Leicester vs Wolves: Prediction
These are two similarly matched sides and regardless of the outcome, will make for an entertaining game of football. There isn’t much between the clubs, on and off the pitch, with a mere two points dividing them, with Leicester on 15 and Wolves on 13 although it will be a fascinating match-up stylistically. Both teams have only lost two games this season, and this could remain the case come Sunday with a draw and both teams to score appealing.
