Jamie Vardy’s first-half strike earned Leicester City a 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Leicester dominated possession early on but it was Wolves’ Adama Traore who had the first clear chance, firing wide when through on goal.
Instead, Vardy put Leicester in front four minutes before half-time, flicking in from Ricardo Pereira’s right-wing cross for his seventh opening-weekend goal.
Wolves responded well under new head coach Bruno Lage but debutant Trincao’s deflected strike went over the bar, before he was then denied by Kasper Schmeichel.
Raul Jimenez, making his first Premier League start since fracturing his skull in November 2020, headed over and Max Kilman’s late effort was saved by Schmeichel as Leicester held on to get off to a winning start.
