Leicester vs Wolves
Leicester City are set to start their 2021/22 Premier League campaign very soon.
The Foxes’ first outing of the season pits them against a new Wolves team.
Bruno Lage is now in command after Nuno Espirito Santo left the club earlier this year.
The Wolves should be a tough test for the Foxes, who are heading into this game fresh off their Community Shield win over Manchester City last weekend.
Leicester have now won two trophies with Brendan Rodgers, clinching the FA Cup in May, and will no doubt be eager to get their league campaign off to a good start and finally win the Champions League with Brendan Rodgers.

Why Ryan Bertrand missed Leicester vs Wolves
Before kick-off, both teams released their starting line-ups one hour before kick-off.
Leicester’s XI was pretty standard, with new signings Patson Daka, Jannik Vestergaard and Boubakary Soumare named to the bench.
However, a notable absentee from the entire squad of the day was Ryan Bertrand:
Subs: Ward, Vestergaard, Choudhury, Soumaré, Dewsbury-Hall, Praet, Albrighton, Daka, Iheanacho.#LeiWol

The left-back had a promising preseason and would start against Man City last Saturday. So his absence against the Wolves seemed somewhat strange.
However, an explanation for the side’s omission has since been provided, with confirmation that it has tested positive for Covid-19:
