Maguire and Leicester players join Srivaddhanaprabha tribute march

Maguire and Leicester players join Srivaddhanaprabha tribute march

Harry Maguire, Andy King, James Maddison, Matty James and Hamza Choudhury were among the Leicester players who joined the fans as they marched from Jubilee Square, in the city centre, to the King Power Stadium, singing Vichai's name.

On Friday, Leicester announced plans to erect a statue of Vichai at the stadium and the club honoured the charismatic owner with a poignant tribute video and a two-minute silence prior to kick-off.

On the pitch, Rachid Ghezzal hit the bar and Matt Lowton cleared off the line from Jamie Vardy as the Foxes, who dominated for long spells and remain 10th, tried without success to find a victor.

The club staff had the huge task this week of moving the thousands of tributes and flowers which had been laid outside the stadium, putting them into the auto park to allow access.

The Foxes nearly opened the scoring after 15 minutes when Hart failed to grasp a cross and Vardy's drilled strike was cleared off the line by Lowton.

Leicester will wear shirts embroidered with their former owner's nameagainst Burnley.

Burnley came into the game in the second period but carried little attacking threat.

The White House Correspondents' Association and other journalism groups have backed him up, not to mention CNN . The White House claimed Acosta "placed his hand" on the female intern while she tried to get the microphone.

Burnley rarely threatened, but Wood should have done better when, unmarked, he guided a half-volley over from 12 yards with 18 minutes left. "That means letting the players know that the feeling of the day, predominantly, is going to be all about Leicester - and rightly so".

Away from home in the Premier League is hard.

Leicester mustered 22 shots in the game, the most they have attempted in a Premier League game without scoring since they returned to the top-flight in 2014/15.

"The Srivaddhanaprabha family and everyone at Leicester City Football Club have been deeply moved by the remarkable volume of generous and thoughtful tributes left at King Power Stadium", the club said in a statement.

Leicester failed to score in a Premier League game this season for the first time, with every side now failing to score in at least one top-flight game this season. He also managed to keep rampaging Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell very quiet. He said: "The respect shown was overwhelming". In just eight years, he had embedded himself into the city, where the millions he poured into the football club were matched by his philanthropic efforts, donating millions to various local charities, social development programs, and the local hospital to aid improvements to a city that he embraced. "The people of Leicester have been unbelievable".

Puel has admitted getting the players ready for the game against struggling Burnley had been tough.
