Wolves vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
Claude Puel is under pressure at Leicester City. This week the Frenchman and his team visit Wolverhampton, where manager Nuno Espírito Santo is not under pressure. As far as the fans of the Wolves are concerned, the Portuguese deserves a statue near the Molineux Stadium.
Wolverhampton is in eleventh place in the Premier League and the Wolves deserve nothing but praise for their performance this season. It is sometimes forgotten that Wolverhampton last season promoted from the Championship to the Premier League and that this is only the first season at the highest level for Wolverhampton. Years ago, Wolverhampton was a fixture in the Premier League, but in recent seasons that was another case. Of course, Wolverhampton received millions for promotion to the Premier League, but Fulham and Cardiff City also got that. Those two clubs are in relegation distress, while Wolverhampton even stood in the left row in recent weeks.
The last two duels is only slightly less with Nuno’s team. For example, Crystal Palace recently lost 0-2 in its own home, and last Monday, Wolverhampton went 3-0 to Manchester City. That is of course not a disaster for the Wolves, because in the Etihad Stadium several teams were killed this season. In addition, Wolverhampton played for over seventy minutes with ten men through a red card from Willy Boly. The only criticism at Wolverhampton in Manchester was that the Wolves never attacked the goal Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, and that can be blamed. Especially because Wolverhampton has some players with which it can counter. Wolves does not have much time to think about the defeat against Manchester City, because with Leicester City-home there is also a heavy duel on the program this weekend.
Leicester City has two points more than Wolverhampton, but where the Wolves is quiet, Leicester City is under pressure. That is pretty striking. Especially because Leicester City is just eighth in the Premier League and only one point less than Watford, the number seven of the Premier League. The Foxes are under pressure because the results in the last four games are very disappointing. In those four matches, only a good result was achieved at Everton (0-1), while the other three matches were lost for the men of Claude Puel. As if a 0-1 defeat was not enough, The Foxes also battled against Newport County and Southampton in recent weeks.
Leicester City was eliminated in the FA Cup by Newport County (2-1 loss). Last weekend, Leicester City also faced Southampton in its own King Power Stadium: 1-2. The Foxes played a whole half against ten Southampton-players, but did not manage to get a result against the number sixteen of the Premier League. Because of this defeat, the English media have already speculated about a resignation of Puel and the recruitment of Brendan Rodgers. The question is whether the coach of Celtic sees that and to what extent the rumors are based on truth. Moreover, Leicester City would be unworthy to put Puel on the street. Especially in view of the events in October, when club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in a helicopter accident. There both Puel and his players visibly suffered from it. If Wolverhampton wins this weekend, the storm will go down again. This way the football world is also back together.
