That is all from me! I've been Jack Witham and thanks for following that breath-taking game. Make sure you keep following VAVEL with all the games this weekend. 
There is likely to be more speculation about Claude Puel and his future at Leicester after another damaging defeat. His side got back into the game twice but looked all over the place at the back. 

For Wolves, Nuno will be happy with the win but could possibly face action after running onto the pitch when Wolves scored the winner. At this moment in time though, he won't be thinking about that!

Full Time: An incredible game here, as Jota scores a hat trick to move above Leicester into 8th place. The home side went 2-0 up in the first half but Leicester responded early in the second half and brought it back to 2 a piece. Wolves then regained their lead through Jota again but Leicester scored with 5 minutes to go and they thought they'd got a point until right at the very end when Jota grabbed his 3rd of the game to seal the victory for Wolves. 
FULL TIME!
And Breathe...
Sent off!
90+4' Following his actions, Nuno is sent to the stands. 
GOAL!
90+3. WOW! Incredible stuff here at Molineux. It's another pin point cross field ball from Neves who finds Jimenez in behind. He slides a ball across the box for Jota who places it into the corner to get his hat trick. Nuno is on the pitch celebrating with his players. Unbelievable stuff!

Kick Off
1' We are off! Teams Wolves: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Dendoncker, Jonny, Vinagre, Saiss, Neves, Moutinho, Jota, Jimenez, Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Ricardo, Morgan, Maquire, Chilwell, Gray, Mendy, Ndidi, Barnes, Vardy, A win today for Wolves will see them move above Leicester into 8th place. Leicester have the chance to move up to 7th before the 3 oclock kick offs. Last time out in the premier league between these two sides saw Leicester winners by two goals to nil. This is the 3rd meeting between these two teams this season, with the other meeting being in the Carabao Cup. That game finished 0-0, with The Foxes winning on penalties. Wolves have only won two of their last six games and will be looking to bounce back today with a win against their local rivals. Leicester have lost three of their last four in all competitions. The last time these two teams met at Molineux in the Premier League, Wolves came from 3-0 down at half time to win 4-3. Ashely Barnes is back from his loan spell with West Brom and will be hoping to carry on his form he showed in the championship.
