The Foxes had plenty of possession and chances but lacked the killer touch as their hopes of promotion suffered another blow.

Pearson said: "I think the biggest thing today was that we looked a side having a bit of a crisis of confidence at the minute.

"I can't fault the players for their efforts, but we were not fluid and didn't solve the problems Wednesday gave us. They came with a solid foundation and things didn't quite go our way for a number of reasons.

"Our creativity is not quite there but I don't think there is a fear factor there. We are not a defensive team and we are creating opportunities, but not taking them.

"We are a bit inconsistent and unfortunately for us at the moment it is not just quite happening.

"But I have a strong belief in these players and the collective spirit is going to serve you better than the individual approach.

"We looked nervy at times and at this stage of the season you don't really want that. We have got to keep our nerve."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
