Leicester City – The Wolves will be a nice game on the opening weekend as they clash at King Power Stadium on Saturday (starting time 10am ET on the USA Network and online via NBCSports.com) and both teams are optimistic about the new round Season of the year.
After beating Manchester City last weekend and winning the Community Shield, Leicester will be full of confidence. The Foxes have done well this summer, with Ryan Bertand, Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare, and Brendan Rodgers is aiming for a top-four finish in fifth for two seasons in a row.
As for the Wolves, so has the new coach Bruno Lage Raul Jimenez fit again and their attack unit is built around the Mexico star. It will certainly be interesting to see how the Wolves fare without longtime coach Nuno Espirito Santo as they have the roster to push for a top 6 finish. But it all depends on whether Jimenez hits the ground after his long-awaited return from a fractured skull.
