One of the most anticipated matches of the Premier League season ended in a scoreless draw on Tuesday night at the King Power Stadium. The result leaves the Foxes level on points with Arsenal at the top of the table. Manchester City sit three points behind in third. All still to play for in the second half of the season for both clubs.

Here was the reaction of Manchester City keeper Joe Hart:

"We’re not where we should be right now in the table, but we’re right in the mix without really playing that well."

"We started the season strongly but we've not been great over the last 12 games or so but we're in a good position and the two teams above us deserve to be there."

"Without doubt, to push on, we need to win - win all our home games and be damned hard to beat in our away games as well.
"We need to take victories where we can and enjoy it with our fans who were fantastic again tonight."

Manager Manuel Pellegrini seemed satisfied with the performance if not the result:

"We did more than Leicester to win the game. We had more possession, more attempts on goal, more clear options but it was a tough game against a very good team playing away.

"I always say if you cannot win, don't lose but I think we did all that we could to try and win the game. We didn't come to try to draw. We spent the whole game going for the three points."

The Blues first clean sheet in almost two months was also welcomed by the manager:

"Yes it's a positive because we were a very consistent and solid team today. We didn't allow them to create options for players like Mahrez and Vardy that are in a very good moment."
