LEI vs WOL Dream11 Team Prediction: Leicester City will be back in action in the Premier League, as they take on Wolves at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes will be heading in with  positive frame of mind, as they ended up beating Manchester City 1-0 in the Community Shield. A late penalty by Kelachi Iheancho got Brendan Rodgers his second piece of silverware for the club. However, Leicester City will now be aiming to book a spot in the top four, after missing out on the final day in the previous to editions. Leicester City do have the personnel to go big, and their wins over Chelsea in the FA Cup Final and Manchester City for the Community Shield will only add further confidence to their camp.

As for Wolves, it might turn out to be an interesting season from a neutral view. With Nuno Espirito Santo now moving to Spurs, it will be Bruno Lage who will have managerial duties at the Molineux.

The onus is now on Bruno Lage’s and his philosophy to take the club to the next level, by sticking a claim for Europe as well.

Captain Options

Kelechi Iheanacho can be the danger man from Leicester City’s end. Iheanacho bagged 19 goals from 39 starts last season, and should be starting here.

Jamie Vardy can also pack a punch for Leicester City. The veteran centre forward secured 17 goals from 42 starts last season.

Pedro Neto could make an impact from the flanks for Wolves. Neto scored five goals from 35 appearances last season.
