Wolverhampton vs Leicester Prediction: EPL Match on 14.02.2020
The Premier League’s second week of fixtures during the winter break take place this weekend, and the match of the round will see two unlikely top four contenders going head to head in the West Midlands. Leicester are sitting pretty in the top four already, and Wolves will be hoping that they can join them with a strong end to the season.
Wolves have been going about their business in the Premier League quietly so far this season, but they sit just six points off the top four. Chelsea are currently the team that holds that spot, but their form has been inconsistent for weeks, which could open up the door for one of the challengers. However, Wolves have dropped down to eighth over recent weeks due to the fact that Everton and Sheffield United both recorded wins in their games.
Wolves could move back up to sixth with a win this weekend, but they will have to overcome their torrid recent run of form, which has seen them only win once in five. That win came against Southampton as they had to fight back from two goals down. However, since then, they have lost to Liverpool and drawn to Manchester United. This will be another big test.
Leicester meanwhile are looking like safe bets for a Champions League place this season. They are ten points above fifth-placed Sheffield United and hold an eight-point advantage over Chelsea. They can leapfrog Manchester City into second place with a win over Wolves this weekend.
However, their recent form means that there will be questions hanging over them. They have won just twice in their last five league games, while they also crashed out of the Carabao Cup during this period with a defeat to Aston Villa. The Foxes will be hoping to increase their gap over the fifth-placed team, but it may not be as plain sailing as they would have hoped.
Head To Head
Wolverhampton Wanderers hold a clear advantage between the sides in this fixture as they have won on 43 previous occasions. Leicester have won 38 times, and there have been 33 draws. The meeting between the two sides earlier in the season wasn’t one that lived long in the memory as they drew 0-0.
Wolves Team News
Adama Traore will be a doubt for the home side, while Ruben Vinagre will also be missing.
Leicester Team News
The Foxes will be without Wildred Ndidi and Ryan Bennett for their trip to Wolves. Meanwhile, Wes Morgan and Daniel Amartey are both doubts.
Wolves vs Leicester City Prediction
Despite the fact that these two sides drew 0-0 earlier in the season, this will still be an entertaining game. Last season’s fixture was a thrilling 4-3 win for Wolves. However, it is difficult to pick the winning side, but both teams will score in this game.
Tip: Both Teams To Score.
