They've done a great job, in any other season where the regular boys ran away with it, they've probably be 12 points further back and looking good for a UEFA cup spot and this seen as a success. They've been consistent and basically consistently took points off the big teams, they definitely deserve whatever they get, CL spot looks a cert.

I'm not so sure. Leicester have been top of the league virtually the entire season. They've only lost three games all season so it's not as if anyone else would be miles ahead of them.

That is what I was thinking,I hate it when other supporters belittle their acheivement and seems like jealousy to me on their part.

I would not get too carried away lads as one of the goals was a horrible deflection as the keeper had it covered so it should have been a 2-2 draw. and I would say that if it was the other way around.
Lucky we played such an insipid Arsenal side. Bottlers as usual.

Arsenal were awful. Ozil's goal was fortunate. Fair result.

Agree they deserve to be there but they haven't been top virtually the whole season. They were top the first 3 weeks, then weren't top again till after 16 weeks. They went up and down between 1st and second for a few weeks, then have stayed top for the last few weeks.

All told they've been top for about half the season - which is still incredible. If they win the league, it'll be the biggest achievement in the uk for decades.

Yes they will falter later by losing/drawing games instead of winning them.

Arsenal were beaten by one goal and that was due to an horrible deflection
as it would have ended 2-2.

You're totally blinkered if you thought we were lucky to win that game. We were the better team on the day and, I have to say, Arsenal were quite poor.

...Wellbeck was your only decent player and that's 'cos he learnt his trade with us! I don't know why he has a big reputation but Walcott is hopeless!

...you just don't seem to have what it takes to win a title anymore do you

Yes Arsenal were poor.

Man utd they can be very poor and still grind out a win somehow (normally because the opposition were crap )

Take away a deflective goal and it would have been 2-2,had Man Utd won the game 4-2 then I would not argue with that but it was not that score.

...take away the deflected goal which made it 3-1 and the game would not have played out the same way...therefore you cannot say that Arsenal would have scored at all so United would have won 2-1
