Leicester 0 Arsenal 0: Foxes have late penalty appeal rejected in bore draw

21 Aug

The Footballer of the Year, who rejected a move to the Emirates after Arsenal met a £20million buy-out clause in his contract, was wasteful at Hull last weekend.

And last night he missed the best chance of the match, shooting wide when in the clear.

That guaranteed a stalemate which at least gave both sides their first point of the season.

And it might have been more for Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri in his 100th match as a Premier League manager, as his side were denied a clear penalty two minutes from time.

Substitute Ahmed Musa went down after tangling with Hector Bellerin but failed to win a spot-kick.

If the Foxes went into their first home match of the season with an inferiority complex, despite being the champions, it was understandable.
