Leicester City kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 0-0 draw against Wolves at The King Power on Sunday.
The Foxes battled hard to secure a point, against a strong Wolves side – who finished 7th in the league last term, earning Europa League qualification.
Wolves did have the ball in the back of the net, however, as Dendoncker swept in from close range. The goal was then disallowed by VAR as it was shown that Willy Boly accidentally handled the ball moments before Dendoncker’s strike.
Brendan Rodgers’ side now face Chelsea next weekend, who are coming into the game off the back of a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United and will be eager to make amends.
Leicester will be hoping to spring another upset and get three points on the board, but what did we learn from their draw?
Here are four things we learned from Leicester’s 0-0 draw with Wolves…
Barnes should come in
Leicester struggled to create chances in the first-half, but looked much brighter after the introduction of Harvey Barnes in the second-half. The young winger injected pace into the Leicester side, which they may need against Chelsea next week.
Soyuncu can be a star this season
With all the talk around Harry Maguire’s departure and no replacement coming in, Soyuncu stepped up and showed that he has what it takes to fill his boots. The young defender was a brick at the back for Leicester.
Maddison needs to be central
Maddison was, arguably, at his best when played in a central role last season – rather than out on the left. He was played out wide by Rodgers against Wolves and he struggled to have an impact on the game. Rodgers could look to play Tielemans and Maddison centrally against Chelsea.
Perez needs time
It’s never easy for a player to hit the ground running at a new club, so it’s fair to say that Ayoze Perez needs time to settle in at Leicester. He didn’t have the best debut, but even settled stars like Jamie Vardy and James Maddison disappointed. In time, he could become a vital member of Leicester’s squad.
