Wolves 0, Leicester 0, positives and negatives, player ratings, and match report

Going to Molineux is never easy, and to get something from a Wolves game away is always a bonus, and with key players absent you are always nervous for the outcome. Brendan Rodgers made the obvious choice of players just rolling out the same team as against Fulham.

It was a game of few chances and most attempts never really showed the quality needed to get them into the goal, with Wolves probably more aggressive early on, with a few attempts from Pedro Neto running around Jonny Evans but the finishing wasn’t on mark.

James Maddison tried to make the difference also, but he was silenced and never managed to get anything out of a game that we would believe he could have dominated, Youri Tielemans also missed a great opportunity and it was one of those days.

Harvey Barnes also had a few attempts and he was lively in his play today, probably alongside James Justin the two Leicester players that had their best day, without being able to get anything out of their attempts.

Jamie Vardy came of the bench late on in the game and had a header that was close, but without that attempt ending in a goal the game faded out into a 0-0 draw.

Would have taken a draw at Molineux any day of the week, and against a very unpredictable Wolves with difficulties to score, 0-0 was probably a result that most bookies would have said was the obvious outcome.

Leicester are still up there in the top race, not losing anything to Man Utd, two points above, moving up one in front of Liverpool, but with Chelsea on a run at the moment, they are a team to look out for in the race for Champions League football next season.
