Schmeichel proud to be part of the Leicester 'family'

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral gets underway in Thailand

Leicester players and fans paid tribute to late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in emotional scenes following the Foxes' 1-0 win over Cardiff.

Leicester returned to action for the first time since Srivaddhanaprabha and four others were killed in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium last weekend.

"It's disappointing, when you are 1-0 up late on you should see it out and we didn't manage to do that", James Milner, who scored the opener, told BT Sport.

An elaborate funeral began yesterday for Thai billionaire and Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died last week when his helicopter crashed in a vehicle park next to the English Premier League club's stadium.

Leicester City players have arrived in Thailand for the funeral of the club's owner, who died in a helicopter crash.

After the final whistle, Leicester's players and staff stood to applaud their fans for several minutes, taking in the chants of "Vichai" and "Champions of England, you made us sing that".

Unfortunately the gesture saw him cautioned - a player removing a shirt leads to a yellow card under the game's laws.

Kasper Schmeichel has emotionally revealed how he waved off Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in his helicopter from the King Power Stadium pitch before watching it crash in a vehicle park.

During the pre-match warm-up, Leicester players wore T-shirts with an image of Vichai's face and the words "The Boss".

Billionaire Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was laid to rest at a VIP service in Thailand - as his team held a silence at their first game since the tragic death a week ago.

Kasper Schmeichel ran the length of the pitch to join in the celebrations in front of the away supporters. "It is a good balance between emotion and concentration which is hard, now is just the first step and I hope we can continue next week with the same feeling", he said.

Yet, this is no ordinary season with three unbeaten teams at the top of the table and Manchester City showing no signs of a drop in standard from their record-breaking 100 point campaign last term.

Premier League referee Lee Probert's decision to book Demarai Gray for taking his shirt off in celebrating his victor for Leicester City against Cardiff City has provoked a storm of criticism. He used to come down at home games, have a joke and a laugh, always say, 'Want win and three points.' We did that today. "We were very lucky to know Khun Vichai".

United started poorly and deservedly trailed through Callum Wilson's early goal before Anthony Martial equalised before the break.

Goals from Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane appeared to put Tottenham in an unassailable position at Wolverhampton.
