VAR denies Leander Dendoncker and Wolves in goalless draw at Leicester City

11 August 2019 03:10
Neither of these sides will turn their nose up at a point prised from decent opponents, but both have cause to be frustrated by their opening game of the domestic campaigns. Leicester will be unsatisfied at how few chances they created despite having most of the ball. Wolves can regret not making off with a victory after wasting a couple of clear opportunities and having a goal by Leander Dendoncker contentiously disallowed after a review by VAR.Wolves had deployed a strong team in Armenia on Thursday and nine of the players who began there were included in the starting lineup here. Would they be sharper than the hosts by dint of having played three competitive matches already this season, or would the strain of those excursions tell on a side that only arrived back from Yerevan early on Friday morning? Nuno Espírito Santo got the answer he was looking for at first, as his team made the brighter start. They were quicker to the ball and seemed more in synch with each other. No surprise, really, as these players have long formed a finely tuned unit under Nuno – their European campaign has not yet taken a tool heavy enough to rode well learned habits.
