An emotional minute's silence at Leicester City match against Cardiff

Sunday, 04 Nov, 2018

On a day fraught with emotion, Leicester City beat Cardiff City 1-0 in Leicester's first Premier League game since the death of club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others in a helicopter crash last weekend.

Long after the final whistle, as the rest of the Cardiff City Stadium stood empty and still, a vibrant, defiant, boisterous chant rang out from the still packed visitors' section. City plays on Sunday against Southampton at home.

At the Emirates, a superb late strike from Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal a point after James Milner, who later broke his nose in a freak clash with teammate Joe Gomez, had given Liverpool a second-half lead.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho called himself "the luckiest manager in the Premier League" after his seventh-place side came from behind to win at Bournemouth 2-1.

Puel's team, now 12th in the Premier League, are without a victory in their last three games.

Leicester then gathered in a huddle for Schmeichel's team talk and, whatever emotive words he used, they seemed to work as Demarai Gray scored the only goal with a low finish in the 55th minute.

Where many suspect the referee Lee Probert may have demonstrated some leniency given the impetus behind Gray's decision, viewers were amazed that no exception was made.

Once inside the ground, most Leicester fans wore white T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan "The Boss" and a picture of Vichai on the front, and on the back "Khun Vichai You Will Be Forever In Our Hearts".

"You can see by our reaction at the end of the game, how much we wanted to get the win and do it for the chairman", he said. "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. "He's a man we were immensely proud to have known".

Unai Emery's side fell behind to James Milner's clinical finish after Bernd Leno pushed out Sadio Mane's cross in the 61st minute.

Their manager Claude Puel had said during the week that the result in Cardiff would not be important.

Substitute Marcus Rashford scored the victor two minutes into stoppage time at the end of the match after a surging run down the left and a pinpoint centre from Paul Pogba.

Tottenham returned to winning ways at Wolves, but were given a scare late on at Molineux in a 3-2 victory.
