A foul on Billy Sharp gave Simon Cox the chance to level the scores inside the final 25 minutes and left Leicester boss Nigel Pearson to lash out at officials for a decision he thought was dreadful.

"I can see why the referee gave it, but in my view it was not a penalty," said O'Driscoll.

"I was tearing my hair out throughout the game and to be honest about it, we were lucky today. We have not got what we deserved in some of the games this season, but today we were fortunate to get a point.

"We got lucky and I hope it is another 20 games before we play like that again. We have played a lot better than that and come off losing matches.

"So we are thankful for the result but it is back to the drawing board as regards the performance. I don't think it was a penalty but I cannot go on the pitch saying, 'Don't give it me'.

"Referees are always going to make mistakes. It is part and parcel of the game. This is a difficult place to come at the best of times, and we did not perform today.

"But we got something out of it and have to make sure we learn lessons from it."

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.
