Leicester City Form & Team News
Leicester City have been revitalised since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers back in February, and the former Premier League champions will have a top seven, if not six, finish in their crosshairs this campaign.
The late loss of Harry Maguire to Manchester United will be a blow for The Foxes but in Caglar Soyuncu and Johnny Evans, they should have enough cover at the back. As usual, Jamie Vardy is expected to lead the line for the team, with summer signing Ayoze Perez also likely to get a first Premier League start for the club.
Leicester have remained unbeaten all pre-season, with notable victories for the team coming against Atalanta and Stoke City. While it is important not to read into pre-season results too much, the team have been very impressive on the pitch.

The last of their games was on Thursday night when they beat Armenian side, Pyunik 4-0 in an impressive performance. Raul Jimenez grabbed himself a brace that night and he is likely to lead the front line for Wolves again on Sunday.
The West Midlands-based side have been very impressive so far in pre-season. Winning all five of their games, including four Europa League victories. The club has only conceded 1 goal in those 5 games, and have scored a very impressive 14.
Nuno didn’t start key players Jonny and Ruben Neves on Thursday, but the pair are expected to make a return to the starting 11 against Leicester. There are no injury concerns for Wolves, but they made consider resting some players following an intense pre-season.
