💧Wolves v Foxes💧[LIVE]

Match day y’all !

Live @ http://www.ja606.co.uk/articles/viewLiveArticle/402213
One match ban enabled


Wolves' Premier League ever-present Willy Boly starts a three-match ban as a result of his sending off against Manchester City.

Leander Dendoncker is expected to drop back into defence to replace Boly, with Romain Saiss coming into midfield.

Leicester are boosted by the return of Jonny Evans, who has recovered from a broken toe quicker than anticipated.

Versatile Ghanaian Daniel Amartey, who has a broken ankle, is the only absentee for Claude Puel's side.

MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

@SimonBrotherton: This is just the sort of match Wolves have slipped up in recently despite their solid return to the top flight.

They've lost five of their last seven at home in the league and face a Leicester team that are not only looking for a third straight away league victory but also a third triumph over Wolves this season.

Nonetheless, back-to-back home defeats by Cardiff and Southampton and an FA Cup exit at the hands of Newport County have rather taken the shine off Leicester's impressive Christmastime victories over Chelsea and Manchester City.

So Claude Puel is currently finding that, just as when he was at Southampton, eighth place in the table doesn't in itself keep everyone happy.

VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo: "I think it's part of history what Leicester achieved before. It's also part of history with the sad moment that, where all of sport, especially in Leicester, suffered with the death of their former owner.

"I have total admiration for them, but tomorrow my focus is to compete and try to help my players to do their best."

Leicester City manager Claude Puel on continued speculation regarding his future: "When we have a bad result it's normal to have feelings about me because I'm responsible for the team.

"I work with my players and I try to give them a positive attitude to start their game with the right intensity, and it's my work to find the solution.

"I accept some disapproval and people protesting, because it's my work. If we manage our games, people will be happy."

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

This will be the third meeting between the clubs this season: Leicester won August's reverse league fixture 2-0 and beat Wolves 3-1 on penalties at Molineux in the Carabao Cup in September.
Wolves are winless in three games against the Foxes since a 2-1 home Championship victory in September 2012.
Wolves recovered from trailing 3-0 at half-time to win 4-3 in their only previous Premier League home match against Leicester, in October 2003.
Leicester have won one and lost five of their last eight top-flight away fixtures against Wolves.
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves have lost five of their past seven home league games. They had previously been beaten only twice in their first 27 league fixtures at Molineux under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Santo's side have kept only one clean sheet in their past 14 Premier League games.
They have scored five first-half goals, the fewest in the division.
Ten off the last 16 Premier League goals conceded by Wolves have been via set pieces: four corners, four free-kicks and two penalties.
Wolves have used a league-low 18 players.
Leicester City

Leicester have lost three of their last four matches in all competitions.
However, they have recorded back-to-back 1-0 away wins and could win three successive away league games for the first time since April 2016.
Claude Puel's side have scored in 18 of their league games, the most outside of the current top six clubs.
They have conceded the opening goal on 14 occasions, which is second only to Cardiff's tally of 15.
Leicester's last six away games have produced just eight goals in total, with no side scoring more than once.
Games involving Leicester have produced a league-high nine red cards, four to the Foxes and five to opposition players.

No one is say our defense is 'calamitous'.

What posters are saying is that yesterday was not a good day for our defense and I totally agree with what's been said.

Vinagre and Saiss is not a very good pairing on the left and that was evident yesterday.

Just seen a Twitter post from Laurie Dalrymple with the Fosun chairman, both celebrating the win out in China. Happy times are ahead.

Saw that photo and Dalrymple moaning that yesterday’s great game was the first one he has missed this season. They are working hard on promoting the club in China and I noticed recently they advertised a vacancy for a job managing their social media postings in China

Don’t know if anyone is watching the Man City game but the tackle that earned Kyle Walker a yellow card was surely no more reckless than the one that got Boly a red

Also as far as inconsistencies go, Nuno got a red for celebrating the winning goal on the pitch yesterday, but Klopp didn’t when he did the same in the Merseyside derby

I suspect the ref was spoken to following his leniency with Klopp. In the City game they’ve missed a blatant penalty.

Boly's has worked out well. He only misses 2 league games, one of which we've won, the other (West Ham at home) is just as winnable. He also gets a rest which might do him good

I see doesn't copy and paste from my reply to the Neves article, why's that>
