Watch highlights of Leicester 0-0 Burnley

Leicester and Burnley played out a goalless draw in the first home game since Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death on a difficult and emotional day at The King Power.

Thousands of Leicester City fans marched pre-match on Saturday to honour former owner Srivaddhanaprabha and four others, who were killed when their helicopter crashed following Leicester’s previous home match against West Ham.

A two-minute silence was held among other tributes before kick-off where Vichai’s son Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha laid a wreath in front of a full house at the King Power, who held commemorative scarves with the words “Forever In Our Hearts.”

On the pitch, Leicester created ample opportunities in the first half as Jamie Vardy had an effort cleared off the line and Rachid Ghezzal hit the crossbar. However, they ran out of steam on an emotionally sapping week for all concerned with the club.
