Leicester City

Last updated: Sun 11 August 2019 08:01
In Brief

Added quality to squad in summer and ambitions very high in first full season under Rodgers. Mendy doubtful, but no major absentees.

Looking Back

Leicester spent big on Tielemans and Perez in summer, with both of them expected to play key roles this season.

In his first summer with club coach Rodgers selected mostly weak opponents for 6 friendlies, but still 5 wins and draw impressive results.

Looking Ahead

Coach Rodgers likely to select 4-3-3 formation for this first game with Perez utilised on the right wing and Albrighton emerging as regular starter down the other side during pre-season.

Mendy missed several months injured and despite back in training he might not be rushed back.

Points of Interest

Sides exchanged home wins in league last season. Also Leicester won penalty shootout after 0:0 draw in League Cup.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Last updated: Sun 11 August 2019 08:02
In Brief

Cruised to big win in Armenia on Thursday, but long round trip could have effect on freshness. Have edge in terms of match sharpness. Gibbs-White only doubtful player.

Looking Back

Wolves were 4:0 winners on visit to Pyunik on Thursday, with this already third Europa League qualifying match for Santo’s men, giving them slight advantage in terms of match sharpness.

Tiredness could be issue though after 6,000 mile round trip to Armenia.

Had solid pre-season and also didn’t lose any important players this summer. In fact if anything squad stronger.

Looking Ahead

Coach Santo will likely check on the condition of everyone that was involved on Thursday before deciding on selection, but at least both Doherty and Jimenez overcame knocks and are available for selection.

Gibbs-White missed game in Armenia due to knock, but he doesn't seem to be seriously hurt.
