Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
After holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, Wolverhampton will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Leicester City at their Molineux Stadium in the fourth round of the EFL Cup. The Portuguese colony has been in a thrilling form at the start of the new Premier League campaign and it is more than obvious that coach Nuno Espirito Santo is doing a great job with Wolverhampton. Considering that Leicester City are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the Wolves are going to advance to the fourth round of the League Cup. The Foxes did well to beat Huddersfield Town at home at the weekend, but you should bear in mind that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last away game in the English top flight. Leicester City were beaten 4-2 to Bournemouth in that match.
Highlighted Player (John Ruddy):
John Ruddy is a goalkeeper who was born in St Ives, England on 24 October, 1986. He played for a number of English clubs in the past and he started his senior career at Cambridge United. After making 39 appearances for Cambridge, he signed a deal with Everton for a fee of £250,000.
However, he failed to establish himself as the team’s first-choice shoot-stopper and as a result, he spent a bit part of his career on loan at Walsall, Rushden and Diamonds, Chester City, Stockport County, Wrexham, Bristol City, Crewe Alexandra and Motherwell. In 2010 he made a right decision when he signed for Norwich city for an undisclosed fee as he was immediately given the number 1 shirt.

However, Ruddy was forced to withdraw from the squad through injury. John Ruddy is married to Laura and his nickname is “The Iceman”. He was named Norwich City Players’ Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season.
