Leicester vs Wolves

Leicester City are set to get their 2021/22 Premier League campaign underway very shortly.

The Foxes’ first outing of the season sees them pitted against a new-look Wolves side.

Bruno Lage is now at the helm after Nuno Espirito Santo departed the club earlier this year.

Wolves should prove a stern test for the Foxes, who head into this match fresh off the back of their Community Shield win over Manchester City last weekend.

Leicester have now won two trophies under Brendan Rodgers, clinching the FA Cup back in May, and will no doubt be keen to get their league campaign off to a good start and finally earn Champions League football under Brendan Rodgers.

An explanation has, however, since been provided for the full-back’s omission, with it confirmed that he has tested positive for Covid-19:
