Comments:

League position: 7th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now been involved in four goalless draws in this season in all competitions; two against Leicester City and two against Manchester United. Wolves had now led for a total of 305 minutes in their games in the Premier League so far this season; fewer than any other team. This was the first time they had failed to score in a home game in the Premier League since a goalless draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on 20 April 2019. Wolves had now been involved in consecutive goalless draws in league games for the first time since April 2010 in the Premier League (versus Stoke City and Fulham). Willy Boly scored after 44 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Leicester City had now kept two clean sheets in their last 11 games in the Premier League. Jamie Vardy became the second player to make 200 appearances for the Foxes in the Premier League; also Muzzy Izzet (222). Hamza Choudhury became the first City player to be sent-off since Harry Maguire at Burnley in the Premier League on 16 March 2019. This was the Foxes' first goalless draw in an away game in the Premier League since their visit to Chelsea on 13 January 2018; longer than any other team currently in the division.
