Psychologists will tell you that delaying gratification can be a powerful thing. Famously, the Stanford marshmallow experiment found that children who could resist eating a sweet treat in return for the promise of a greater reward at a later point went on to achieve better exam results at school.
A point and clean sheet against Arsenal was a sensational result for Leicester City. If the Foxes weren't defending Premier League champions, Saturday's 0-0 draw would feel like a win. The stalemate was every bit as intense and entertaining as last season's 5-2 loss to the Gunners, as Claudio Ranieri's men got their first point of the new season on the board.
As fate would have it Leicester City's first home game of the season is against Arsenal -- the side who did the double over the Foxes last season, finished second to them and perhaps most pertinently, spent the summer hotly pursuing Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
Max Rushden continues in the hot-seat for this edition of Football Weekly Extra, and he's got James Horncastle , Paolo Bandini and Nick Miller for company.

In the five years since Germany overtook Italy in Uefa's rankings, stealing a Champions League berth away from clubs on the peninsula, pundits have pontificated at length on the lessons that Serie A might learn from the Bundesliga.
Leicester City were quite simply out-foxed by newly promoted Hull City on Saturday. The 2-1 loss will serve as a reality check. The suspended Robert Huth was missed with City looking brittle at the back while, at the other end, Jamie Vardy was uncharacteristically goal-shy.
While it seems like ages ago now, Gary Lineker made a promise back in December 2015. Indeed, with Leicester City sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League, Lineker made the audacious pledge to present the first Match of the Day programme of the 2016-17 season in his underwear, safe in the knowledge that there was absolutely no chance his beloved Foxes would actually go on to win the thing.
The Premier League is back in action as Pep Guardiola makes his debut as Manchester City manager at home to Sunderland. Please refresh for latest updates. 17.30 BST: Sunderland kick off shooting right to left, both teams in their home strips. 17.27 BST: The teams are out, the handshakes are done and we're just moments from kick-off.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri was magnanimous in defeat, conceding that the better team won as Hull beat the Foxes 2-1. Robert Snodgrass' strike in the 57th minute grabbed all three points for the Tigers despite having only 13 fit senior players for the game and meant Leicester became the first Premier League champions to lose the opening game of their title defence.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
