Leicester City ponders Wes Morgan's fitness for Atletico clash

Leicester City fared far better than most were anticipating on Wednesday evening in their 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter finals.

Koke had already hit the visitors' post in the first half when the referee judged Marc Albrighton's foul on Antoine Griezmann had been inside the penalty area. "We're aware of what we need to do in the second leg".

"You are talking about a Champions League quarter-final".

Leicester then survived a scare when Huth was beaten by Fernando Torres but the former Liverpool striker slipped as he shot and the ball bounced out for a throw in.

"I think it is a disappointing moment, a key moment".

The FC Lausanne-Sport left-back told Completesportsnigeria.com: "Atletico Madrid have the lead from last night going into the second leg but from the way Leicester have performed in the Champions League this season, you can not really bet that they will lose in England".

"We could have seen it out if we'd stayed in the lead a bit longer, but they asked a lot of questions of us with their aerial threat".

"I've not spoken with him recently but when he was given the job I called him and said: "Welcome to the madhouse". But honestly, it is touch and go and we'll have to look at team shape over the next few days", Shakespeare said.

Griezmann, who finished third in the Ballon d'Or voting previous year, has carried Atletico at times this season and it was his break that set up the penalty that he then converted past Kasper Schmeichel.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone recognised the difficulties of playing at the King Power and said he expects a raucous atmosphere in Leicester. "It was a definite foul but it was outside the box".

Palace go into the game on the back of Monday's stunning 3-0 defeat of Arsenal, a win that extended their recent run to five victories in six games and moved them six points clear of the relegation zone.

"If ever you need some advice with the experience he's got, he definitely would be one of the people I'd turn to".

It could have been worse for Leicester. "But we know we still have a challenge ahead against a very good team. We know it is a going to be a very hard return match, but we have very good record at the King Power".

THE first thing Sam Allardyce did when Craig Shakespeare took charge at Leicester was call him and say: "Welcome to the madhouse".
