Wolves take on Leicester City this weekend, and a tough game lies in wait for Nuno Espirito Santo.

The Foxes, like Wolves, have enjoyed a really solid start to the 2020/21 season, and sit second in the table just a point off leaders Liverpool.

They’ve had some excellent results, including away wins at Manchester City (5-2), Arsenal (1-0) and Leeds (4-1).

Brendan Rodgers is doing a tremedous job at the King Power and has built a scary team since becoming manager in February 2019.

Wolves have also been going well, with the defence particularly strong this term.

The backline has been aided by the rise to prominence of Max Kilman, who came in for the Fulham game last month and has kept his place in the side ever since.

 

He’s been fantastic as the left-sided centre-half, but one imagines the 23-year-old is probably in for his sternest test yet on Sunday.

Vardy is looking sharper than ever this term and has already scored seven goals in 2020/21.

The £140,000-a-week star’s (Spotrac) movement against Leeds on Monday was a sight to behold, and Kilman could find the 33-year-old trying to play around him specifically given his lack of experience in comparison to Willy Boly and Conor Coady.

Kilman has been receiving many plaudits lately, but if he can shackle last season’s Golden Boot winner and one of the Premier League’s current most in-form stars, then it would definitely further suggest him as being the real deal.
