Leicester v Wolves: match preview

There has been one goal in the past four meetings between Leicester and Wolves but Saturday’s encounter promises to be very different. Bruno Lage has been hired to turn Wolves into a vibrant attacking force and, with Leicester’s defence not at full strength, he will hope to start as he means to go on. But he may be concerned about his own defenders, too, as a lack of summer reinforcements raises questions about their ability to play the high-pressing style that Lage likes. Leicester are well equipped to profit from any transitional pains. Paul Doyle
