Emi Martinez: "We knew Mikel would be a good manager when he signed here, but we didn't know he would be this good. He is incredible. He knows how to deal with experienced players, with young players. He gives us a gameplan against anybody and gives us hope when we do the training sessions.''

"He knows what position you have to be in in every department, whether you are a goalkeeper, a striker or a left-winger. And then, when we go into the games, those scenarios we worked on in training actually happen, so we start believing in every word that he says.''

The one thing making the lockdown in the UK better is having Arsenal to watch every few days. Gives you a weird sense of routine trying to catch matches so often.

Fizzing for tonight. If we can win at Wolves away you'd expect us to really be up for it tonight.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.

Finally signed up to the Athletic. Just kept seeing too many Arsenal pieces I wanted to read...

Amy Lawrence, Michael Cox, David Ornstein are probably my favourite football writers (along with football365's Sarah Winterburn), so loving having them all in the one spot. James McNicholas is decent too.

Wee bit pricey though... for the best value you gotta sign up for a whole year and pay US$60 (approx NZ$90) in one hit... if you sign up for 6 months only, you pay the same amount(!), but in 6 instalments.

should be out of sight by now. Laca has fluffed a few chances. But looking very positive. Ceballos is playing some lovely football in the deep lying play maker role.

Great for my tips. Poor for the team. Should have won that by a canter but lucky to hold on in the end.

Still plenty of work to do to get where we want to be, but that first half was excellent, best football we've played in some time.

Nketiah was unlucky but just a little too exuberant there, deserved sending off, hopefully he learns from that one.

We really should've put it to bed in that first half. Plenty to work on, but plenty of positives to take away.

Looking at this I think Auba and everyone is now fighting for the jersey with passion. They want to be there and Arteta has shown if they don't buy into it they'll join Matteo. Compare these faces to someone like Højbjerg who wants to leave his club and just looks bloody miserable on the pitch it convinces me the vast majority of the playing group want to stay on and make stuff happen, its great to see and really positive.

Really gutted we didn't get the three points on reflection, but I'm not letting go of the good vibes coming through in that first half. Dominating possession, patience, waiting for the opportunities, then cutting them to bits. It was wonderful. Pity we couldn't finish one or two more chances and put it to bed, but very positive nonetheless.

We should be kicking ourselves for not taking 3 points there. Nketiah's red opened the door for Leicester when we should have slammed it shut. Bellerin & Lacazette had a couple of cracking chances to put us 2-0 or 3-0 up.

Great shout on the athletic Paulm, I've thoroughly enjoyed it - especially reading without ads!

Especially as Wolves lost this morning.
