Ignasi Miquel: Arsenal defender has been frustrated with lack of Leicester chanc

The 21-year-old Arsenal prospect has made just one Sky Bet Championship appearance so far this season due to the form of Wes Morgan and Liam Moore in the centre of the Foxes' defence.

But the Spain Under-21 international has vowed to convince boss Nigel Pearson that he is deserving of a spot in the starting XI on a regular basis.

"This is a very important year for me at Leicester. I have to show to myself and Arsenal what I can do and that I can play," Miquel told the Leicester Mercury.

"It has been a little frustrating because I haven't played many games so far, but I have to be realistic. Both the centre-backs, Wes and Liam, have been fantastic so far.

"You want to be in the team, but you have to be conscious of the fact they have been doing great.

"So I just have to keep training as hard as I can to convince the manager I am good enough to be starting.

"Competition is everywhere. That is football and I just have to prove myself.

"I have try to get as much experience and games as I can. Then I must go back to Arsenal and try to get into the team. That will be very tough but that is what I plan to do."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
