Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leicester City EPL betting preview

Leicester City will be on the road against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend, with the Valentine’s Day encounter between the two sides set to usher in the final third of the 2019/20 English Premier League campaign.

The Foxes, who went into the winter break with a 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium, could leapfrog second-placed Manchester City with a win, as the Citizens are scheduled to welcome West Ham United to the Etihad next Wednesday.

Leicester will be eager to return to winning ways after their chase for silverware collapsed when they were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Aston Villa towards the tail end of January.

The motives of Nuno Espírito Santo won’t be any less than those of his visiting counterpart this Friday.

Although Wolves had to settle for a goalless draw on their trip to Old Trafford right before the winter break, they stretched their impressive unbeaten run in the Premier League against Manchester United to four games.

Nonetheless, that doesn’t conceal the fact that Wolverhampton have won only one of their last six games in the EPL to plunge down the table to ninth on 35 points – 14 points behind Leicester City in third and a whopping 38 points behind leaders Liverpool.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

Adama Traore dislocated his shoulder in the FA Cup third-round replay against Manchester United, but the forward is back in the reckoning having passed a late fitness test at Compton Park.

Wolves will, however, miss the services of wing-back Ruben Vinagre, who sustained a hamstring injury in the same game.

Leicester City team news

Ryan Bennett is ineligible to play against his parent club, having joined Leicester on loan from the Molineux in the January transfer window.

The Foxes could welcome back Wilfred Ndidi, with the defensive midfielder seemingly recuperated from a knee injury suffered in training last month.

Midfielder Nampalys Mendy will miss the tie due to a knee injury sustained last month in the win over West Ham, while Daniel Amartey continues with his prolonged spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his ankle.

Harvey Barnes to score/Leicester City to win

+750

Harvey Barnes has turned out to be an unlikely hero for Leicester City over the last couple of matches.

Although striker Jamie Vardy is still the leading scorer in the Premier League on 17 goals, the former England international has recently struggled to find the back of the net.

The blip has, however, allowed Barnes to step up to the plate, with the young winger finding the back of the net in three of his last four Premier League outings.

Friday’s clash will provide an excellent opportunity for Barnes to impress England manager Gareth Southgate, who will be at the Molineux on Friday night as he intensifies his quest to replace the injured trio of Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling ahead of next month’s friendlies against Italy and Denmark.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leicester City betting predictions

Although nowhere near the title race, Leicester will want to lock down a UEFA Champions League place as soon as possible.

Wolves, on the other hand, need just one win to elevate themselves back into a European qualification spots.

Given that Nuno has not lost any of his last four home games against Leicester, this match looks poised to end in a stalemate.
