Wolverhampton vs Leicester / Carabao Cup – This week will be played the third round of the English League Cup, which is named for the second season in a row as Carabao Cup. Out of fixtures for Tuesday we have singled out a very interesting match between two Premier League teams, Wolverhampton and Leicester. The two teams are neighbours in the table right now and have the same number of points. We should add that one month ago Leicester won the Wolves 2-0 at home.
Wolverhampton vs Leicester begins 25.09.2018 at 20:45 CET
Since it was the only Wolverhampton’s defeat this season it is quite clear that they will be maximally motivated to revenge to the Foxes at least in the League Cup. On top of it, this returnee to the English elite football league has five-game unbeaten streak of three wins and two draws, where the Wolved tied the result both times with two very strong teams from Manchester. Before that, they won West Ham and Burnley in the Premier League, and Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup.
At the start of the new season the Wolves drew at home with Everton and lost above-mentioned away match with Leicester, so after six rounds they occupy very good 10th place in the table, having won nine points. Of course, manager Santo is very pleased with results of his team so far and it can be expected to rest most of standard starter in this League Cup match. We should add taht still out of action is injured winger Cavalerio.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Ruddy – Coady, Saiss, Hause – Iorfa, Dendoncker, Gibbs – White,Vinagre – Traore, Bonatini, Jota
Regarding the Foxes from Leicester, we have said in the introduction that they have the same number of points in the league as Wolverhampton, but due to a bit better goal difference they currently occupy one place above them in the table. We have also said that they achieved one of three league victories right against the Wolves, while besides them they also won Southampton away and Huddersfield 3-1 at home in the previous round.
We should outline that team led by manager Puel effortlessly won at home third-division Fleetwood 4-0 in the previous round of the League Cup, and that it managed to score when it lost in the league to Manchester United, Liverpool and Bournemouth. We expect from Puel to give chance in this match with the Wolves to players who otherwise don’t make too many minutes in the Premier Legue, where the only one who is out of action is midfielder James.
Probable lineups Leicester: Ward – Pereira, Morgan, Soyuncu, Fuchs – Iborra, Silva – Ghezzal, Iheanacho, Albrighton – Okazaki

Although the two teams are supposed to play with reserve team we expect that both managers stay loyal to their bit more offensive tactics, which is why we opted here for a pick with goals on both sides of the pitch.
