Wolves’ Premier League fixtures for the 2021/22 season have been announced.
Bruno Lage will kick off his reign with a trip to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium on the opening weekend of the season.
After facing the FA Cup winners, Wolves host Tottenham and Manchester United as part of a tricky start.
Wolves were away at Leicester on the opening weekend of the 2019/20 season, earning a 0-0 draw.
Their first away game of the 2018/19 season, following promotion, was also away at Leicester. That day, they lost 2-0.
That wasn’t lost on some Wolves fans on Twitter as they reacted to the fixture announcement.
It’s just one of the quirks of the fixture computer, but perhaps it would be better to have some variety.
Here’s how the announcement went down as the excitement builds ahead of next season:
