Schmeichel proud to be part of the Leicester 'family'

A Premier League referee has come under criticism for his decision to book Leicester City's Demari Gray for removing his jersey after scoring a goal for his side in today's clash against Cardiff City.

"Coming out for the warm-up was tough, the first 10 minutes I couldn't steady myself, I was shaking a little bit".

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel says the emotions following their 1-0 win in Cardiff City on Saturday were unlike anything he has experienced in his career. That was him from day one, when I first met him, he never changed one bit.

"It is a family and I think Vichai with his warmth, it is a mission to keep this way, and put in place a project that we must try to continue".

"It's one thing building a team and a club that can perform on the pitch, but we're more proud of the family that he's created and the feeling he's instilled in everybody being welcome".

Leicester City footballers have visited a Thai temple to pay their respects to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the club's late owner.

"We have all lost a family member".

An emotional minute's silence was held prior to Leicester's game with Cardiff, which Schmeichel admits was hard to get through.

The 22-year-old was booked after taking off his shirt in celebration, revealing the message "For Kun Vichai".

Fans wore identical t-shirts in the away end, and the entire Leicester playing squad and backroom staff lined up around the centre circle for a minute's silence before kick-off.

The Reds trail only Manchester City for the best defence in the league but Keown believes that the Liverpool duo can go on to form an all-time partnership should they both stay healthy.

Arsenal made it 14 straight unbeaten by drawing 1-1 with Liverpool off Alexandre Lacazette's 82nd-minute score.

"I am only 50 percent happy because we wanted to win". It was a good balance between emotion and concentration, which is hard.

Tottenham, in fourth position, moved within three points of Liverpool despite conceding two second-half penalties in a 3-2 win at Wolverhampton.

Manchester United fought back from one goal down to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium as second-half substitute Marcus Rashford scored the victor in injury time.

Puel's men are back in action next Saturday, with Leicester hosting Burnley in the Premier League. The first half was a disaster.

They looked comfortable leading 3-0 at Molineux after quickfire goals from Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura and then a second-half strike from Harry Kane.

There was a tense finish as Wolves' Ruben Neves scored a 68th minute penalty before team-mate Raul Jimenez netted with another spot-kick in the 79th minute.
