We smashed them away, and I think we'll beat them again. 3-1 Arsenal.

Massive game for Arsenal. If they lose this then their title challenge is over.
If we lose though, we're still top. That relieves some of the pressure, if there was any. Since our last metting we've gotten better at the back with Schlupp out of the side and Fuchs being an actual fullback.
It'll be interesting to see if Walcott is given a go up front against us. He was the man up top last time and he scored Arsenals opening goal to level things, but he's nto had a run in teh side for a while and hasn't played as a striker either with Giroud seeing some decent form. Also interested if he plays Mert over Gabriel. The former hasn't got the pace to deal with Vardy but if they can do a job on Mahrez like last time then he might not need to as much.
Like last time we play the perfect game for Arsenal because we play an open game which played into their hands, but I don't see why we would change it. It's worked more often than not, so we'll just look to play our usual way and if Arsenal are on it then we could be in trouble. If we take the lead though it'll be interesting to see how the crowd reacts. When we took the lead before we were at home, there was still plenty of time left in the game and nobody looked at us as the threat we are now.
So after that essay, Arsenal 1-3 Leicester.

*That's fucking dirty WC!

This is a tough one to call. I expect Arsenal to put up more of a fight than (Manchester) City managed, though.

It really does not matter if Arsenal wins this one tbh. They are not good enough to win the title this season. Leicester will still be top and remain there. Only Spurs will challenge them.

Cause there is three matches on Sky today, this, Villa v Liverpool (the lettuce in the Super Sunday BLT according to Stelling :lol: ) and then the City v Spurs match lastly. Barca on tonight as well, happy days, though I may be in a mood if Villa turn over Liverpool which could happen! :D

If Arsenal had Kante they would be walking the league, marvellous player. He is breaking up everything and also regularly beating Arsenal's right wing when in possession. Great game so far. Leicester = guaranteed entertainment.

Amazing. It's like Leicester are under a spell or something, absolutely baffling.

Stonewall penalty as well.

Shite refereeing. Foul from Morgan earlier in that phase of play.

Fucking yes. :D

Correct decision to give the penalty, but arsenal should have had a free-kick at the other end. Crazy counter attack with Koscielny also delivering a brutal tackle on Kante.

Arsenal have put in three or four really rough tackles this first half.

Definite penalty, you're asking for Olympic level gymnastics from Vardy if he's getting out of the way there.

One of those penalties where the ref's equally correct to give or not to give it. You can make arguments both ways about it.

Sets the stage real nice for the second half.

Koscielny's tackle on Kante looked almost a red.

Speaking of Kante, he's been unreal. My favorite player to watch in this Leicester team.

Monreal's tackle didn't hit Vardy, though. Vardy pretty much ran into Monreal - is he supposed to disappear into thin air? Then again, the defender's leg was kind of obstructing there. Like I said, a 50-50 decision.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Referees buying wholesale into the fairytale it seems.

It's Jamie Vardy, of course he played for the penalty. He's been doing it his whole career.

Arsenal lucky not to concede another penalty.

Leicester down to 10 men.

Mahrez should have won another penalty, don't think Arsenal can feel aggrieved any more. Monreal is going to get sent off if he has to face Mahrez or Vardy running at him for the rest of the game.

And as I say that, Simpson goes off. Silly, silly move. Could cost Leicester hugely in the grand scheme of things. Referee seems pretty desperate to give into the pressure from the Arsenal players and fans at half-time. Simpson is a bit of a weak-link if Leicester have one.

Mahrez off...lame. Referee has lost control of this game.

Should have been a red card for that challenge.
