At the other end, Leicester break, but Barnes makes the wrong call and is dispossessed. Vardy had made a great run, but wasn't found.

58' 

Now Hoever overhits a cross. Wolves are pressing for a leveller, but not many chances here.

57' 

Looks like defender Jannik Vestergaard might be about to come on for his Leicester debut as Hoever makes the wrong decision and a Wolves attack dies out.

53' 

Marcal's cross is met by Jimenez, but his header is not troubling anyone.

52' 

Corner taken by Moutinho cleared by Tielemans. Wolves are being more adventurous and less reactive here.

MISS! Oh my, Traore! One on one with Schmeichel after pulling away from Leicester's back line, and he somehow puts it wide!

34' 

Maddison searches for Vardy, who tries an extragavant backheel over the onrushing Sa. It didn't work...

30' 

Half an hour in here and Wolves haven't threatened enough. They can switch it on any moment, though.

26' 

Wolves back off Vardy, who takes the opportunity to shoot from just outside the area. It is powerful and on target, but not troubling Sa.

24' 

Well over by Neves from distance. Good run inside from Traore, who found Jimenez in the build up, though.

22' 

Off the line! Wolves clear as Maddison goes close. Leicester playing with freedom.

21' 

Feels like this game has settled into a pattern. Leicester dominating the ball, but Neves disposseses Ndidi to break at pace.

17' 

Tielemans' corner is poor and Traore breaks at pace. He had options but went for the shot and saw it blocked well by Thomas.

Wolves get us underway!

14:59 

It is nearly time! 2021/22 is upon us!

14:52 

The atmosphere is building!

14:45 

15 minutes to go! Who is excited?

14:35 

Jamie Vardy and James Maddison starting for Leicester today. Maddison has been linked with Arsenal this summer.

14:27 

One player to watch out for is Wolves new boy Francisco Trincao. Signed from Barcelona, he's tricky and a threat. He starts up front with Jimenez and Adama Traore in a 3-4-3 today.

14:25 

History is certainly on Leicester's side. They've only lost one of their last 24 home league games against Wolves. Wolves have also failed to score in five of their meetings with the Foxes since returning to the Premier League in 2018.

14:23 

So what can we expect from Wolves today and this season? Will Lage keep it similar to Nuno? With Jimenez back, they've got potency. It should be a really interesting game today.

14:07 

Leicester are looking to go again in their push for the Champions League. Brendan Rodgers' side have been in the top four for most of the last two seasons but faded away in the end. They softened the blow with the FA Cup last season, but can they achieve the dream this term? It certainly will be a tough start today.

14:05 

New dawn, new era at Wolves. Here is Bruno Lage's first ever selection. How great is it to see Raul Jimenez back in action for the first time in the Premier League since fracturing his skull?

14:03 

Here is Leicester's first teamsheet of the season! NO new signings involved.

14:00 

Hello and happy new Premier League season! Eurosport will have LIVE coverage of Leicester City vs Wolves from the King Power Stadium. Kick off is in an hour.
