Two sides who find themselves in the midst of an extended rut, European contenders Wolves and Leicester will face off at Molineux on Friday night.
Playing out a 0-0 stalemate at Old Trafford last time out, Wolves’ hectic schedule appears to have caught up with them after enduring a run of form that has seen them collect just a sole victory in their previous eight matches across all competitions.

Although the Foxes might still have a fearsome reputation for their performances in the final third, Leicester have begun to show some recent issues at the back.
