STREAM LEICESTER - WOLVES LIVE

After beating Manchester City to win the Community Shield last weekend, Leicester will be full of confidence. The Foxes have recruited well this summer with Ryan Bertand, Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare coming in, and Brendan Rodgers is aiming to keep pushing for a top four finish after two-straight seasons of finishing fifth.

As for Wolves, new manager Bruno Lage has Raul Jimenez back fit and their attacking unit will be built around the Mexico star. It will certainly be interesting to see how Wolves fare without long-time manager Nuno Espirito Santo as they have the playing squad to push for a top six finish. But it all depends on if Jimenez hits the ground running after his long-awaited return from a skull fracture.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leicester - Wolves.

Team news

Leicester City have quite a few injury issues as Jonny Evans remains out at center back, while Wesely Fofana suffered a leg fracture in preseason. The arrival of Jannik Vestergaard will help Leicester in that regard. Timothy Castagne could return this weekend but Evans will be out until early September.

Wolves are struggling with defensive injuries as Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera are battling for fitness. Trincao is one to look out for as the exciting winger, a Barcelona loanee, could make his Wolves and Premier League debut.
