An ice-cold penalty from Raúl Jiménez earned Wolves a point at the last after an impressive performance from Burnley had not only kept the hosts out but at arm’s length for 90 minutes.
VAR confirmed the verdict of the referee, Craig Pawson, that Jiménez had been fouled by Erik Pieters in second-half stoppage time as the pair looked to challenge following a deflected Rúben Neves shot. After the delay the Mexican international stood up, sent Nick Pope down and quietly put the ball in the net.
