WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) Diogo Jota completed a hat trick in the third minute of stoppage time as Wolverhampton Wanderers snuffed out Leicester's fightback to recover a 4-3 win in the Premier League on Saturday.
Leicester captain Wes Morgan had brought his side level for the second time in the 87th minute with a header that tied the game at 3-3 but Jota still found time to meet Raul Jimenez's cross.
It allowed Wolves to leapfrog Leicester into eighth place in the standings in its first season back in the top flight since 2012.
Jota put Wolves ahead in the fourth minute, volleying into the net from Joao Moutinho's cross. Ryan Bennett headed the hosts further in front in the 12th.
Leicester pulled a goal back two minutes into the second half when Jamie Vardy found Demarai Gray, who skipped past a challenge and drilled the ball into the net. The 2016 champions were level in the 51st when Harvey Barnes, an academy graduate making his first Premier League start, pounced on a loose ball in the box and it deflected off Wolves defender Conor Coady into the net.
Although Jota restored Wolves' lead in the 64th, Morgan's late goal looked to have secured a point for Leicester until the Portuguese midfielder grabbed his third.
"It was erratic, things going wrong all over the place," Bennett said. "We knew it was going to be a tough game."
