Arsenal were one good decision away from two defeats on the trot

A meeting of last season’s top two teams served up a stalemate. Entertaining as usual, like last season’s fixtures, this time around the teams failed to find the net. With three yellows being shown and a lack of the final ball, both teams left a lot to be desired. Both the managers though would be pleased with the result, as it allows them to get off the mark in terms of points.

Here are the five biggest talking points from Saturday's late kick-off.

#1 Were Leicester denied by Mark Clattenburg?

The rub of the green very much was in the favour of the Foxes last season, be it in the form of injuries or cards. Here though at the King Power stadium, there were contentious calls which on another day could have been given as an easy penalty. At the end of both halves, there were challenges on Leicester players from the Arsenal defence which on another day could have easily yielded two penalties.

Instead, Clattenburg waved play on. While there were boos for the referee from the home support at the end of the game, there was no clear indication that the referee was appallingly wrong about his decisions. Leicester instead should have made the most of those chances when they did manage to break into the penalty area of the Arsenal half.
