Leicester City players attend funeral of late owner in Thailand

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

Demarai Gray produced a sharp finish to score the victor midway through the second half, a goal that sparked wild celebrations in front of the 3,000 traveling fans.

The 22-year-old netted the first goal and then removed his jersey to reveal the message 'For Khun Vichai.' Subsequently, he was shown Yellow card by the referee Lee Probert.

Schmeichel confirmed he had witnessed the horrifying moment when the helicopter transporting Vichai fell to the ground shortly after taking off. Eyewitness reports suggested he sprinted out of the stadium in an attempt to assist and he said the experience is one that will never leave him.

Club captain Wes Morgan, striker Jamie Vardy, and manager Claude Puel were also pictured as part of the Leicester delegation, dressed in black suits, white shirts and black ties, for the week-long funeral of their former owner.

He said: "I am glad we got three points for him. The way everyone at the club handles themselves is a testament to the family Vichai built", Schmeichel said.

"I can't imagine what his family are going through".

Schmeichel said he was "shaking" in the warm-up at Cardiff and he was clearly emotional as the Leicester playing squad and staff stood around the centre circle before kick-off to observe a minute's silence. "We wanted to be together about this", he added.

Arsenal vs Liverpool, Premier League
However, former Liverpool FC star Murphy believes Lovren is a more than worthy third-choice centre-half in the Liverpool FC team. But, they have never been leading at halftime, suggesting that the bulk of their scoring has been happening in the second half.

Over the coming days Thailand's business and political elites are expected to visit the temple to pay their respects, while monks will chant Buddhist verses over the duty-free mogul's body.

Players will be attending services on Sunday and Monday after beating Cardiff 1-0 in the first game since his death. "We will be ready but I hope we can find a good balance between conviction and emotion in this game because if we remain just on the emotion it will be hard".

On any other weekend, the showdown between revitalised Arsenal and title-chasing Liverpool would have hogged the spotlight which instead shone on Leicester.

James Milner thumped Jurgen Klopp's side into the lead midway through the second period when he fired Bernd Leno's punch from Mane's cross into the back of the net. It was a good balance between emotion and concentration, which is hard. Just before his investment, the team was in the third tier of the UK's national game.

The first half ended without a goal, despite chances for both sides - with Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk hitting the woodwork for the Reds and Sadio Mane having an effort ruled out for offside.

"The second half was much better".

The top two teams of Groups A and B advance to the semi-finals of the biennial regional championship.
