WOLVES' Champions League hopes suffered a blow as they were denied victory over ten-man Leicester by VAR.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side could have moved into the top six with a win over the Foxes, who had Hamza Choudhury sent-off late on, but they were left frustrated after the Molineux stalemate.

Wolves defender Willy Boly thought he had broken the deadlock moments before the break after heading home from a Pedro Neto cross.

He raced off celebrating, but his joy was short-lived as the party-pooping nitpickers at Stockley Park discovered one of Neto's studs was offside as he received the ball prior to teeing up the centre-half.

With news of Manchester City’s two-year European ban breaking before kick off, both teams knew a top five finish would secure a spot in the Champions League next season.

But Wolves failed to close the gap to sit three points behind fifth-placed Sheffield United as Leicester also could not conjurer up a winner to leapfrog them into second ahead of City.

Chances were at a premium throughout with Caglar Soyuncu heading straight at Rui Patricio as he squandered the best opportunity for the visitors.

And Raul Jiminez headed narrowly wide when unmarked from a corner before going on the waste another chance at the death.

Brendan Rodgers’s side were reduced to ten men with quarter of an hour to go.

Midfielder Choudhury received his marching orders after collecting a second caution as he slipped and brought down Leander Dendoncker with his trailing leg.

The result leaves Wolves sat in seventh for now, although Manchester United will overtake them if they avoid defeat at Chelsea on Monday.

Leicester remain third, a point behind City and nine clear of the fourth-placed Blues.
