Leicester City owner's family lay wreaths after deadly helicopter crash

"It is very sad".

Riyad Mahrez celebrates after scoring the only goal for Manchester City against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Monday night.

This was a far more prosaic performance, but it must have been just as encouraging for Guardiola, given the way City subdued a Tottenham side who had lost only two of their previous 21 league games at Wembley.

Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez dedicated his Wembley victor against Tottenham to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after the "heartbreaking" death of the Leicester owner.

David Silva and Mahrez both could have put the game beyond Tottenham but the hosts, who were on a four-match winning run in the league and could have gone above City into second with a victory, always posed a threat.

"To be honest it's been very, very hard for me", he said after the match. "That is why when I scored I put my hands in the sky for him because he did a lot for me and Leicester and it is hard to speak about because it is very sad". He did a lot for me and Leicester and it is hard to speak about.

'He was passionate about football.

Pep Guardiola admitted he had concerns about starting with Mahrez when the winger decided that he wanted to play. It was a big loss for all of the families in Leicester and Riyad was part of that for many, many years. But even with that I think we still had a lot to improve if we want to be a contender. "Sometimes playing games helps". "We have a lot of things to improve", he said.

"It was a very competitive game, we conceded so early, you can not concede so early in these type of games, but we are so proud".

City seemed less troubled by the surface and they scythed through the Tottenham defence with a flowing move that ended with Hugo Lloris pushing Mahrez's drive onto a post.

Ground staff were also unable to fully wash out the National Football League markings completely from the pitch in the 24 hours leading up to the City game, due to three weeks' worth of National Football League paint soaking into the grass, and aggressively washing it out having the capacity to damage the surface even further. "I am disappointed because of the result but the performance was good".
