These are the best Nigel Pearson choke jokes after the Leicester City manager reacted to being clattered by James McArthur, appearing to have his hands around the neck of the Crystal Palace player at one point.


A key talking point as the two lower-placed Premier League rivals battled it out at the King Power Stadium was Pearson’s seemingly aggressive response after McArthur fell into the technical area and into the back of the coach.

The Palace midfielder, who kept his cool throughout the incident, seemed to have his shirt pulled by the manager after being grabbed around the throat.
