    It's a one match ban for denying a scoring opportunity, unless he's already been sent off this season.

    Could have sworn he is banned for the rest of the season?

    Very odd behaviour from Gray at the end of the game. Whilst the rest of the players were doing an unofficial lap of honour in front of a hundred times more fans that stayed for the one on Saturday, he made his way quite deliberately straight across the pitch and down the tunnel. Presumably he was trying to make a point of some sort

    Enough of this BS about the players going in to business for themselves. Do you seriously think they have been performing badly and losing games deliberately and now decided to play well because they couldn’t get what they want? Mate, please, be serious.

    Or he wasn’t and there was another totally justified reason we don’t know about.

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy said: "Ahead of the game, we wanted to make sure we were passing the ball forward instead of keeping it at the back, and we have done that tonight. It was important to take some momentum into next season and it was our first win against Arsenal since our return to the Premier League. The last penalty I took against Cech, I went the other way, so I thought I would change it up."

    Asked about the supporters' criticism of Claude Puel, Vardy said: "We have got to look at ourselves and the way we have been playing, and it hasn’t been good enough. He wants us to move the ball quicker and we did that tonight.

    Puel said after the match that Gray was ill and he hadn't been sure if he'd make the squad.

    Riyad making me laugh out loud with a piece of sublime skill.

    I’ll miss him terribly. So will the club.

    Something must have been said internally whether that be between the owners and Puel or the players and Puel, because that was chalk and cheese to anything we’ve seen in 2018 and was reminiscent to the glory days of 15/16.

    Choudhury and Silva were both phenomenal and completely bossed the midfield. I’ve not been sure of Silva so far as I think he’s a little lightweight, but against the likes of Arsenal I guess that doesn’t matter so much.

    But let’s not kid ourselves, although we did really well, we were playing against the worst Arsenal team in Premier League history with only 10 men. The amount of space they allowed our front players was incredible. Their defence was just diabolical and the players showed no fight or bottle whatsoever.

    One decent home performance in 4 months changes nothing for me. Puel out.

    Touch of class from us City fans with the standing ovation for Wenger. Not sure it would have happened if we were not winning but classy non the less.

    Best performance in a City shirt to date by Silva and Kelechi and Choudry is surely a first choice pick now.

    As somebody else said, we have now seen City win the top domestic league AND actually beat the Gunners in a league game. Reality finally better than dreams!

    In all seriousness though, what actually happened behind the scenes to make such a stark change in play?

    It was good of Arsenal to actually come here and play football instead of us playing teams with 10 men behind the ball. I have to say that Choudhury played well. I have to ask, would he have been given the chance under any other manager?

    Vards said they'd talked about releasing the ball quicker - pleasure to watch Diabate in particular, maybe they listened to Puel for once.

    What I’m getting at is that I believe yesterday is only just above the average in terms of how we are capable of playing week in, week out.

    Puel looked pleased with how we played as did the players so what is the key point to effect the change?

    Well yes, because the injury crisis would have been the same. Do you think he’d have been given a chance if we weren’t down to the bare bones in central midfield?
