Leicester City vs Wolverhampton for the English Premier League championship match on Sunday at King Power Stadium.
This is going to be one of the most exciting games of the first weekend of the 2019-20 Premier League, which will take place at King Power Stadium this Sunday afternoon when Leicester City host Wolverhampton Wanderers. Both teams want to have a good season and will try to qualify for the European competitions this season.
Leicester lost Harry Maguire during the transfer market this summer, which was far from ideal for the team, but Leicester fans will be pleased with the arrival of Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez, Dennis Praet and James Justin.
Besides, the club managed to maintain the permanence of James Maddison and Ben Chilwell, essential players. The Foxes will try to fight for sixth place, now it remains to be seen if they can face the top six. Certainly, Brendan Rodgers will be pleased with the options he has in the squad for this 2019-20 season.
Leicester played six friendly games in the pre-season, winning five and drawing one. The Foxes are keen to get off to a good start, but it must be said that they have missed the opening match in the previous three seasons.
Rodgers’ team have a tight schedule this season if we consider that they will play Chelsea and Manchester United in the opening days. So a strong start will be essential to be able to stay in the top spot. Perez is expected to make his debut for Leicester, while Praet could also start in the early eleven.
The Wolves have played three official matches before the Premier League starts, and in fact, the team is behaving very well. The Wolves scored significant wins for the Europa League, eliminated the Crusaders and defeated Pyunik in qualifying. Raul Jimenez is in good form scoring two goals in the previous game, and it will be curious to see how many changes coach Nuno Espirito Santo makes to the trip to Leicester.
Nuno’s team took seventh place in the Premier League table last season, which was an excellent rating for a team that had been promoted to the top tier of English football.
The Wolves must be pleased with the definitive hiring of Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker, as they were on loan. Also came some players such as Pedro Neto, Patrick Cutrone and Jesus Vallejo, with Ruben Neves remaining in the club. Nuno is expected to keep almost the same team from the previous game.
As I mentioned, this weekend’s game should be one of the most interesting. Both teams will want to have a good season and end in the top six places. I think W
