Leicester City beat Wolverhampton in an all-Premier League tie which ended in penalties after a goalless draw in the Carabao Cup.

Former Liverpool stopper Danny Ward was the hero of the match as he made three penalty shoot-out saves as Leicester won 3-1.

Leicester commanded the first half of the game, but their end product was poor managing only two misses from Adrien SilvaThe Foxes dominated the opening stages with 75% of the ball. They eventually came close near the end of the first half, Rachid Ghezzal‘s shot was cleared off the line by Conor Coady.

After the break, Wolves advanced considerably and came close to scoring when Ivan Cavaleiro forced Danny Ward to tip an attempt over the bar from a tight angle. Wolves then had a chance which they should have converted when Cavaleiro missed from eight yards out after he was released by Leo Bonatini’s well-placed through-ball. Soon after, an unsettled spell of defending from Leicester allowed 18-year-old Morgan Gibbs-White to fire a free shot right into Ward’s hands.

Progressing as an end-to-end game by the minute, the match somehow ended goallessly. 

Danny Ward was remarkable throughout the 90 minutes but it was in the penalty shoot-out which followed when he stepped up into the next level. The 25-year-old made two decent saves to keep out Romain Saiss and Diego Jota. However, the job was not done as Christian Fuchs hit the bar and Hamza Choudry failed to score from the spot.

The Leicester stopper produced his best save to deny Adama Traore‘s strong drive. The match ended with Iheanacho firing home the winning penalty-kick, as he waited for John Ruddy to move before slotting the ball into the other corner, to take his side into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

Both the teams return to the Premier League on Saturday, 29th September. Wolves face Southampton while Leicester faces Newcastle.
