Leicester fans buoyant despite defeat to Atletico Madrid in Champions League

Shakespeare said: "If I think it's the right thing to do and benefits the team all players are adaptable".

'We will only put him in if ready, ' said Shakespeare.

Can Leicester reach the semi-finals of the Champions League?

But the collective state of mind for Leicester is far better than it was following the February 22 loss at Sevilla, and Shakespeare deserves much of the credit for that.

Leicester thought they had a tough night tonight, it will be a lot tougher next week.

And you would be foolish ever to write off Leicester after last season's title fairytale, even if overcoming Atletico would surely represent their biggest scalp to date.

Leicester have won all four of their Champions League home games this term, leading at the break in each of those victories and conceding just one goal across them.

While he hopes China will cooperate on North Korea, he said if Beijing is not willing to help resolve the problem, "we will". White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has noted several "big problems" between the United States and China.

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was equally adamant that the decision was the incorrect one.

Atletico also showed that they were willing to try their fortune from outside the penalty area with both their strikers Koke and Saul Niguez willing to try their luck with long rangers.

Leicester could be down to the bare bones for the second leg with Yohan Benalouane, who played in Madrid, and Marcin Wasilewski the only recognised central defenders available.

"We can take them back to ours and hopefully turn over the deficit, like the last tie", Leicester midfielder Andy King said. It remains unclear if captain Wes Morgan will recover in time from a back injury.

"It's a blow to lose Robert. We have a very good record at the King Power, our fans enjoy these Champions League nights". I was a coach under him, it came down to the fact that he lost his job, I knew that it might have a snowball effect for other members of staff and unfortunately I was one of them. But honestly, it is touch and go and we'll have to look at team shape over the next few days.

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