In the clash between two of the Premier League’s serial overachievers, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side picked up a hard-earned point against a high-flying Leicester City team on Friday night. The fixture ended goalless despite both teams having multiple opportunities to open the scoring throughout the ninety. Wolves even had the ball in the back of the net on two separate occasions, only for both of them to then be ruled out by VAR.

Wolves Players Rated In Hard-Fought Draw Vs Leicester City

Rui Patricio – 7

The Portuguese shot-stopper had a strong first-half between the sticks as he made a couple of key saves to keep the Foxes at bay. Did well to read the ball and the movement of the Wolves attackers.

Willy Boly – 7.5

The big centre-half put the ball into the Leicester net from a set-piece in the first half, only for an earlier pass in the move to be judged offside. Defended well and didn’t allow Vardy any running room.

Conor Coady – 8

The 26-year-old put in a commanding display at the back for Nuno’s side and limited the dangerous Foxes front-line to just the three shots on target over the course of the ninety.

Romain Saiss – 7

Did well to step forward and move the ball into the areas of the pitch where the Wolves attackers can cause damage. Held his position well from set-pieces and tracked back effectively.

Matt Doherty – 7

The full-back took a nasty boot to the top of the head in the first half. Did well to head the ball back in for the disallowed Willy Boly goal.

Leander Dendoncker – 7

The versatile midfielder was deployed out of a more advanced role than usual tonight, operating alongside Neves in the heart of the Wolves midfield. Did well to keep the ball flowing.

Ruben Neves – 7

The Portuguese sensation did well to link up the lines and bring the potent Wolves attackers into the game. Wasn’t allowed too much time on the ball to dictate play as he usually does.

Jonny Castro – 7.5

The Spaniard put in a proper shift down the flank in the first half and defended efficiently for the whole ninety minutes. Succeeded in keeping the deadly Ayoze Perez quiet for most of the night.

Pedro Neto – 7

The youngster continues to portray himself as one of the league’s many unpolished gems. Showed great signs of promise in the first half but slowly fizzled out of proceedings.

Raul Jimenez – 6.5

The Mexican international striker put in a highly uncharacteristic performance against the Foxes, as he struggled to keep the ball within the frame of the goal, despite having multiple opportunities.

Substitutes

Adama Traore – 6.5

Brought on around the hour mark as Nuno looked to take advantage of the tiring legs within the Wolves back-line. Didn’t look as sharp as he has in recent weeks, but worked hard going forward.

Daniel Podence – NA

Didn’t have time to make an impact.

Joao Moutinho – NA

Didn’t have time to make an impact.
