Leicester 0-0 Arsenal (half time)

The referee and VAR team should hang their heads in shame, after another shocking decision. How could Trossard's opening goal be ruled out? Apparently, White fouled the keeper.

Conveniently, the officials didn't notice the clumsy challenges on Saka. There were two, but the one noticed by everyone was a definite penalty. The officials are homers, it seems.

Nevertheless, Arsenal could have done a bit more to assert their dominance, especially given the absence of Maddison in the Leicester line-up.

Trossard as a false nine, seemed to be working well, and he certainly deserved his goal.

Fellow new boy Jorginho also had an impressive half, keeping things ticking over in midfield.

However, Arsenal will have to up the tempo, if they want to return to north London with all three points.

Ramsdale 6 - quiet day so far
White 6 - his 'foul' cost a goal
Saliba 7 - majestic
Gabriel 8 - clever tackles and blocks
Zinchenko 7 - captain for the day in support of the Ukraine
Saka 6 - not really clicking yet
Odegaard 7 - quick footwork
Jorginho 8 - solid
Xhaka 7 - improving
Martinelli 6 - not much joy
Trossard 8 - tricky
