Taye Taiwo Praises Ndidi, Tips Leicester To Shock Atletico

"Our attacking players are enjoying themselves more than they ever have this season and are flourishing in possession and scoring goals, so we have everything right at the moment and we just have to keep it up for a little bit longer".

But, with relegation all but staved off following Craig Shakespeare's appointment as manager until the end of the season, overcoming a 1-0 deficit to Diego Simeone's Atletico in their last-eight tie is now the priority. The crowd have really responded to them and have been fantastic.

"It's incredible to play in them and we're really looking forward to it".

It was a bitter defeat for the English champions as the spot-kick was awarded for a Marc Albrighton tackle on Griezmann that took place outside the penalty area. "I think he can be one of the best midfielders in his position".

"We're still in the tie and that was the aim".

"It has ruined our game plan", said the Dane. Suffice to say, though, a loss here will not result in Shakespeare befalling the same tragedy.

With Morgan's fellow central defender Robert Huth suspended for the Atletico clash, Shakespeare may take the chance to shake things up against Palace with Daniel Amartey under consideration for a defensive berth.

Wes Morgan has been ruled out of Leicester City's trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday and is rated at only 50/50 for their Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

The 53-year-old was appointed as a coach and spent 10 days in the Three Lions set up and was on the bench for September's 1-0 World Cup qualifier in Slovakia.

Spanish police confirmed on Wednesday (12 April) that eight Leicester fans were arrested for what they described as "causing a mess".

Albrighton also admitted he would welcome video replays in the Champions League to avoid mistakes after Eriksson's blunder.

"I think there is people deciding that and it could only be good for the game", he said. "It would be nice to see it get trialled and see how it works out. It is disappointing from my point of view and the lads' point of view but we have to move on".
