Unai Emery’s men regained the lead with a 32nd-minute own goal from Leicester debutant Harry Souttar.

But Leicester equalised again in the 41st minute through Iheanacho and Tete netted on his debut in first-half stoppage time before Dennis Praet wrapped up the points in the 79th minute.

The win moved Leicester to the 13th place on the log with 21 points.

Away Leicester City scores “four” against Wolves.


Leicester City moved up to 16th in the Premier League table thanks to a thumping 4-0 win over Wolves at Molineux on Sunday afternoon.

Goals from Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy earned the vital win for the Foxes.

Although Wolves started well, a moment of real quality would give Leicester City an early lead. Youri Tielemans would provide said quality, volleying brilliantly into the top left corner of Jose Sa’s net from 25-yards. SportBet ⚽ Get a free promo code of about 50% … Click now!!

Not to be deterred by going behind, the home side pressed forward immediately after conceding in search of an equaliser. In the 10th minute a brilliant chance to make it 1-1 fell to Matheus Nunes who was played through on goal on the right of the penalty area. His effort on goal, however, was well smothered by Danny Ward in the Foxes goal.

Wolves were made to rue that missed opportunity eight minutes later, as Harvey Barnes doubled his side’s lead. A wonderful sweeping move from right to left culminated in a quick one-two between Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Barnes, with the latter subsequently drilling low into the back of the net.

It was so nearly 3-0 on the half hour mark when Barnes drilled the ball low across goal – a ball which Tielemans just couldn’t get his foot on.


Just before half-time Wolves would be denied by Ward once again. This time the Leicester number one was on hand to palm a venomous effort from Daniel Podence wide of his right post.

Immediately after the interval, the home side continued to push forward hoping to half their arrears. Ruben Neves was first in the second 45 to come close to scoring, drilling a free kick just wide, before Diego Costa spurned a good chance from a corner kick – side-footing into Ward’s mid-riff.

As they were in the first half, Wolves were made to pay for these missed chances, going three goals behind in the 65th minute. Leicester’s third would come from club top scorer James Maddison, who curled a great effort past the outstretched Jose Sa and into the top corner.

That goal proved to knock the stuffing out of the home side, and Leicester were able to add to their tally in the 79th minute thanks to substitute Jamie Vardy. The 35-year-old stole in unmarked inside the six-yard box to sweep a Timothy Castagne cross from the right flank.

Ralf Rangnick laments Sancho & Elanga’s wastefulness in Leicester draw.


Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick said he couldn’t fault his team’s effort in their 1-1 draw with Leicester but did criticise their decision making, notably that of Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga.

The Red Devils rescued a point from what was really a must-win match in their pursuit of a top-four finish. Kelechi Iheanacho gave the Foxes a second-half lead which was quickly cancelled out by a strike from Fred, while VAR stepped in to deny James Maddison a winner.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed the match due to illness and United sorely missed his presence up top, with Bruno Fernandes starting as the striker before Marcus Rashford was introduced after 55 minutes.

Speaking post-game, Rangnick admitted the game was not particularly easy on the eye, but revealed there were two key moments towards the end of the 90 minutes which Sancho and Elanga were unable to capitalise on.

“I think we had a difficult, bumpy start into the game,” Rangnick said. “The first half was difficult to find the rhythm, a lot of unforced errors, passes played in a sloppy way, the speed of our build-up was not high enough and that’s why we had problems in the first half to find our rhythm.

“Overall, the second half was better, but the goal we conceded in a moment where we had the chance to be on the counter-attack ourselves, being tackled away twice, losing the ball within six seconds when all the defensive players had closed up. Brilliant cross but we could have defended the cross on the wing and inside better, that goal didn’t make life easy for us.

“The reaction to the goal was good, we came back from a goal from Fred and in the last 15 minutes we tried everything, not always taking the right decisions but we had two or three good opportunities.

“Jadon should have taken two touches on the far post when Fofana slipped and had Anthony Elanga stayed away from that ball when Marcus Rashford would have been completely free and either probably scored or it would have been a penalty.

“We tried, so I cannot fault the team for not trying and the effort in the last 20 minutes, but obviously, it was not a result we were trying to get.”

Man Utd remain in sixth place in the Premier League table, three points behind Arsenal in fourth but having played two games more.


Youri Tielemans will ‘see what happens’ in summer amid uncertain Leicester future


Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans has admitted he will ‘see what happens’ in summer with regard to his uncertain future, reiterating his desire to play Champions League football.

Tielemans is out of contract with the Foxes in 2023, which realistically means the coming transfer window is the club’s last chance to command a decent fee for the Belgium international.

Noble Reporters Media understands that Tielemans is not interested in extending his Leicester contract and has rejected the offer of fresh terms as he weighs up other options amid interest in his services from some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.

Speaking about his future while on international duty, the 24-year-old pledged his commitment to Leicester for the rest of this season. But suggested that he will have some thinking to do in the summer, even hinting at a free transfer in 2023 instead if no deal materialises sooner.

“I don’t worry about [transfer rumours]. I want to get the most out of myself this season and finish as high as possible with the team,” Tielemans said.

“Of course, I want to play in the Champions League, just like any footballer. Am I ready for a European top club? I’m ready to get the best out of my career. We’ll see what happens next summer, or the summer after that.”

Earlier this month, Tielemans insisted he is happy at Leicester – both on and off the pitch – and is in no rush to leave. He also explained that talks between the club and his representatives are ongoing, but stressed that he will take time to assess what options are available.

“My contract expires in 2023 and it’s not that I absolutely want to leave. I haven’t made my decision yet. If I have to stay another year, I will gladly do so,” the player said.

“There are talks between the club and my advisors. That will remain so. It’s not that I’m ignoring the club. I will study my options in the summer and make a decision.”


New Wesley Fofana contract with Leicester City to end 2027.


Leicester City have announced that Wesley Fofana has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2027.

Fofana has not played this campaign after suffering a broken leg in pre-season, but last term he established himself as one of the best young defenders in Europe, making 28 Premier League appearances as his side secured a second successive fifth-placed finish.

His absence has been harshly felt this season too, with the Foxes leaking goals and currently sitting in the bottom half of the table.

Fofana had also been linked with both Real Madrid and Chelsea recently, and news of his renewal is a big boost for the club.

“I’m really happy to sign a new contract. It shows the Club have confidence in me offering me a contract to 2027. I’m really happy to be here. It’s my Club, I love the fans, so I’m really happy and really looking forward to being back playing,” Fofana told LCFC TV.

“I love everything about the Club. I love the city, I love the fans. It’s a family which is what I love the most. Everyone is close and gets on well.

“We also have a great team and are continuing to progress, with a desire to win more trophies. That’s why I have committed my future to the Club until 2027. I want to achieve more with the Club. There is a lot of talent here and still a lot more we can do together.”
