The Premier League is back and so is Mark Lawrenson with his weekly predictions column.

The BBC pundit has delivered his verdict on how he thinks Wolves will get on against Leicester tomorrow.

Bruno Lage’s first competitive match in charge is a tricky trip to face a Foxes side who beat Manchester City 1-0 in the Community Shield last Saturday.

Mark Lawrenson predicts Leicester vs Wolves

Three of the past four meetings between the clubs have been 0-0 draws. Leicester won last season’s corresponding fixture 1-0.

And Lawrenson thinks the FA Cup winners will get their season underway with a win.

I am not really sure what to expect from new Wolves boss Bruno Lage, but we know what Leicester will try and do – attack them.


It will help the Foxes a lot that they had a game which meant something with the Community Shield last weekend, and that gives them the slight advantage here. 2-0.

Lawrenson goes up against a celebrity each week and this time it’s singer-songwriter Louisa Roach, aka psych-pop band She Drew the Gun.

For what it’s worth, she thinks Wolves will get a 1-1 draw to kick off their season.

If Wolves start like they did last week against Celta Vigo, it’ll be a tough afternoon.

If they replicate their second half performance from that match, they’ve got every chance of getting a result. Being more clinical will be crucial though.
