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, Wily Boly looked to have opened the scoring for the hosts after a short corner routine but his close-range header was ruled out with Pedro Neto judged to be offside in build-up.

Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury was sent-off 14 minutes from the end of normal time after collecting two bookings in the second half.

But in a game full of incident and goalscoring chances, the main talking point was Boly’s disallowed effort.

Only Sheffield United, with five, have had more goals ruled out by VAR decisions in the Premier League this term than Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and the decision was greeted with derision by the home supporters who chanted ‘What a load of rubbish’ and ‘Is it football anymore?’.

The result leaves Leicester third in the table, a point behind Manchester City.

However, Wolves move up to seventh, three points behind Sheffield United in fifth, and well-placed to compete for a Champions League place next term, if City’s ban from European club competitions is upheld and England retains four clubs in the competition.
