Forward Chris Wood wasted a chance to earn all three points for the Foxes, crashing a second-half penalty against the crossbar, but Leicester remain in the play-off places and Pearson was taking the positives after the game.

"When you come to places like this, you've got to deal with the conditions," said Pearson. "On what is an awful pitch, I think the players applied themselves pretty well.

"It's tough, it's not easy, and I thought both teams dealt with the conditions well.

"They've got some good players as well, so you need your players to be committed to what you're trying to do, and I think we had some very good performances out there.

"I was very pleased with how we went about it, I thought we were very solid at the back.

"At the moment we're just not able to convert enough of our chances but I think that, as long as we apply ourselves in the right way, we'll come through that, because I've got a lot of faith in my players.

"That's the first bit of disappointment Chris has had to deal with since he's been here but he's a level headed lad and these things happen.

"We're fractions away at the minute from collecting maximum points in games and that's something that we're going to have to deal with."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
