Leicester vs Wolves
Venue: King Power Stadium
Jamie Vardy looks set for his first start of the season when Leicester host Wolves in the Premier League this afternoon.
The striker was only named on the bench for the Foxes’ opening game against Manchester United after featuring for England at the World Cup.
However, Vardy scored a consolation goal in the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford and is now expected to start against Wolves.
“Jamie is training well this week with his team-mates and he is available,” said Foxes manager Claude Puel. “He has a good chance to start.”
Leicester’s defeat at Manchester United means they have taken just four points from the last 24 available in the Premier League.
That has seen Puel installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to become the first Premier League manager to be sacked but the Frenchman said: “It’s just speculation…I can’t comment on speculation. I don’t bet and I don’t do the lottery – it’s not my way.
“My job is to build something with Leicester; to continue to develop this club, to develop the players and the squad. After this, if people are angry or not satisfied, that is my concern.”
Newly-promoted Wolves started their season with a 2-2 home draw against Everton.
Leicester will be without Matty James and Shinji Okazaki as neither are deemed to be match fit.
Wolves could hand a debut to club-record signing Adama Traore.
The former Middlesbrough winger came in on the eve of the transfer deadline and did not feature in the 2-2 draw with Everton last weekend.
Leicester possible XI: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Maguire, Amartey, Gray, Maddison, Pereira, Silva, Ndidi, Vardy.
Wolves possible XI: Patricio, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Doherty, Neves, Jota, Jonny, Moutinho, Traore, Jimenez.
