Good evening

Right then, that's us pretty much wrapped up here. 

There's plenty still going on for you to keep across though - like our feast of Olympic live steams, all over here.

Until the next time, be seeing you.

MOTD running order

Burnley v Liverpool is first up on Match of the Day. Watch Gary Lineker explaining why and giving the rest of the running order.


'I'm sorry he didn't cost £55m'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

In his post-mach press conference Arsene Wenger's being asked about new signings. 

He's going over the same point he made quite bullishly on Friday. 

"It's not just about spending the money. We are ready to spend the money but we have to find players who will improve our team.

"Nobody speaks about the performance of Rob Holding today - he is English, he is 20 years old, you should be happy. But I am sorry he didn't cost £55m. 

"We don't speak about the performances anymore and I think that is not right."

Adeel Ejaz: Leicester have got to take the chances and win against these small teams if they want to defend their title...

Abdul Said: Leicester will make another history this year by finishing at least in the last 4 of the CL. 

John McNamara: 4th, 3rd, 2nd. A team going backwards.

'I wouldn't go down if there wasn't a touch...'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater went down under a challenge from Laurent Koscielny just before the end of the first half - the fans wanted a penalty. 

Should it have been?

"I wouldn't go down if there wasn't a touch - there was obviously some contact but the ref's not given it so I can't complain," Drinkwater says.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

So Leicester's wait for a victory over Arsenal goes on - they haven't beaten the Gunners in their last 20 league games (D6 L14).

This was certainly an improvement on last season's 5-2 defeat at the King Power Stadium, but there's a sense they left it all too late.  

They didn't manage a shot on target until the 92nd minute...

'Leicester aren't champions for no reason'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger speaking to BT Sport:

"We wanted to win the game. We gave absolutely everything to win the game. It was a game of high intensity. After conceding four goals we produced a great defensive performance. Leicester were not champions for no reason, they were well organised.

On the incident which saw Danny Drinkwater go to ground in the penalty area under the challenge:

"I have to watch the incident again in slow motion. 

On the incident which saw Ahmed Musa fall in the box under the challenge of Hector Bellerin:

"Leicester are good at provoking in the box, they got many penalties last year."

On possible transfers:

"I'm a bit fed up to say the same thing, like we do not want to spend. We analyse everything and then make the right signings.

On clubs spending big money:

"What matters to me is that you have 600 employees and can afford to pay them."

'A positive game'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

More from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "Mesut Ozil is not completely ready yet to cope with the physicality of the game - that is why we have to be a bit careful with him.

"We made many chances against a team that defends very well. Overall we still lack a little bit in our decision making and in the final ball but that will come. It's a positive game."  

On the penalty appeals: "I have to watch it on slow motion, Petr Cech told me at half-time that the first was not a penalty, the other on Musa, I would have to watch it again."

'We could have lost it or won it'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think overall it was a good performance, a good match between two good teams. It was a game of top level intensity and I believe we responded well to last week's disappointment. 

"Leicester are a good team - they did not win the league and only lose three games last season for nothing. We had to fight until the end. We could have lost or won it in the last 20 minutes. We wanted to win the game and we finished with five attacking players on the pitch."

'Our fans will be happy'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

More from Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, speaking to BBC Sport: 

"I am very happy. We didn't concede, we closed very well all the space and created clear chances to score. It was a draw but I think our fans enjoyed the match. Jamie Vardy scored against Manchester United, and he works so hard, I am happy with him." 

On the penalty appeals: "Difficult to say. My philosophy is it's a penalty when the referee blows his whistle and that's it."

On the injury suffered by Nampalys Mendys: "I don't know how bad. the ankle twists a little, tomorrow we will see."

'I don't want to talk about the penalty box incidents'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri speaking to BT Sport:

"The penalty is when the referees whistle. I think it was a good match. They kept a lot of possession but we created clear chances. They were dangerous, but not clear chances. I am very proud of my players because they fight so well.

"I don't want to speak about the decisions. The manager makes mistakes, the referees make mistakes, the players make mistakes.

It was imporant to keep a clean sheet. 

On this week's Champions League draw: "We are new in the Champions League. It will be a very new experience."

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri is in a much more positive mood. Positively bouncing. Full quotes to come.

Brace yourself...

giles brooks: Splash the cash Wenger: your teams going backwards - yet again!

Jonny Joy: Average. Awful. Arsenal.

Alex Maguire: This is basically the same Arsenal team for the 3rd season in a row, they are so predictable and stagnant Wenger has to go!

'Much more like us'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Leicester defender Robert Huth on BT: "It was tense in the first half, gloves off in the second. Last week it was difficult, you never quite know what form you are going to hit, this was much more like us. Hopefully we'll play a lot more like that."

On the penalty appeals:

"It's difficult for me to comment but once you get in the box you tend to appeal for any sort of decision. Today it wasn't our day."   

'I don't think it was a penalty'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscileny on BT Sport:

"Each player did the job well defensively. Leicester played very well in the counter-attack. We came back with a point. 

"I think I toed the ball a little (when Danny Drinkwater fell in the box in the first half). I don’t think it was a penalty."

'Clean sheet was vital'

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal defender Rob Holding speaking to BT Sport: "We wanted a clean sheet after conceding four goals last week. It was vital. Hopefully next week we can build on this, score some goals and win a game."

On the penalty appeal when Ahmed Musa went down: "I think he went down hoping for it. I think it was the right decision."  

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Well not exactly a thriller. Boos from the home fans - presumably they think they could have had two penalties. I reckon both would have been soft.

The Arsenal players head across to their travelling supporters and Jamie Vardy's finally in Arsenal colours - he swaps his shirt with I couldn't catch who.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

It's Drinkwater, hit into the wall, it bounces up and falls to a Leicester man but the flag's up for offside. Arsenal are safe - and Mark Clattenburg blows up.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

This is danger town for Arsenal. This could be the last kick of the game. 

Mahrez or Drinkwater to win it.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Riyad Mahrez drives into the box and forces a brilliant save from Petr Cech.

Ahmed Musa can shoot as the rebound falls kindly but elects to pass - a waste!

Free-kick on the edge for Leicester... Rob Holding goes in the book.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

There are three minutes for somebody to find a winner...

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Jack Wilshere settles things down, looks to play in Mesut Ozil but the pass is loose and Leicester are back with it. 

The momentum's shifting... But there is any time?

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Ahmed Musa is all over this - what an impact - he delivers a dangerous cross that is desperately cleared by a diving Arsenal head.


Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Ahmed Musa travels inside the box along Hector Bellerin's blind side and goes down in the box - huge roar, waved away.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Claudio Ranieri still fancies it. Ahmed Musa comes on - a fresh engine in attack with Marc Albrighton coming off.

Leicester's Mark Albrighton

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Mesut Ozli is everywhere, floating in between the lines to pop up in combination with anyone who's around - Alexis Sanchez usually. 

As we head into the final stages will we see another big chance?

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Another Arsenal corner after Mesut Ozil is played in on a tight angle by Alexis Sanchez - Kasper Schmeichel comes across to close the angle and block with his legs. 

Robert Huth then clears a cross inside his own six-yard box, out for a throw... 

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal are knocking on the door here. 

But Jamie Vardy's lurking in the deep down the other end, he turns Rob Holding inside out and has a shot blocked by Francis Coquelin. Petr Cech can gather. 

This game is getting streeeetched... Just over five to go. 


Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Double danger for Leicester! Jack Wilshere flicks a cross that bounces all the way across goal before being dealt with by Danny Simpson at right-back. 

Wes Morgan then closes down Theo Walcott who's about to shoot from just inside the area - shuts him out like an NBA star defending the hoop - and the ball cannons behind for a corner, which is cleared. 

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Danny Drinkwater's cross from the right is too deep for Jamie Vardy - it just needed to be stood up for him and there was space in the Arsenal box to attack. 

There's been a real lack of quality when it counts from both sides so far today.   


Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

When Arsenal play it flows like water. But with Mesut Ozil at the pump it strangely all goes wrong - his over-hit pass lets Leicester off. 

Another change for the Gunners - Olivier Giroud comes on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Dice rolled.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Just under 15 minutes to go now. Who wants this? Will either step up to steal it or are we headed for a draw?

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Theo Walcott tests Kasper Schmeichel's gloves at the end of a move started by Mesut Ozil's bewitching turn. 

It was safe for the Leicester keeper - not enough power or direction on it. But signs of the openings appearing?..


Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

A double change for Arsenal. Four new legs in midfield. 

Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil enter the fray, Granit Xhaka and Santi Cazorla making way.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Rob Holding now with an awkward touch that almost lets Jamie Vardy in - Granit Xhaka's lunging challenge to the rescue. 

The Gunners back four are in self-destruct mode. 


Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Real danger for Arsenal. Jamie Vardy is through on goal after a mistake by Laurent Koscielny - but blazes over the bar... 

Koscielny was dallying on the ball and was robbed by Marc Albrighton. Last season, that is a certain goal. 

What were we saying about the mental block of Vardy playing the team he turned down this summer?

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Brilliant from Kasper Schmeichel! A diving header to nick the ball off Alexis Sanchez's toe - the Chile forward was clean through. 

Straight out of the Manuel Neuer school.

A change up top for Leicester sees Japanese paceman Shinji Okazaki replaced by the burly Leonardo Ulloa.

Leicester's fans are sensing something here - their team is finally applying some pressure to Arsenal but The Gunners are standing firm.

There is a greater intensity about The Foxes' play but just once or twice Arsenal have threatened to catch them on the break with pace.

Very, very finely balanced.

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Sometime sparkle-merchant Alexis Sanchez is usually your go-to man for the kind of moment that can turn a game, but his over-hit pass puts Hector Bellerin in real trouble - the Arsenal right-back has to concede a throw-in with a sliding block. 

There's a rainbow overhead. I'm trying to think if that's a sign this game's set to improve...
