Wolves vs Leicester City

, KO: 12:30 Jan 19, 2019, Molineux
Leicester City

THE Wolves appear to be out for Foxes boss Claude Puel and defeat at Molineux could end the Frenchman's Leicester reign.

With his side sitting eighth in the Premier League, having claimed the scalps of Chelsea and Manchester City in the last month, it's hard to fathom why Puel seems to be under so much pressure.

Crashing out of the FA Cup to Newport County certainly didn't help and neither did following it up with a home defeat to struggling Southampton.

But you'd think Puel would have banked enough goodwill from those huge wins over City and Chelsea to be able to ride out the storm, especially with the players still coming to terms with the tragic death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

However, this is the club who sacked Claudio Ranieri just months after the Italian had led Leicester to the most incredible title triumph so it's perhaps no real surprise to see Puel's coat on such a shoogly peg.

It was a similar story for the Frenchman at Southampton when he was binned with the club safe from harm, having come within a whisker of leading them to the League Cup.

He's just one of those dour managers fans and owners struggle to love and it's hard to see the negativity lifting with a victory at Molineux.

Although Wolves lost 3-0 at Manchester City in their last outing they were far from disgraced and played over 70 minutes with just 10 men.

So I'm backing them to end a poor run of league form by claiming just their second Premier League victory in six games. Wolves are a best 11/8 with Bet Victor and that looks great value for a home game against a team coming off two bad defeats.

Wily Boly's suspension is the only headache for Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo but Jonny Evans will be a bigger loss for Leicester's defence due to injury.

The stats suggest a lack of goals in this one, given Leicester's last six away league games have featured under 2.5 goals while the same applies for eight of Wolves' last 10 home league matches. But there's not much value to be had backing the same outcome as the best price for under 2.5 goals is 4/6 with Black Type.

The odds are better on either side keeping a clean sheet and I like the look of Wolves shutting out the Foxes which is 31/20 with Ladbrokes, Boylesports and Coral.

Wolves spearhead Raul Jimenez looks the most likely in the goalscorer markets and the Mexican is a best 11/2 (Betfair) for first scorer and 9/4 (SportingBet) for anytime scorer.

Leicester kid Harvey Barnes has returned from a brilliant loan spell at West Brom and could be worth a bet for anytime scorer. He's 11/2 with a host of firms to find the net in the 90 minutes.
