Correct score Leicester 1-0 Wolves 6/1
First Goalscorer Jamie Vardy 21/5

Last season, for the second year running, Leicester missed out on a top four finish and subsequently the Champions League as a result of a poor end to the campaign when they had previously looked to have things under control. But this time, Leicester made up for that failure by winning the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history, beating Chelsea 1-0 in the final. That scoreline was repeated in the Community Shield, this time against Manchester City, as Leicester won the 2021/22 season’s curtain-raiser, excellent preparation for the new Premier League campaign and their quest to finally return to the Champions League.

Standing in the way of their positive start will be a Wolves still who will be looking to begin life post-Nuno Espirito Santo in the best possible way. The Portuguese manager left Wolves at the end of last season, eventually joining Tottenham Hotspur, and has been replaced by former Benfica boss Bruno Lage, ending his one-year spell without a job. Wolves have been busy in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Jose Sa and Francisco Trincao (the latter on loan) to help for a better finish in the Premier League this season.

Leicester vs Wolves: Match Stats

Kelechi Iheanacho was the star for Leicester towards the end of the 2020/21 season and also scored the only goal in the Community Shield, but the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign is Jamie Vardy’s time. The Leicester striker has scored six goals in six Premier League appearances in their opening match of the season, the joint-most of any current player in the division.

Leicester vs Wolves hasn’t been one for the neutrals over the past two seasons, with just one goal being scored in the four league meetings since the start of 2019/20 (three goalless draws and a 1-0 Leicester win).

Leicester were the last team to win in this fixture, with Jamie Vardy scoring the only goal from the penalty spot at the King Power last season, but supporters going to the stadium will be dreaming of a repeat of the 4-3 thriller back in January 2019.
