Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Leicester City: VAR denies hosts chance to close on top four

Boly’s header was the fourth goal Wolves have had disallowed by VAR this season. Only Sheffield United (five) have had more

Wolves missed out on the chance to close the gap on the top four as they were held to a goalless draw by 10-man Leicester City amid more VAR controversy.

Just before half-time, a Wily Boly header was disallowed as VAR ruled Pedro Neto’s heel to be offside as he collected Jonny’s lay-off after taking a corner.

In a scrappy, tight game chances were at a premium with Leicester’s best coming when Caglar Soyuncu headed straight at Rui Patricio.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were reduced to 10 men with 15 minutes remaining when midfielder Hamza Choudhury was sent off for his second bookable offence after slipping and bringing down Leander Dendoncker with his trailing leg.

The former Liverpool manager made an attacking change in an attempt to win the match but it was Wolves who came closest when an unmarked Raul Jimenez headed narrowly wide from a corner.

The draw sees Wolves to seventh, five points off Chelsea in fourth, while Leicester remain third, one point behind Manchester City in second and 11 clear of Sheffield United in fifth.
