Despite Kelechi Iheanacho grabbing a late consolation this 3-1 defeat for Leicester was one-way traffic for the majority of the match. Man City dominated possession and attacked in wave after wave against a Leicester side that has looked off the pace all season. New manager Dean Smith has a lot of work to do if he is to save this side from relegation.
Diego Costa’s first Premier League goal in six years set Wolves on the way to victory on Saturday. Hwang Hee-chan added a second in the 70th minute for Julen Lopetegui’s men as they stifled the usually potent Brentford attack. Undefeated in three matches and now seven points above the relegation places, Wolves have probably done enough to secure their Premier League status for next season but they could put a nail in Leicester’s coffin here.
Dean Smith will be hoping that his first home game in charge goes differently from his first away game. Wolves may not score many, but their defense has improved of late and they will make life hard for Leicester. This match may play out more like a game of chess than an all-time Premier League classic.
