HUNTED: Leicester City football club leave Molineux empty-handed

An out-of-form Leicester City continued their winless run in the Premier League with a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon.

On a blustery afternoon in the West Midlands, Wolves found themselves in front in the ninth minute, with Ruben Neves slamming in the opener from long-range.

Leicester City equalised on the stroke of half-time when Youri Tielemans sliced open the Wolves defence with an inch-perfect pass, allowing Marc Albrighton to square it to Ademola Lookman for a simple finish.

The Foxes came on strong in the second half with chances falling to Tielemans and Albrighton, but it was Wolves who took home all three points after Daniel Podence placed a shot into the bottom corner of the goal.

The result leaves Leicester in 11th place, with a trip to Burnley next up in the league.
