Jamie Vardy and Raul Jimenez go close as VAR helps overrule Belgian's goal in 0-0 draw at King Power Stadium

Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers had to settle for a point apiece as they drew 0-0 at King Power Stadium.

The home side dominated first-half possession and Leicester came closest when Jamie Vardy failed to connect with Youri Tielemans' centre across the six-yard area.

Wolves thought they had scored six minutes into the second half, but Leander Dendoncker’s strike was ruled out after the Video Assistant Referee confirmed the Belgian had headed against Willy Boly's arm before the ball fell back to him to score.

Wolves' Raul Jimenez twice forced Kasper Schmeichel into saves in the second half, while Leicester substitute Harvey Barnes could not beat Rui Patricio from distance as neither team were able to break the deadlock.
