Demarai Gray Injury

The all-Premier League meeting between Wolves and Leicester City was a painful watch for many as the game ended 0-0, with Leicester eventually winning on penalties.

However, Foxes forward Demarai Gray was in even more pain as he was stretchered off with a suspected broken ankle. The Englishman received gas and air on the pitch in stoppage time and many expected the worst.
