A 4-3 Wolves win in January 2019 is the exception to the rule in this fixture. Not only is it Wolves’ only win against Leicester since returning to the Premier League but it also accounts for seven of the ten goals between these sides in their last six fixtures. Leicester and Wolves played out two goalless draws last season before Jamie Vardy’s penalty proved the only goal of the season at Molineux earlier this year. Here are the results of the last five matches:
Nov 08, 2020: Leicester City 1-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Feb 14, 2020: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Leicester City
Aug 11, 2019: Leicester City 0-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Jan 19, 2019: Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-3 Leicester City
Sep 25, 2018: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 (p) Leicester City
