Venue: King Power Stadium
Kick off: 4PM
Leicester are set for an emotional homecoming when they face Burnley this afternoon in their first match at the King Power Stadium since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Srivaddhanaprabha was killed along with four others in a helicopter crash on October 27 and Leicester players travelled to Thailand to attend his funeral after their win over Cardiff last weekend.
There will be tributes ahead of the game and Leicester players’ shirts will be embroidered with Srivaddhanaprabha’s name for the first half of the match against Burnley.
Manager Claude Puel said his side found “the right balance between emotion and concentration” in the win over Cardiff, and hopes they can do the same this weekend.
“I think it’s the most important thing to manage this emotion of the events at our next game and to have the possibility and to give then a good response and to honour our chairman. We need to find this balance.
“We cannot make a lot of training sessions but I said it was a good energy. This journey was good for us. All this togetherness, we showed our positive attitude.
“It is not easy to prepare for this game. The emotion, no consistency in training sessions. But we will compensate with our spirit and attitude and the support from the fans, of course.”
Burnley manager Sean Dyche and his coaching staff attended Leicester’s game against West Ham but left before the helicopter crash occurred.
Dyche said: “All we’ve done is made the players aware we’ll do everything we can to play our part if needed with the respect that’s deserved.”
Burnley have lost their last three matches in a row, conceding 13 goals.
Leicester possible XI: Schmeichel, Ricardo, Pereira, Evans, Morgan, Chilwell, Ndidi, Mendy, Albrighton, Maddison, Gray, Vardy.
Burnley possible XI: Hart, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Defour, Lennon, Vokes, Wood.
