Goodbye
       Wolves miss out on the chance to close the gap on the top four as they are held to a goalless draw by 10-man Leicester City amid more VAR controversy.

       We are back on Saturday for two more Premier League games.
       Until then.

'We showed we can dig in'
       FT: Wolves v Leicester
       Leicester City
       Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "I thought we deserved a point. They are always a threat on the counter. It was impressive for us to keep a clean sheet with 10 men.
       "We probably could’ve been quicker around the attack - the build-up play was good - but away from home you expect to come under pressure and it ends up being a very good point and keeping the gap to 14 points between us.
       "Jonny Evans was immense. His reading of the game was outstanding. You need your centre-half to be strong."
       "It was always going to be a tough game but we needed that.
       "We also showed we are a team that can dig in when we need to, not just good at passing, so that gets us going for the final 12 games."
       On the VAR decision: "I think his big toe was offside! It’s unfortunate. We’re disappointed to give the corner away. We've had a number that have gone for and against and you just have to keep the team calm.
       "I didn't think it was a red card for us, so it's unfortunate."

'VAR is part of us'
       FT: Wolves 0-0 Leicester
       Wolves
       Wolves' boss Nuno Espirito Santo, speaking to BT Sport: "We played well, we created lots of chances in the second half and we scored in the first hald and it was a good.
       "We had clear chances. We controlled and created more than their team: crosses, shots and set-pieces. So we keep going."
       On the VAR decision: "It’s part of us now. We just have to get used to it.
       "The ref said it was offside but I don't know what advantage he takes from that?
       "We have to get used to it and hope it improves. They have to improve, it’s obvious. I'm sure they will do it."
       On whether Wolves have had too many draws: "I'm worried about the creating and finishing but we did score. Leicester is a quality side. It doesn’t stop and Thursday will be a tough challenge."

'We are in danger of becoming robots'
       Wolves 0-0 Leicester
       Wolves
       Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo tells BBC Sport: "It is not about frustration but realising what we did in the game and now analyse to say 'we could (have won)'. Leicester had possession in the first half but did not create, we scored in the first half and dominated a very good team. The boys created many chances but it requires more work from us to complete the actions.
       "It is reality now but each time it happens it upsets you. When you see the images, there is not a clear advantage but the law is the law. I am positive about the reaction of the professionals and the fans, but something has to be done. Let those who understand do something to have the joy of celebrating. We in danger of becoming robots.
       "Raul Jimenez was there, (it will happen for him) in the next game. The workrate he did was amazing. He did not put it inside the net but his it is amazing how he works and creates for the team. We go again on Thursday and hope things will happen.
       "I saw a lot of energy from the players and this is what I am happy about, we are ready for the tough cycle."

'Sending off was harsh'
       FT: Wolves 0-0 Leicester
       Leicester City
       Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers talking to BT Sport:
       "It was similar to the first game, we dominated, played very, very well. Then with 20 mins with 10 men, we had to show a different courage to stop their threat.
       (On the sending off: "To keep a clean sheet is very pleasing. I didn’t think the first one was a yellow, Hamza gets a slight touch and Jimenez comes onto his shin. Felt he was unfortunate.
       "It is the game now, his little toe was offside. They will feel it was harsh. I was particularly pleased with the team. When we had to show the grit and determination we did."

'I don't understand VAR decision'

       Wolves
       Wolves' Conor Coady speaking to BT Sport: "It felt cruel at there place and it felt cruel tonight as well.
       "We played great football, we gad a game plan to stop their threat and it worked for us to then create chances.
       On the VAR decision: "I don't want to speak too much, I've spoken before it doesn’t really get you anywhere.
       "I’ve said before, we should’ve won the game, I don't understand the decision and I don't think anyone else does.
       "We should've won. They’ve got a brilliant manager and players, but we kept going and we’ll take a point.
       "Jamie Vardy is a brilliant player, you’ve got to concentrate for 90 minutes. It’s important to take the positives from the games.
       On Manchester City's ban: "It’s not something we’re thinking about. We’re not looking too far ahead and we’ll just keep playing the games."

       Since joining Leicester, Jamie Vardy has played more league games against Wolves without scoring than any other side (six games).

       I just feel like this is the year for Wolves to try and get Champions League football. The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea will be stronger next year and I think this is two points dropped unfortunately with Leicester going down to ten men.

       Wolves looking for the Adama Traore outlet again and the big man almost pays dividends, cutting onto his left peg but smacking a shot straight at Kasper Schmeichel.
       Then Traore feeds Raul Jimenez, but the striker's goalbound shot is brilliantly blocked by Caglar Soyuncu.

       These decisions like we've seen can make all the difference. We've talked about VAR in many decisions this season but the one tonight is like nothing we've seen, so there'll be a lot of talking points after the game. The Wolves fans at half-time were certainly not happy.
