To improve their title challenge, Leicester, who began the year with three victories, have now won only once in their last four games and have remained third in the standings with 43 points.
Wolves, who have won once in their last 10 games, were 14th on 27 points, but manager Nuno Espirito Santo saw better results.
“It was an outstanding performance. Nuno said to Sky Sports, “It was a tough game against a good team, we had chances.”
We are trying to stabilize the team so that we can advance. We’ve got plenty of players out there, striving to be lightweight… I’m proud of the way they dedicated themselves to playing in possession of a strong squad.
In the first half, Pedro Neto was busy for Wolves on the left flank, skipping past two defenders twice with ease before making the final pass, but neither chance was taken.
In the first half, Leicester’s in-form James Maddison had just two shots on goal, but his shots were saved from a distance.
With Adama Traore using his pace on the flanks, Wolves began the second half brightly, winning bookings for Caglar Soyuncu and Maddison making attempts to avoid counter-attacks.
When Ruben Neves’ blocked shot fell to Fabio Silva, whose side-footed shot was deflected wide by Kasper Schmeichel’s foot as the goalkeeper tried to deny the Portuguese forward, Wolves almost took the lead from a corner.
“Fabio’s got to do better. He’s young and very talented, but a better finish is important for that moment. We’ll focus on that tomorrow,’ added Nuno.
After a hernia operation, Jamie Vardy made his comeback when he was substituted for the last half hour and the substitution almost yielded a stoppage-time goal for Leicester, but the header of the striker went wide.
