Leicester City have kept a clean sheet in each of their last five league meetings with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
They last had a longer run of consecutive clean sheets against an opponent against Barnsley (seven between 1997 and 2009), while Wolves last had a longer run of failing to score against a side versus Brighton & Hove Albion (six between 1980 and 1984).
The Foxes won the reverse fixture against Wolves 1-0 on the opening weekend. They last did the league double over them in 1995/96 in the second tier.
Wolves haven’t conceded more than once in any of their last 12 Premier League matches, since a 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace in November. Only twice in their league history have they had longer such runs – 14 matches between December 2013 and March 2014, and 13 contests between March and September 1912.
Four of Raul Jimenez’s five Premier League goals for Wolves this season have ended up being the match-winner. Overall, 46 per cent of his goals in the competition have been winners (18 out of 39). In the competition’s history, of players with at least 30 goals, only Rob Lee has had a higher ratio of winning strikes, at 50 per cent.
