A west vs east midlands derby saw Wolves travel to the King Power Stadium in the hope of claiming their first victory against Leicester since May 2007.

From the start, the Foxes quickly asserted dominance against Wolves, as the early pressure resulted in Jamie Vardy scoring from the spot after VAR deemed Max Kilman had handled the ball in the 14th minute.

A lacklustre and ill-disciplined away side were once again not able to handle Leicester after Aït-Nouri conceded the second penalty of the half. This time though, Rui Patricio was equal to it.

As if the second penalty had awoken them, Wolves had begun to find their feet and started to enter the Leicester final third, but their only shot of the half was off target.

Ten minutes after the restart saw golden chances for each team. Wolves pushing back and growing more confident, saw Pedro Neto’s shot collected by Schmeichel meanwhile Maddison won a corner at the other end.

Wolves substitute Adama Traore, immediately caused trouble on the righthand side, with his pace. This allowed Neto to move more inside, giving the Portuguese man a more threatening role.

Their dominance was almost rewarded with a fine strike from outside the area by Ruben Neves, but the Leicester keeper kept it out with a sublime save.

A late Leicester counterattack saw Justin feed Barnes, but the chance to put the game to bed was denied.

Despite being the better team in the second half, Wolves couldn’t find the all-important goal to prevent defeat.
