Jamie Vardy scores as Leicester go top of the Premier League

Leicester City moved to the top of the English Premier League table after a laboured 1-0 win over Wolves at the King Power Stadium on Sunday. 

Jamie Vardy scored the all-important goal in the 15th minute from the spot, after Max Kilman was harshly penalised for a handball in the box.

The hosts got the chance to add a second, yet again from the spot, in the 39th minute, but Vardy's kick was expertly saved by Rui Patricio. 

The second half was largely flat, with few chances between the two sides. 

Max Kilman wasted a huge opportunity after receiving a fine cross from the free-kick, but his close-range shot went well over the crossbar.

Ruben Neves came close in the 77th minute after latching on to a precise defence-splitting pass and fired a nice strike from a promising distance towards the top right corner. 

The win saw Leicester move to the top of the table on 18 points, one above Tottenham, who picked a 1-0 win away to West Brom.
