FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Wolves’ win at Tottenham in the Premier League.

Team News: Wolves Boss Bruno Lage has confirmed he has no injury concerns for the first time since joining the club as his side prepare to face Leicester on Sunday.

Joao Moutinho returned to full training on Thursday after missing the last two Premier League games with a calf injury.

Lage has also been boosted by the return of Pedro Neto – who missed 10 months of action with a knee injury – and the 21-year-old winger could potentially make his first appearance of the season this weekend.

Hwang Hee-Chan came off the bench in the dying minutes of Wolves’ 2-0 win at Tottenham last week and is in contention to play more minutes while defenders Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera also returned to full training .

Provisional squad of wolves…

Sa, Ruddy, Hoever, Ait-Nouri, Marcal, Coady, Jonny, Semedo, Kilman, Boly, Mosquera Toti, Saiss, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Cundle, Neto, Jimenez, Podence, Trincao, Silva, Chiquinho, Hwang, Campbell .

Leicester rated James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu after the two had to come off late in the Europa Conference League win over Randers on Thursday.

Midfielder Maddison left the pitch after feeling “bad” and “a little weak”, said boss Brendan Rodgers, and defender Soyuncu later followed with a knee problem.

Checks are also underway on Luke Thomas (hamstring) and Ricardo Pereira, while the game comes too early for Wesley Fofana to make a comeback. The Foxes also have James Justin, Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans, Timothy Castagne and Ryan Bertrand ruled out.

Provisional squad for Leicester…

Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Amartey, Pereira, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Thomas, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Choudhury, Dewsbury-Hall, Mendy, Ndidi, Soumare, Iheanacho, Perez, Daka, Lookman.
