The goalkeeper has been in impressive form this season, including a fabulous penalty save on Tuesday night, and his performances has reportedly sparked the interest of Jose Mourinho.

Schmeichel, however, insists that even if there were any truth in the rumours, he would choose to stay in the East Midlands.

"Being mentioned in the same sentence as Real Madrid is an honour, but that's as far as I've heard," said Schmeichel.

"People have been calling me and texting me but I'm not focusing on that.

"I'm very happy here where I'm playing week in, week out and can't ask for more than that."

Leicester's 1-0 victory over Brighton kept them on top of the Championship table, and only their midweek opponents have conceded fewer goals in the division.

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

T

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.
