A picture of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, late chairman of Leicester City Football Club is placed next to his urn at Wat Thepsirin in Bangkok, Thailand, November 3, 2018.

Before the game, Leicester players wore white t-shirts bearing the image of Srivaddhanaprabha and the words "The Boss" on the front of them.

Leicester - who lost Harry Maguire to injury after 27 minutes - nearly fell behind on the half-hour mark when Victor Camarasa's 25-yard free-kick cannoned back off Kasper Schmeichel's crossbar.

Leicester City players will fly to the country to pay their respects to the man widely credited with helping the club win the Premier League in 2015/16.

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.

He said: 'That was a tough game, not just on the pitch, but mentally.

Gray's booking under disciplinary protocol provoked a fierce debate on social media, with many fans believing Probert should have ignored the letter of the law and not brandished a yellow card given the highly-charged circumstances.

"That took a lot, so proud of how everyone played today, how professional everyone was. I'm proud to have been part of his family".
