Is Wolves vs Leicester on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture


Leicester City will look to keep their charge at the top end of the Premier League table going on Sunday when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Foxes beat Fulham in midweek to solidify their hold on third place in the table, after back-to-back matches which they failed to win beforehand.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have had to contend with a few injuries to key players of late, including star striker Jamie Vardy – but his manager has said he could be back involved here after his recent operation. In the absence of last season’s top scorer, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ayoze Perez have been leading the line for Leicester, with the former hoping to stay in the starting line-up this time out.

Last season it was the latter part of the campaign when Leicester fell off and lost their top-four spot, so they’ll be anxious to ensure they retain more consistency this time around.

Prediction

Wolves took three points against the Gunners but were even uncertain with two extra players. An in-form Leicester are a difficult prospect to face and with the extra attacking options they have, an away win is on the cards once more. Wolves 1-2 Leicester.
