Full-time thoughts

As I wrote at half time, neither team especially deserved to win that. Leicester defended well and attacked deliberately, carefully and with intent. However, Wolves in the second half played with a great deal of intensity. While Leicester dominated most of the first half, Wolves showed a constant threat in the second half - it was only some good low-block defending and some incredible goalkeeping by Schmeichel that kept Leicester ahead, after going ahead through a very controversially awarded penalty.

The standout players today were Pedro Neto and Kasper Schmeichel - Neto was once again Wolves' hardest-working attacker, while Schmeichel did brilliantly to deny what could easily have been the equaliser from Neves. Honourable mentions go to James Justin, who played very well at wing-back, and Adama Traore, who instantly livened up Wolves' attack after coming on.

While Wolves are now 8th in the table, Leicester have gone top. All eyes will be on tonight's clash between Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad, as 4th-placed Liverpool will be able to overtake Leicester with a win.

47' LEI 1-0 WOL HALF TIME

Ait-Nouri to Podence on the left, Dendoncker to Ait-Nouri, cross to Neto, then to Jimenez who loses it.

After 2 minutes of stoppage time, the half finishes 1-0 to Leicester after a controversial penalty call. Wolves can have no complaints about the penalty conceded by Ait-Nouri (saved by Patricio), but the first penalty was less certain. Kilman's arm, while wide of his body, was in a natural position for sprinting balance, and there was little he could have done to move it out of the way of the cross. Further, Anthony Taylor was not shown the video replay at full speed, only the slow-motion version which makes all offences seem far worse than they actually are. Wolves played sluggishly and with a sense of injustice after the first penalty was scored, but were re-energised after Patricio saved the second. Leicester, credit to them, have dominated much of the game, crowding out the midfield to prevent the ball from reaching Wolves' forwards high up the pitch along the ground. Leicester have played better for longer, but neither side especially deserves to be ahead at this point.

What do Wolves need to improve on?

"All the things that all the managers want for their teams."

14:2717 days ago

Wolves balanced with width

Playing two attacking wing-backs against Crystal Palace gave Wolves the width and balance that they had lacked in many of the opening games of this season. Given the pace and attacking ability of both, it will not be surprising if Wolves attack in a 3-2-5, with the wing-backs playing as an outside-left and outside-right, the wingers coming in narrow to play as an inside-left and inside-right, and the central midfielders waiting just behind the front line.
14:1817 days ago

Evans back, Albrighton dropped, Rayan Ait-Nouri will have space to attack

After starting at right centre-back for Leicester against SC Braga on Thursday in the Europa League, James Justin moves wider to replace Marc Albrighton at right wing-back as Jonny Evans returns to Brendan Rodgers' side. With a natural defender instead of a natural winger playing at right wing-back today, Nuno's decision to play the more attacking Rayan Ait-Nouri instead of the more defensive Fernando Marcal at left wing-back seems very wise.
14:0617 days ago

Wolves formation

3-4-3: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Ait-Nouri; Podence, Jimenez, Neto.

Conor Coady praised by former coach Rodgers

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers had this to say about Conor Coady, who was developing at the Liverpool academy during Rodgers' stint at Anfield:

"I’m so pleased for Conor because he was a young player at Liverpool who had a fantastic attitude. Mike Marsh always spoke highly of Conor, and when he stepped up to train with us, he was excellent."

"He loves football, it’s his passion. He’s gone on to be a full international and I’m delighted for him."

Wolves: Team News

Wolves have far fewer injury problems than Leicester, with only left wing-back Jonny Castro Otto unavailable due to his long-term knee injury. However, he is recovering well and working hard in his rehabilitation programme, and should be able to play at some point around February.
16:5317 days ago

Leicester: Team News

Leicester's Jonny Evans is fit to play against Wolves, and while Caglar Soyuncu is still injured, he will not require surgery on his groin, meaning that he should be available next month as opposed to at some point in the new year.

Defenders Timothy Castagne and Ricardo Pereira are both still out with injuries (hamstring and knee respectively), but are expected back after the international break. Daniel Amartey (hamstring) is expected to be out for some time still.

Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi still has no concrete return date due to his hip injury.

16:4817 days ago

Wolves formidable in defence

Wolves may be a low-scoring team, but this is not a problem due to their strength in defence. Across four matches in October, the only goal Wolves conceded was a well-taken free kick by Jacob Murphy of Newcastle.

Foxes doing well in Europe

Leicester fans couldn't have asked for a more promising start to their club's UEFA Europa League campaign. They've won the first three of their six games in Group G, scoring nine, conceding only once, and seeing off Wolves' 2019/20 Group K rivals SC Braga 4-0 at home on Thursday.

Brendan Rogers' side will be brimming with confidence coming into this weekend's fixture.

Tight at the top

Both teams have started the season strongly, in what looks to be the most open Premier League campaign in years. At the time of writing (before Saturday 3pm kickoffs) Leicester are sat third in the table on 15 points, with Wolves in sixth only two points behind them. Depending on results elsewhere, a victory could carry either side to the top of the table.
