Arsene Wenger was pleased with Arsenal’s clean sheet in the 0-0 draw at Leicester but felt his side did enough to win the game.

The Gunners were looking to get a first win under their belts after losing 4-3 against Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

Arsenal lacked a cutting edge against the Premier League champions despite dominating possession with Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil testing goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel but rarely threatening to break through.

Wenger felt they should have picked up three points, but the defensive aspect of their play pleased him.


“I wanted to win the game,” he said. “It was a game of high intensity where both teams gave absolutely everything.

“I believe when you conceded four goals last week, we have shown a great defensive performance and overall we created chances to win it but you could see that they are not champions for no reason.

“It’s a team which is well organised and it’s very difficult to create chances.”

Leicester felt they should have been awarded two penalties and Wenger added: “It’s very difficult to know. You have to watch it again in slow motion and see what really happened.

“Leicester is very good at provoking in the box – they got many penalties last year – so you never know if it is really a penalty or not.”
