Match Preview

In a repeat of their first home league fixture last season, Leicester City host Wolverhampton Wanderers in their Premier League (PL) opener. The ‘Foxes’ won that game 2-0 thanks to two first-half strikes, and also won their opening home league fixture in 2016/17 by the same scoreline.
However, their PL home record last term wasn’t great, both winning and losing 42.11% of their games. They did improve towards the back end of last season though, going unbeaten in five of their last six here (W4, D1, L1), and keeping a clean sheet in the last two against heavyweights Arsenal and Chelsea.
Wolves triumphantly returned to the top-tier last term, finishing in seventh and qualifying for the Europa League in the process. After that early defeat at Leicester last season, they went unbeaten in their next three away league fixtures, winning two of those games ‘to nil’.
However, Wolves finished the last league campaign by losing three of their final four away fixtures by a two-goal margin. Overall they conceded an average of only 1.32 goals per PL road trip, and witnessed both teams score in 57.89% of their away league games.
Players to watch: Jamie Vardy has been Leicester’s top scorer in the last four seasons. Six of his eight PL home goals during 2018/19 arrived from the 75th minute onwards.
Raúl Jiménez was Wolves’ top scorer last season. He netted five PL goals away from home, with Wolves unbeaten in those games (W3, D2).
Stat attack: There was over 2.5 goals in 47.37% of Leicester’s home league games last term.
Leicester are unbeaten in the last three H2Hs held here (W2, D1).
Of the PL goals Wolves scored away from home last season, 63.16% came in the second half.
