Wolves denied by VAR intervention

Nuno Espirito Santo's side were held to a goalless draw by 10-man Leicester on Friday after Willy Boly's goal was disallowed.

Leicester remain third in the Premier League, one point behind second placed Manchester City as they bid to qualify for the Champions League.

Liverpool lead the standings on 73 points.

The VAR footage showed Neto's non-striking foot slightly offside when he received the ball back from Diogo Jota from the short corner.

Still unhappy at full-time, Wolves manager Nuno bemoaned the way VAR decisions and long delays are sucking the emotional aspect out of the sport. "I've spoken about it before and it doesn't really get you anywhere". "When you see the images, there is not a clear advantage but the law is the law", he said. I'm still positive, I'm upset of course because Molineux was buzzing and suddenly was down. "We are in danger of becoming robots".

Wolves, who sit seventh in the Premier League, still could have won after Hamza Choudhury was sent off 14 minutes from time for receiving a second yellow card, with Raul Jimenez heading wide and Kasper Schmeichel denying Adama Traore.

"I don't think the referees know what's going on and we don't know what's going on", said Coady.

Norwegian teen striker Erling Braut Haaland took his tally to nine goals in six games for Borussia Dortmund after netting again in Friday's 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. "I've no doubt that he's the player that will always be the threat and he's always going to get those opportunities".

"We probably could've been quicker around the attack - the build-up play was good - but away from home you expect to come under pressure and it ends up being a very good point".

The Foxes have won one of their last four games in the league while also losing their Carabao Cup semi-final to Aston Villa last month.
