Leicester City beat Wolves 1-0 in Premier league: Premier League points leaderboard has 3rd leader in the last 2 days. Leicester City has now gone on top of the Premier League points table after beating Wolves 1-0.
Just an match ago, Totthenham Hotspur had taken the top position in the Premier League points pushing Southampton down. But now Leicester City has pushed Spurs down and has taken the top position in the Premier League points table.
Leicester City went top of the Premier League, if only for a few hours, after a highly contentious penalty by Jamie Vardy was enough to beat Wolves at King Power Stadium. Vardy took his tally for the season to nine goals after sending Rui Patricio the wrong way, with Wolves’ players incensed the spot-kick was given after Max Kilman handled Dennis Praet’s cross.
Wolves claimed Kilman had no time to move his hand out of the way but referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot after consulting the pitchside monitor.
Leicester replace Tottenham, who beat West Brom earlier in the day to go top, at the summit, two points ahead of Liverpool who are playing Manchester City and can now overtake Leicester with win.
