Leicester handed injury boost ahead of Wolves clash

Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Leicester City at Molineux today in what promises to be a six-pointer, with both sides currently occupying a spot in the Premier League relegation places.

Steve Davis was confirmed as Wolves’ interim boss until 2023 recently after the club failed with a number of manager approaches, with both Michael Beale and Julen Lopetegui turning down the vacant post at Molineux.

The former Crewe Alexandra boss has taken charge of three matches thus far, overseeing defeats against Crystal Palace and Chelsea on the road but earning an important 1-0 win against fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest at home.

The 57-year-old will be looking for another three points at Molineux on Sunday but will be wary that the Foxes have looked much improved in recent weeks, with two wins and a draw from their last four games.

Brendan Rodgers’ side, who have conceded the most goals in the top flight (24), have also looked much more defensively secure in recent weeks, earning back-to-back clean sheets against Crystal Palace and Leeds United in their last two openings.

The last thing Davis would have wanted, therefore, is for Leicester’s squad to become even stronger ahead of their trip to the Midlands on Sunday but unfortunately for the Old Gold, that is very much the case.

Rodgers confirmed earlier in the week that both Marc Albrighton and James Maddison would return for the trip to Molineux, with the former having been ill and the latter suspended for the game against Leeds last time out.

There is also a possibility that Jonny Evans could also return in central defence, which again would strengthen an ever-improving Foxes defence and will only make things difficult for Wolves given their attacking woes this season, with just five goals to their name in the top-flight.

Given that Maddison has comfortably been Leicester’s best performer in the Premier League this season, according to WhoScored, with five goals and two assists to his name, it is undoubtedly a blow that he will return for the game against Wolves.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

Davis will no doubt be sweating ahead of such an important fixture against the Foxes, and this boost for Rodgers could prove vital in deciding the winner on Sunday.
