Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people died when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium shortly after the draw with West Ham on Saturday October 27. The 31-year-old had received counselling during the week and was in tears during the pre-match minute's silence, but responded with a performance full of guts and resilience. "It felt like a cup final".

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

"I was just really glad to have won, because for someone to have an impact on so many lives is quite unique".

"I think either Chelsea and Liverpool (are contenders), they are very strong, Arsenal as well. It is an emotional day and an emotional time but there was no question I was going to play".

Goalkeeper Schmeichel witnessed the tragic accident and has spoken out about the memory which he feels will not leave him.
