From Arsenal's busy window to the Riyad Mahrez saga, the Exploding Heads run through all the major storylines from the January transfer window.

The Algerian winger failed to secure a move from Leicester City to Manchester City on deadline day.

Having successfully rebuffed approaches for Riyad Mahrez that summer, Leicester City made a promise to Mahrez, vowing to let him leave at the end of the 2016/17 season.

It is not the first time that Mahrez, who played a huge role in inspiring Leicester's remarkable 2015/16 Premier League triumph, has tried to force his way out at the King Power.

Mahrez was ultimately forced to stay at Leicester and has not trained since Tuesday due to his prospective City transfer not going through.

Riyad Mahrez is hoping to become a Manchester City player before the 11pm deadline.

At a press conference, the 56-year-old told reporters: "The club took the decision for the best interest of Leicester, we needed to respect this decision".

"There is perhaps disappointment for Riyad but I think all the players, all the squad will help him to come back".

Mahrez has over two years remaining on his contract at Leicester having signed a new long-term deal with the club in August 2016. It is important now to move on and to keep our focus on the pitch.

On top of that, Mahrez has a Premier League winner's medal, PFA Players of the Year award and African Player of the Year award in his trophy cabinet.

But the Foxes asking price was closer to £80 million (Sh11.5 billion) cash which the Premier League leaders were not willing to pay. They wait for him to be back in the squad because he is a valuable player.

"It's a tough situation for us and all of this is a situation we need to manage but all of the details will stay inside the club".

In all four of those matches backing the away side with a two-goal lead would have paid dividends, so at 13/8 I'm happy to do exactly that in the hope that Huddersfield go to Old Trafford and play just as negatively as they did against Liverpool in midweek.

Without the Algerian, Leicester lost 2-1 to Everton in Wednesday's top-flight encounter at Goodison Park.
