Leicester City travel to face Wolverhampton Wanderers as they look to pick up a run of games. Here is the injury and availability ahead of the tie.

11 games played, eight points gained, finally two wins and two draws. With form starting to improve, the King Power club will be looking to start getting played back fit and ready for the next run of games.

The Leeds United match was a much-welcomed return to some semblance of a team. Aggressive defenders, progressive movements, and a high press led by Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Dennis Praet. We hope to see much more of this.

Leicester City players possibly back

However, the Foxes need to get their key players back into the side to take advantage of the slither of momentum they have been building. Luckily, there seems to be some positive movement according to reports.

After a short time off with illness, vice-captain Marc Albrighton will return to availability for the Wolves match. Although we cannot expect the player to make a starting appearance, the VC should definitely be back on the bench. Always reliable, and always useful.

Captain Jonny Evans is back in training. Of course, the fixture might be too soon for the integral defender to make a return. I would still expect to see the Northern Irishman on the bench for Leicester.

Meanwhile, the primary injury-based absences remain. Wilfred Ndidi will not return to training or feature for at least another week. Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira remain heavily on the sidelines. At least James Maddison is returning from his one-match suspension.

Expected XI

I expect almost an unchanged starting XI. Danny Ward will remain. A backline of James Justin, Daniel Amartey, the brilliant Wout Faes, and Timothy Castagne represents the best Brendan Rodgers trusts.

A midfield of ‘KDH’, Youri Tielemans, and Boubakary Soumare makes sense. Harvey Barnes, Patson Daka, and ‘Madders’ will be the likely front three. I do hope Praet and Kelechi Iheanacho are brought on later in the match.
