Leicester City are playing to honour the memory of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, says boss Claude Puel

Leicester City travel to Cardiff City in the first game since the tragic helicopter accident that killed owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others last weekend.

The Foxes, who drew 1-1 with West Ham prior to the tragedy, postponed their midweek League Cup tie with Southampton but will be looking for a first win since late September in the Welsh capital in honour of their late Thai owner.

Cardiff were well beaten by Liverpool last weekend after their win over Fulham the week previous, but they will be looking to get points on the board with fixtures against Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City all out of the way.

Player to watch

Ben Chilwell: The left-back continues to churn out performance after performance and he was once again the bright spark against West Ham. The Foxes struggled to get on the front foot for large parts of the game but the England international always seemed the most likely outlet for Leicester to get them going forward. He will be looking to cause more problems to a shaky Cardiff defence at the weekend.

Jose Mourinho claims his touchline swearing was not offensive after being cleared of an FA charge for using foul or abusive language.

After coming from behind to beat Newcastle 3-2 late last month, amid a backdrop of uncertainty about his position, tensions boiled over at full-time as the 55-year-old made his way towards the tunnel.

Footage showed the Manchester United manager making comments in Portuguese, at one point looking into a camera, as he headed down the touchline, leading to an FA charge for using abusive, insulting or improper language.

United vigorously contested it and an Independent Regulatory Commission decided against sanctioning him after a hearing on Wednesday.

It is understood that move surprised the FA's disciplinary department and could yet be appealed against, but Mourinho is happy with the initial outcome.

Bournemouth will be over the moon to see that Romelu Lukaku is not even in the squad for today's clash. In six league and cup starts against them, the Belgian has scored eight goals, including a four goals for Everton in a 6-3 win in February 2017.
