Leicester players to attend Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral in Thailand

A vehicle carrying the body of Leicester City owner Thai businessman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha arrives at Wat Thep Sirin Temple ahead of his funeral in Bangkok November 2, 2018.

The helicopter crashed after taking off from the club's stadium on 27 October, killing Mr Vichai and four others.

Leicester City are looking into ways for players and staff can fly to Thailand for part of the funeral.

Schmeichel said he was "shaking" in the warm-up at Cardiff and he was clearly emotional as the Leicester playing squad and staff stood on the centre circle before kick-off to observe a minute's silence.

They travelled to Thailand 6,000 miles in 15 hours on Saturday after winning an English Premier League match against Cardiff City, where tributes were brought onto the pitch before the game in memory of Vichai.

Claude Puel insisted referee Lee Probert was correct to book Demarai Gray for his shirt-off goal celebration in tribute to the late Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Leicester fans sang Vichai's name for the rest of a highly charged afternoon and, at the final whistle, the visiting players came together to embrace. We all spoke about wanting to play.

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.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp added: "They had a few chances for sure". "They are growing as people and it's a good thing", he said.

The Hammers' deserved win was their first in the league since late September and owed much to two goals from Felipe Anderson. "We had clear chances".

Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage-time victor as Manchester United came from behind to win 2-1 at Bournemouth.

Callum Wilson's 11th-minute opener for Bournemouth was cancelled out by Anthony Martial's 35th-minute effort as United survived a series of missed chances from the hosts.

Jose Mourinho's team once again needed to dig deep after falling behind on Saturday - the third time in four Premier League matches they have shown their curious Jekyll and Hyde character.

"We were defensively bad".

Richarlison's brace inspired Everton's 3-1 win over Brighton at Goodison Park.
