Wolves vs Leicester LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture today


Wolves welcome Leicester City to Molineux Stadium this afternoon as the visitors look to narrow the gap to the top of the Premier League table.

Leicester enter the fixture in third place in the top flight and can go level on 45 points with second Manchester United – who twice blew a lead to draw 3-3 with Everton last night – with a victory here. That would leave the Foxes two points behind Man City ahead of the leaders’ clash with Liverpool later today, though Pep Guardiola’s side will have a game in hand even after their fixture with the Reds.

Leicester overcame a stutter in form to defeat relegation-threatened Fulham 2-0 last time out, while Wolves ended a poor run by beating 10-man Arsenal 2-1 to position themselves 14th in the table. There is little room for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to climb up the table with three points here, but the Portuguese and his players would welcome such a result in order to establish some momentum following their win against the Gunners.
