Viewers slam referee for sending Nuno to the stands during stunning late Wolves winner

Viewers have slammed referee Chris Kavanagh for sending manager Nuno Espirito Santo to the stands as Diogo Jota secured a late Wolves win over Leicester City.

It was certainly an exciting match which saw Jota score the first of the match after four minutes before Ryan Bennett doubled the scoreline nine minutes later, heading in from a corner.

Leicester hit back after half time, Demarai Gray running at the defenders and managed to finish brilliantly to get the Foxes back in the game.

On the 50th minute, Harvey Barnes completed a quick comeback four minutes after Gray’s, his shot hitting Conor Coady on the way.

Diogo Jota grabbed another half way through the second half after a stunning 50 yard pass from Ruben Neves to make it 3-2.

Five minutes from time and Wes Morgan grabbed Leicester’s second equaliser of the match by heading in from close range.

The drama didn’t stop there as Wolves continued to push on, Jota got a winner and completed his hat-trick, with a calming tap in to created scenes inside Molineux.

So much so that Wolves boss Nuno legged it up the touchline and celebrated with his players before getting sent off.

Jamie Carragher spoke of the situation and questioned the referee’s decision: “What for? Celebrating with his players? Behave yourself.”
