The Citizens have collected six points from their first three matches to sit seventh in the table, while Leicester have also picked up six points to occupy ninth after three rounds of fixtures in England’s top flight.

While Brendan Rodgers is gearing up for his third full season in charge of the Foxes, a new name will aim to restore Wolves back to their short-lived European days.

The Nigerian striker opened the scoring for the hosts midway through the first half, as he netted his sixth goal in his last four matches with the simplest of finishes.

The two clubs are both pushing for a top-four finish in the Premier League, but will be viewing the FA Cup as a very realistic route to silverware alongside their impressive top-flight exploits.

Rodgers selected Iheanacho for a fourth straight Premier League game, the striker’s longest run in the team since 2018, and he took his tally to five goals in three games with a brilliant treble against bottom side Sheffield United.

The Foxes returned to winning ways last time out and are five points clear of fifth, while United are destined for relegation and are on the verge of sacking manager Chris Wilder.

Leicester are currently third in the Premier League table, level on points with second-placed Manchester United, while Arsenal sit down in 11th spot, 11 points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

Leading 1-0 through Mohamed Salah’s league-high 17th goal of the season, Liverpool was pegged back in the 78th when James Maddison’s low free kick crept in and then went behind after another blunder by goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Three points separate the two sides in the table after 23 games, and the visitors are looking to bounce back from successive league defeats for the first time under Jurgen Klopp.

Leicester have picked up 27 points from their 14 league games this season to sit second in the table, one point ahead of third-placed United, who have a game in hand over the Foxes and indeed leaders Liverpool.

Having had to cope with injuries and a hectic schedule since the beginning of the season, it was no surprise that Leicester’s standards dropped immediately after the November international break.
