The Foxes kick-off the new season last Friday with a 1-2 defeat to Manchester United.

Claude Puel will consider himself unlucky not to have taken something from Old Trafford after watching his team dominate the possession and create better chances of the match.

At the same time, Wolves announced their return to Premier League after a six year absence with a thrilling draw against Everton.

Nuno Espírito Santo saw his team going behind twice and their fighting spirit and character that helped the team claw back on both occasions.

However, they did have a man advantage after Phil Jagielka was sent off just before half time when they were trailing 0-1.

Leicester City vs Wolves Prediction

Judging by their performances on opening match week, we must expected a tightly contested battle at the King Power Stadium this midweek.

Both teams like to play attacking football which automatically opens up a few holes at the back. So, I consider btts as the top pick for this Premier League fixture.

At the same time, a better conversion rate on goal could see the full-time result going in favor of the hosts, which makes a strong case for backing the ft correct score 2-1 for the Claude Puel’s men.
