Join us for minute to minute coverage of this evening's Premier League match as Wolves host Leicester!

LIVE
90'
FT: Wolves 0-0 Leicester. A frustrating day for both teams but ultimately it will be Leicester who are the happier of the two sides to come out with a point after they had Choudhury sent off midway through the second half. Wolves thought they had the lead late in the first half, only to be denied by VAR, while Jimenez spurned a great chance in stoppage time.
90'
A defensive switch for Leicester as Morgan replaces Barnes.
90'
SAVE! Great goalkeeping from Schmeichel, who reacts sharply to get down and keep out Traore’s effort which looked set to creep in at the near post. Moments later, Soyuncu makes a great block to deny Jimenez. Will we get a winner here?
90'
What a chance! Albrighton's loose header led to a costly corner, which Jimenez glanced wide of the target with an unmarked header from close range! We have entered five minutes additional time.
88'
Chilwell takes a booking after Traore took the ball around him. The foul gives Wolves the chance to get a cross in from a dangerous position on the right wing, though.
85'
Moutinho moves neatly away from Praet before shooting well wide from 25 yards.
81'
Wolves make their third and final change. Moutinho, who was a surprise omission from the starting XI, has replaced Neves.
81'
There was a chance! Traore gets the better of Chilwell and lifts a quality cross back to Jimenez. But the striker seems to jump too early and his header skews over.
80'
Whereas Wolves were crafting chances towards the end of the first half – and of course had a goal disallowed – they have not managed to create much in the way of clear cut opportunities so far since the restart. However, neither have Leicester, and both sides will need to step up the intensity if they wish to turn one point into three.
78'
Wolves look to make their numerical advantage count by making another change. Podence – a January signing – is on in place of Jota.
75'
Choudhury is sent off! The Leicester midfielder is shown his second yellow card of the game after slipping and bringing down Dendoncker. It doesn't look intentional, the player seems quite upset.
75'
Traore has three runs at Chilwell in quick succession, winning a corner with the third. Nothing comes of it.
73'
Traore has three runs at Chilwell in quick succession, winning a corner with the third. Nothing comes of it.
67'
Marc Albrighton replaces Perez for the visitors.
66'
Traore has the chance to make an immediate impact as he picks up the ball in acres of space in the middle and proceeds to drive forward at blistering pace. Leicester’s defence are on their heels but Traore lets himself down with an overhit pass and the attack comes to nothing.
63'
Traore replaces Neto in Wolves' first change of the evening.
62'
Jimenez stands up a dangerous cross to the far post, where Tielemans does superbly to get in front of Dendoncker and head clear. That was an admirable piece of defending.
60'
No penalty! Maddison skips down the left before driving into the area and squaring up Saiss. The defender sticks out a shoulder and does just move into the playmaker, who takes a tumble. Mike Dean dismisses the appeals for a spot-kick, though.
58'
Tielemans’ long-range shot bounces up into the loving embrace of Rui Patricio. Leicester are looking really dangerous now though.
55'
Dendoncker is the next player to be booked after hauling back Barnes on the counter.
51'
A booking for Choudhury, who scythed down Jimenez 20 yards out as the Mexico forward looked to get a shot off.
51'
Better from Leicester! Pereira tries to take matters into his own hands with a wonderful run into the area but, from a tight angle, he slashes at his effort and sends it crashing over.
49'
A cross from Tielemans seems to catch Wolves’ defence out slightly and Perez is almost afforded a free shot at goal. However, he is quickly crowded out and the hosts clear their lines at the second attempt. Meanwhile, Doherty has had to go off the pitch for some more treatment on that cut he sustained in the first half
46'
Back underway!
45'
HT: Wolves 0-0 Leicester. A competitive match for now as no side has managed to dominate completely. A goal by Wolves is ruled offside which means the draw stands. See you in 15!
45'
Ruben Neves is booked for dissent.
44'
The hosts thought they had taken the lead! A corner was worked short and fired back into the penalty for Doherty to head back across goal. Boly was on hand to nod beyond Patricio and into the far corner, but VAR ruled the goal off for a very tight offside...
44'
VAR is checking... There's a possible offside.
43'
GOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!! WOLVES OPEN THE SCORE!!!
40'
What a chance for Neto! The Wolves wideman was presented with a golden opening inside the box, but slashed at the ball and the effort drifted comfortably wide of the target. Schmeichel's poor ball had invited pressure from the hosts, with Neto reacting quickest.
38'
Doherty will continue after lengthy treatment. The subsequent free kick was whipped in towards Saiss, but Evans glanced clear.
36'
Maddison is booked for kicking Doherty in the head. It was accidental, a blind kick at a high ball, and he apologised immediately. Doherty is struggling - he is lying on his side and there’s a lot of blood coming from the top of his head
32'
rdy has cut a very isolated figure for the visitors in the opening half hour of this clash, with just four touches so far from the former England international.
26'
Neves' free kick from distance was poor and blocked by the visitors' wall. Wolves then recycled possession after a mistake from Chilwell, and Jota won a throw-in after being closed down by Tielemans near the left touchline.
23'
Maddison's delivery into the penalty area was superb, but a free header at the back post was held with ease by Patricio!
22'
Pereira raced down the right flank and was felled by the backtracking Jota, with Leicester being awarded a free kick...
21'
Wolves look the more dangerous team, despite their limited possession. Leicester haven’t really got behind the defence
17'
Dendoncker goes for a header after Wolves earn a corner but it's just wide!
15'
After a sluggish start, Wolves have come to life. A contrast in both formation and style is making it a good game.
11'
Neto raced towards the edge of the penalty area and was tackled at the death by Soyuncu. The ball was then worked through for Jota on the left of the box. The Wolves attacker attempted a low drive across Schmeichel, who saved well with an outstretched leg.
6'
Perez's attempted delivery is too powerful and falls towards Barnes on the opposite side of the box. At the other end, Jota tried to smuggle through a pass for Jimenez but Evans reads the danger and intercepts.
3'
It’s been a confident start from Leicester, with some smooth passing and movement. You’d expect them to dominate possession; Wolves won’t mind that.
1'
And we're off in Molineux!
Prev.
Leicester remain unchanged from their 2-2 draw against Chelsea a fortnight ago.
Prev.
The hosts have made two changes this evening - with Adama Traore dropping to the bench and Pedro Neto starting instead. Leander Dendoncker also replaces Joao Moutinho in the centre of midfield.
Prev.
Meanwhile, Wolves will also hold European aspirations of their own, and will be looking for three points after a goalless stalemate with Manchester United before their two-week winter break.
Prev.
Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City are flying high in third spot, and could even jump into second for a few hours if they manage to come out with a victory at Molineux.
Prev.
Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Choudhury, Tielemans, Maddison, Perez, Barnes, Vardy.
Prev.
Wolves starting XI: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Otto, Neto, Jota, Jimenez.
