Having turned themselves into Premier League regulars once more, both Wolves and Leicester are in the early relegation zone and will be hoping to avoid a fight for survival in 2023. Wolves slipped into the relegation zone in midweek after their defeat to Crystal Palace, combined with Southampton beating Bournemouth.
The Midlands side are still without a permanent manager following the departure of Bruno Lage and recently revealed that interim boss Steve Davis would remain in charge until 2023. The 57-year-old has overseen three matches as caretaker and sealed a big win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, having lost his opener vs Chelsea. But Wolves were unable to build on that victory, losing 2-1 to Crystal Palace in midweek despite going in at half-time ahead.
One place and one point below Wolves are Leicester, who went winless in their first seven games of the season before beating Nottingham Forest earlier this month. The Foxes were unable to immediately build on that victory, falling to Bournemouth in their very next match, but Brendan Rodgers side will be hoping their latest run can build momentum.
Having drawn with Crystal Palace at the weekend, Leicester may have fallen to the bottom of the tale, but it gave them a platform on which to build and they did exactly that. On Thursday night, Leicester were comfortable winners over Leeds to leapfrog Forest and move within a point of escaping the relegation zone. While it will require other results to go their way, Leicester could be out of the relegation zone this weekend – but Wolves will be looking to do the same.

Wolves vs Leicester match stats
Wolves’ striker problems are clear for everyone to see and a big problem is that they don’t have anyone else picking up the slack. With just five goals scored in 11 games, Wolves have the worst attack in the Premier League this season but their defence at home has been fantastic with just four conceded at Molineux.
Combined with Wolves’ defence at home, Leicester have not been happy travellers in the Premier League this season. The Foxes have lost all five of their Premier League away games so far, and will be looking to avoid a sixth-straight away defeat in the top flight having only previous done so once, in 1957/58.
