Another round of Premier League games following the midweek programme means another week of Mark Lawrenson’s weekly BBC predictions column.
The former Liverpool defender has delivered his verdict on how he thinks Wolves will get on against Leicester at Molineux.
Wolves will be looking to build on their impressive 2-0 win at Tottenham last time out but Lawrenson thinks Bruno Lage will need to settle for a share of the spoils here.
“Leicester will be disappointed to concede an equaliser so late against West Ham, especially because they had recovered from a poor start and played pretty well for most of the game.
“The Foxes still have some key players out injured, but at least there were some signs there of them coming back into form a little bit.

“Unfortunately, their habit of conceding set-pieces and late goals has cost them a lot this season, and Wolves must be thinking they can take advantage too. Lawro’s prediction: Wolves 1-1 Leicester.”
This is an opportunity beat Leicester given their injuries and patchy form. Brendan Rodgers’ men were also in Europa League action last night and there may be some tiredness in the ranks.
If Wolves can get another win here, they would push their bid for European football on again, especially given none of the teams around them look convincing.
This is a winnable game if the level of performance from the Spurs game is replicated as well as the same ruthlessness in front of goal.
