Leicester City owner's family lay wreaths after deadly helicopter crash

It was hard; I kept thinking about him. I spent four-and-a-half years there and I have many special memories with him. That's why I put my hands in the air for him. My objective when I arrived at Leicester was to secure Premier League safety, then we all know what happened. He had a very big heart.

The EFL said: "The thoughts and prayers of the EFL and its member clubs are with the family and friends of those who have lost loved ones, Leicester City Football Club, its supporters and the wider Leicester community".

Asked when he chose to play the match on Monday evening, Mahrez replied: 'I always wanted to play. He was passionate about football.

Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, added: "Riyad was part of Leicester for many, many years".

It was far from a vintage performance from the champions but they could have scored further goals, with Raheem Sterling, David Silva and Sergio Aguero all missing chances.

"Harry Kane went through one on one with the goalkeeper and with a bit more luck there we could score and the game changes".

The NFL markings on the pitch, left over from the weekend, didn't help, a reminder of the fact that this game should have been played not here but at the new White Hart Lane. There was perhaps also a timorousness about playing City, who twice outplayed Spurs last season, winning 4-1 and 3-1.

Manchester City overcame Tottenham and a hard Wembley pitch, to claim a 1-0 win in Monday night's Premier League clash. "Harry Kane, [Moussa] Dembele, Eric Dier, [Toby] Alderweireld, [Davinson] Sanchez...it's incredible physicality, and this pitch was so complicated, we missed some goals and we let them run, they are so fast so good". It was the kind of cheap goal you can not concede in this type of game.

"A lot", Guardiola responded when asked how anxious he was as the game went on.
