Wolves and Leicester City meet at the Molineux for an all-Midlands affair that could significantly change the complexion of both club’s respective seasons. Brendan Rodgers could do with a win just to take the pressure off his shoulders, while Bruno Lage needs three points to keep up his side’s pursuit of a European place.

Wolves currently sit seventh in the Premier League table, which could be enough to get them into next season’s Europa Conference League depending on how the FA Cup transpires, but Lage will not want to rely on external forces so is undoubtedly eyeing up a push for the top six — they are currently two points below sixth-placed Arsenal, though they have played a game more.

The Foxes meanwhile are uncharacteristically in the bottom half of the table, though they do have two games in hand on 10th-placed Southampton. Rodgers may take some solace from that, but he knows his side still have to pick up points in those games, or they will struggle to salvage their season and push for the upper reaches of the table.

Wolves vs Leicester: Match Stats

Not the most free-scoring of fixtures in Premier League history, this contest is likely to be a battle of patience, with both clubs probing and digging in deep. Wilfred Ndidi and Nelson Semedo are likely to be busy crunching into challenges as both teams ask questions, with the former registering more tackles than any other player for Leicester this season (50), while the latter boasts the most for Wolves (46).

As mentioned, this has not been a particularly high-scoring fixture in recent seasons. In fact, there has been a goal or less in the last five games, including this season’s 1-0 in favour of Leicester as well as three 0-0s in that time. There have also been under 2.5 goals in this fixture across seven of the previous eight matches in all competitions.
