Terrible screencaps but looks like they gave Ulloa the MOTM award

Regardless of how you feel about the result there’s no denying that this was an entertaining game! However if you’re less than happy with the result then I am a little worried about exactly what you’re expecting from us!

On paper, without seeing the game, you’d take a 1-1 with Arsenal! It’s another case of what they’re aiming for (the league) against us (to stay up) so you can’t be displeased. However, having seen this game you’d be forgiven for wanting a little more than just a point. We had more possession in the second half and I felt we were actually the better team for long spells of it.

I don’t remember Kasper having much to do which is also credit to our defence who I thought were outstanding today. Both centre backs and fullbacks were faultless.

Midfield was my key area before the game and I thought they put in a good shift and ultimately only suffered due to fatigue. Mahrez ran himself out of energy as did Hammond which then subsequently saw King pushing himself too. It was nice to get Drinkwater back on! Talking of players returning…Vardy! Livened up the game straight away. It’s nice to have him back and I feel him and Ulloa could form a very good partnership.

Talking of Ulloa, he deserves a special mention. Today he displayed his all round abilities. Not only was his dangerous and effective up front he did a great amount of work at the back too, both for set pieces and tracking back when we lost the ball.

Another point in the bag, which gives us two and is actually more than I thought we’d get with the three fixtures we’ve played.

My man of the match would have gone to De Laet if I was choosing. Anyone else got a pick?

Thoughts? I’m just going to ignore midweek and say that surely we have to take a lot of heart and confidence from our performance at Chelsea for this one. In my opinion, Chelsea are the better team v Arsenal. Arsenal have fragilities in defence that I can see Ulloa and Nugent capitalising on. However I do see them as incredibly dangerous on the counter and going forward.

Their key man? Ramsey undoubtedly. Though for me it’s also Debuchy whose attacking threat is underrated. Then there’s Sanchez. Let’s face it, this is a huge test but this is our ground. I don’t know, I’m feeling that maybe we could pull a surprise.

I’m already here and just soaking up the atmosphere. Enjoy all!

Admittedly missed this one on the potential transfer radar, but nonetheless welcome Danny Simpson! It’s nice to add to our right side in defence
