilwell, Soyuncu, Morgan, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Fuchs, Benalouane, Knight
Midfielders Gray, Maddison, Albrighton, Amartey, Iborra, James, Silva, Mendy, Ndidi, Ghezzal, King, Choudhury, Barnes
Forwards Iheanacho, Vardy, Okazaki, Diabate

Jonny Evans is only fit enough for a place on the bench, so the centre-back pairing of Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire continue.

Harvey Barnes, who was recently recalled from a loan spell with West Brom and featured as a substitute against Southampton last time out, also starts as Claude Puel makes three changes.

Leicester starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell; Ndidi, Mendy; Ricardo, Barnes, Gray; Vardy.

Subs: Evans, Iheanacho, Maddison, Albrighton, Ward, Fuchs, Choudhury.

Match Preview


Wolves see this home clash as an opportunity to quickly bounce back from their disappointing evening at Man City last week.

It was a strange game in front of a small and subdued crowd at the Etihad, and Gabriel Jesus' 10th minute goal coupled with Boly's dismissal nine minutes later virtually guaranteed victory for the champions. 

Speaking after the match, Santo said: "It was a very tough night. When we conceded the goal the game became very difficult, the red card and all these things.

"There was a moment where we tried but it became very hard. Playing against 11 is tough, with a man less it's harder."

Leicester meanwhile are in desperate need of a win with their manager Puel under mounting pressure after losing in the FA Cup to Newport County and then sustaining another defeat at Southampton last time out.

That run has left the Frenchman as one of the favourites to be the next Premier League boss to receive the sack, and a third successive defeat could seal his fate.

After the Southampton defeat, Puel said: "We wanted to perform, we wanted to have a reaction and our concentration was perhaps too much. It was a difficult scenario.

"We didn't manage the first half well. It would have been good to have come back without the second goal but it was harsh and it was a bad moment.

"We played with desire and intensity in the second half but we didn't perform enough."
