Leicester City will face Wolverhampton Wanderers at home in the first round of the 2021-2022 EPL season on August 14.
Leicester City’s performance has been relatively stable in recent seasons. The team finished last season in 5th place in the league, just one point away from the Champions League, and gained a ticket to the UEFA Europa League group stage.
It is worth noting that the Blue Foxes were the 3rd highest scoring team in the EPL last season. This is inseparable from the goals scored by core striker Vardy, who ranked 7th in the league’s top scorers with 15 goals last season.
Leicester City also strengthened their squad during the summer window, bringing in striker Daka, midfielder Somal and defender Bertrand, and the team’s current strength has improved.
The team played 4 warm-up matches before the season and got 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss, which is not ideal.
The team played against Blue Moon Manchester City in a Community Shield match. The team was at a disadvantage on the field, with 43% of possession.
But towards the end of the game, Iheanacho scored a goal and finally won 1-0 against the opponent, successfully bringing home the Community Shield trophy.
The morale of the team is good at present.
Wolves have played the role of “dark horse” for most of the time since they returned to the EPL in 2018.
However, last season, with the departure of many key players, the team’s strength declined significantly and finished 13th in the league last season.
The new season is a big change for Wolves, with former manager Nuno joining Tottenham Hotspur, Venegre, Patricio, Campana etc. leaving the team and bringing in Mosquera, Trincón, Aetnauri etc.
Wolves played 6 warm-up matches before the season and got 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses. The practice effect is not good, among which the defeats to the lower level teams Stoke City and Crewe are still a bit puzzling.
In the latest match against La Liga team Celta, the manager adjusted the 2 lines of forwards and defenders. However, it was still not satisfactory, and the possession rate was only 47%, and gave away a penalty chance to the opponent in the first half.
The Foxes have not lost in their last four league meetings with Wolves and outperformed them by a wide margin last season. Back Leicester to win this match.
