Game Report

Highlights

Clear-cut chances were at a premium as Leicester and Wolves played out a goalless draw. The foxes dominated possession throughout but Wolves came closest to winning and were controversially denied a goal by VAR.

Detail

Wolves looked a little off the pace early on probably still feeling the effects of their 4000-mile round trip to Armenia on Thursday as Leicester took control.

Despite The Foxes seeing the majority of the ball they were restricted to long-range efforts as Wolves sat back and looked to counter.

Wolves began the second period a lot brighter and the game opened up slightly. Raul Jimenez got himself in a great position to score but delayed his shot which was deflected into the arms of Schmeichel.

Wolves then thought they had taken the lead from a corner. Dendoncker smashing home, only for VAR to overturn the decision with the ball adjudged to have hit defender Boly's arm in the build-up.

That decision lifted Leicester and they regained the initiative for the remainder of the match. Despite this they were unable to create much, an overhead kick from Johnny Evans the closest they came.

Summary

Both teams will be fairly content with a point and you get the feeling there won't be much to seperate them over the course of the season. Leicester will need to be more creative in the final third while Wolves weren't at their fluent best.
