"I love the way they play football and even happier that one of our boys, Wilfred Ndidi, is doing well for them".

"We know it is bound to be a very hard return match, but we have a very good record at King Power Stadium", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said.

Former Super Eagles defender Taye Taiwo has heaped praises on Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for his emergence as an important player for club and country, reports.

"I wished him all the very best on jumping into the madhouse and said 'good luck coping with it, "' said Allardyce, 62, whose England assistant Sammy Lee followed him to Palace.

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed that Wes Morgan is back in training but remains "50-50" for next week's Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid. They achieved the great escape in the first season and then after that won the Premier that's why the game's mad, isn't it?

The referee pointed to the penalty spot but television replays showed that the foul took place at least a foot outside the penalty area although the momentum caused Griezmann to fall in the box. "Our fans enjoy these Champions League nights, but of course we need to create more chances and we have to make sure that we attack probably a bit more than we did tonight". There are only a few weeks left, it's seven finals and I consider this as one. Leicester has a ideal home record in its debut campaign in the Champions League, with four victories and only one goal conceded.

Carl shared footage from the game from behind the Atletico goal.

Albrighton admitted a 1-0 defeat in Madrid was an acceptable result, but lamented the lack of an away goal and accepted that Leicester will have to be much more aggressive going forward in the second leg to turn the tie around. "We want to win every game we play, we knew it was going to be hard".

Simeone is set to be without injured duo Gabi and Kevin Gameiro, while Koke misses the match through suspension.

"It's still open but we have the 1-0 advantage", Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak said.

"He was a player I had a lot of time for".
