Some Wolves fans are not happy following controversial N'Golo Kante handball incident

Wolves today drew 0-0 with Chelsea in the Premier League – but some fans are not happy about a handball decision involving N’Golo Kante.

In the first-half, goalkeeper Jose Sa had the ball and spotted Daniel Podence up near the halfway line ready for a possible counter-attack.

The 28-year-old punted the ball forwards, and the kick was heading to Blues midfielder Kante.

Then, the ball hit the Frenchman’s arm.

Had the ball gone past Kante, Podence would have been through on goal against Edouard Mendy.

Despite huge shouts from the Molineux crowd, referee David Coote allowed play to continue and VAR upheld the on-field decision.

Frustratingly, Kante went on to have a really good game for the visitors.

Had he got sent off, the game could have been completely different.

The incident will sting even more for Wolves supporters, who saw Joao Moutinho penalised for a handball that should never have been against Manchester City.

In that game, referee Jon Moss awarded a penalty for the hosts, which Raheem Sterling scored to take all three points.

Some feel that he should definitely have been penalised by way of a red card, since he was the last man.

Podence would have been in the clear had the ball skipped through.
