Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri believed that the champions deserved the victory over Arsenal on Saturday, as they were held to a scoreless draw.
The Foxes had a slew of chances, especially in the second half, but failed to find the back of the net against the Gunners at the King Power Stadium.
It was the first point of the season for the defending champions as they suffered a surprise loss to newcomers Hull City in the season opener. Ranieri thought they played a lot better on Saturday, but was left disappointed that they didn’t get all three points.
“It was a good performance, the result is good but we deserved a little more I think,” Ranieri told the club’s official website after the game. “Okay, they kept more possession and were very dangerous but not with a clear chance.
“We kept less possession, we know this, but we created a lot more clear chances to win the match. It was unlucky. But I am very happy for the effort, the spirit and the union of the team.
“Our edge and our spirit. I watched our spirit and it was a very good performance. I am very happy against a very good team.”
Leicester captain Wes Morgan saw the draw as a step in the right direction.
“We wanted to improve on our performance from last week and I think we did that,” Morgan said.
“We showed the grit and determination that we expect of ourselves. We could have won the game, but it’s a good performance and a step in the right direction.”
