Match Thread Leicester City vs Wolves


We Got Ruben Neves

By Wolves
August 18 2018

Wolves travel to the King Power Stadium this afternoon in search of their first win of the new season against the former Champions

Nuno Espirito Santo takes his team to Leicester today in search of three points to add to the one gained at home last week, and to give Wolves a strong start to the season. It has been confirmed that Ivan Cavaleiro is suffering with a back problem and could be missing from the team for several weeks. However new signing Adama Traore is now fit to at least be on the bench and Leander Dendoncker is almost up to match fitness. 

It is likely to be a tough call against a well organised team who won the title two years ago, but one Nuno is clearly relishing.

The teams have been announced, and as expected Traore replaces Enobakhare on the bench, with an unchanged line-up:

Rui Patrício, Coady, Bennett, Boly, Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Doherty, Jiménez, Costa, Jota

Subs: Ruddy, Hause, Saïss, Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Bonatini, Traoré

Tough afternoon ahead, I think, though confident enough we can get something. Was away last week and I’ve heard varying reports of our performance, so I am looking forward to being in a position where I can can better judge what’s going on .... well as best you can from my house!

We could be 2 up by now - hit the bar and Doc had a good chance close up. Wolves moving the ball really quickly & positively

Disastrous header by the Doc puts it into his own net with a bullet header. Totally against the run of play he went to clear it and misjudged it I think
City 1 Wolves 0

Neves gets an elbow to the face from Maddison, who incidentally likes to fall over whenever necessary!!

Quite a break whilst Neves gets treatment but he seems OK and accepts an apology

Maddison takes a chance from outside the area and scores. Coady stood off him and gave him too much room whilst blindsiding Patricio. Now we've got our work cut out!!

I cannot bother with streams anymore so I can´t see the match.
Watched Docs goal though..own goals is often of the beautiful kind.

Maddison 2-0..game over?

It is always tough playing in the Premier League.

Not really - the defence have been coping generally pretty well, and Wolves have matched City for effort and skill. However as we know small errors can often be costly and that's where we are at half after two of them!

City 2 Wolves 0

Bad luck or something else,if we don´t capitalise on our chances the opponent will.
We have seen it before.Premier League is very unforgiving regarding this.

Still,we seems to have played well enough to come in for tea with at least a level result.

Let´s hope for a better score in the second half.

Missed our chances early on and get punished, against the run of play, so it seems. This is the prem - no second chances like the chump.
Sounds like we are playing okay but we’ve got to learn fast!
UTW!

Traore on for the unlucky Doherty?

Doc simply must score that chance he had.
Instead an own goal and seems to have had trouble containing Gray?

Traore and Bonatini on for Costa & Jota. Jimenez moves out to right side

Good work from Traore eventually leads to a shot wide from Neves

Let´s see how it works out.
Neither Jota or Costa have had a good start of this season.
Interesting to see what impact,if any,Traore has.

Traore shows some potential & wins a free kick, but we're not showing much threat up front this half so far

It's a bad day at the office for the Doc so far today.

Vandy gets a red card for a rash tackle on Doc

Doc gets treatment on right knee but I think he'll be OK. No arguement from Vardy or City

Great attack down left of penalty are by Jonny Otto but his shot hits the outside of the post & goes out. He has played quite well today & looks to be settling into the team.
No sign of us scoring yet!!

Failing to exert authority with their 1 man advantage for a second week?
C’mon Wolves!

Six minutes added time to be played. City will probably waste two of them!!

All over. A tough match for Wolves, unlucky with early chances but didn't create enough in second half. Doc had a day to forget especially with scoring an OG, then getting hurt. City took their other goal well.
Wolves tried hard in 2nd half but really didn't pose enough threat, even when City went down to 10 men. I thought Neves & Moutinho gelled well in midfield and generally Bennett, Coady & Boly did well in defence. Otto looks a very comfortable replacement for Douglas. Jota & Costa created some good chance in first half & Jimenez went close hitting the post with a good shot. Leo and Traore didn't make enough difference in the second half.
Even Moore of a challnge to face next week!!

One of those days,I hope we don´t have too many of those.

Traore a big positive last 35 minutes I saw.Surely he is ahead of Helder Costa in the pecking order now.

Matt Doherty having a nightmare of a game.I suspect The Doc isn´t good enough for Premier League.

Leo Bonatini the same.I surely miss the comfortable Prem scorer in our team.

Early days yet,,,but it´s going to be a long and hard season and we better get used to that straight away.

Disappointing result, no two ways about it and the Baggies score 7!

Sounded like we were at least in it, although Sky’s Le Tissier wasn’t exactly on the edge of his seat anticipating a second half comeback for us. Encouraging elements but we have to up our game .... stating the bleeding obvious!

Man City next up!!!

Hitting the bar and post 3 times.11 shots against 6 by Leicester.9 corners for Wolves against 1 by Leicester. We just need to be a bit sharper in our finishing and have some decent luck.

Why didn't we buy Maddison? We could barely contain him when we played Norwich last season, and was one of if not the best player we faced in the championship. I thought he was destined for a Big 6, that he ended up at Leicester and not us is a big miss in my opinion.

I thought he might score today and so he has.

We have to start finishing, sides that struggle to score goal get relegated.

Not sure that Jota and Costa have made the step up yet, which is a concern.
