Jamie Vardy was dismissed on 66 minutes, but Leicester City held on with ten men to record a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton.
Claude Puel made four changes to his side from the opening-day defeat at Old Trafford. Debutante Jonny Evans partnered Harry Maguire in central defence, Nampalys Mendy and Marc Albrighton started in midfield, while Iheanacho made way for Vardy up front. Wolves rung the woodwork twice early, but it was the Foxes who struck first when a cross from Albrighton was inadvertently headed into his own by Matt Doherty on 29 minutes. James Maddison put the home side two goals ahead on the stroke off half-time with a curled, but deflected, strike from the edge of the area. The match took a sour note for Puel side's on 65 minutes when Vardy was sent off for a reckless challenge on Doherty, but Wolves could not capitalise on their man advantage. With Vardy facing a three-match ban, Iheanacho will get another chance to solidify his place in the starting XI. Aug 18 - 12:49 PM
