The points were shared at Molineux on Sunday afternoon as both Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers were unable to convert their chances

Fabio Silva missed the chance to put his side ahead in the 77th minute, being denied by the foot of Kasper Schmeichel. Jamie Vardy made his return from injury and nearly made himself the hero late on, with his header going agonisingly wide. 

A draw was a fair outcome of the game, neither team deserved to leave the game empty-handed. 

Here are the player ratings:

  • Defence

Kasper Schmeichel - 8/10: The Leicester keeper wasn’t called into action a lot in the game but when needed, he stepped up. The Dane got a crucial boot on Fabio Silva’s shot which could’ve won it for the home side. To top the performance also, he added another clean sheet to for his ninth of the season. 

Ricardo Pereira - 6/10: The Portuguese right back started his second game back from injury. Despite struggling to keep Pedro Neto quiet in the first half, he made some good runs on the wings trying to make magic happen for the home side. He didn’t do a lot of wrong in the game and did his job well. 

Caglar Soyuncu- 7/10: The young defender was partnered by Jonny Evans. Although he didn’t have a massive impact on the game, he was solid and was able to receive a clean sheet. Willian Jose barely had a sniff of goal thanks to the Leicester defensive pairing. He was booked after blocking the path of tricky winger, Adama Traore

Jonny Evans - 7/10: The most experienced within the Foxes' side, he didn't see much of the ball and kept the defensive line well. Like Soyuncu, he kept the Wolves’ attackers quiet. Evans was also booked, receiving his sixth yellow of the season. 

James Justin - 7/10: The young Englishman faced the challenging battle of strong and speedy winger, Adama Traore. The wing-back made a goal saving block in the first half from Traore’s shot. After a good first 15 minutes making some good challenges, Traore grew into the game more and more and was a real threat in the Midlands side.

  • Midfield

Hamza Choudhury - 7/10: Made some fantastic challenges and was brave and backed himself going into the tackle. He controlled the midfield and did well in Wilfred Ndidi’s absence. 

Youri Tielemans - 6/10: Looked for the killer pass all afternoon and was eyeing up chances for the Foxes but they mostly didn’t pay off. After being terrific in the past few months, his passing and offloading wasn’t quite up to scratch. 

Ayoze Pérez - 5/10: Didn’t look up to the task against Wolves and gave the ball away cheaply on countless occasions. Didn’t get a chance in on goal and was anonymous in the most part of Leicester’s counter-attacks. 

Harvey Barnes - 7/10: Was the Foxes' biggest threat on Sunday afternoon, causing issues for Nelson Semedo all afternoon. When dribbling with the ball, the youngster makes it seem effortless. He linked up with Kelechi Iheanacho well on occasions and if it wouldn't have been for Max Kilman’s block, he would’ve been on the score sheet.

James Maddison - 7/10: Looking to be creative and influential in the attacks, it didn’t quite work out how he would have liked to this afternoon but fought hard till the final whistle. His set-piece delivery disappointed once more, not getting into the danger area. 

  • Attack

Kelechi Iheanacho - 6/10: The lone striker today didn’t make a lot happen. His interplay with Barnes looked threatening but struggled for opportunities, not ideal for a striker. 

  • Substitutions

Jamie Vardy - 6/10: Vardy had the biggest chance of the game for Leicester with his header slightly off target. He wasn’t too big of nuisance up until the point, but he’s working his way back to full fitness. 

Marc Albrighton - 6/10: He delivered some great crosses into the box and looked to try and find Vardy in good positions. He gave his all and looked to try and make positive attacks.
