Shakespeare has ruled Morgan out of the Palace game and says he will not rush Morgan back to face Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday despite fellow defender Robert Huth being suspended.

"I think there are people deciding that and it could only be good for the game", Albrighton said of VAR.

"Maybe [it can provide motivation, but] we have a game at the weekend so we need to put it out of our minds as soon as possible and move on".

"When he got the job after Claudio Ranieri left I rang him and welcomed him to the mad house of management", said Allardyce.

Leicester City said that they are collaborating with Uefa and Spanish authorities to discover the "full facts" behind the incident.

He also dismissed suggestions they became distracted by the prospect of Tuesday's Champions League fixture against Atletico Madrid.

"We know it is still going to be a very hard return match".

Atletico opened the scoring in controversial fashion in the 28th minute - Leicester had enjoyed a good spell of possession, but were caught on the break by Antoine Griezmann, who ran nearly the length of the pitch before being brought down by Mark Albrighton.

The Foxes lost 1-0 thanks to a controversial Antoine Griezmann penalty, after referee Jonas Eriksson awarded a spot-kick despite Griezmann being fouled by Marc Albrighton outside the area. "It's a definite foul, but it's outside the box". "Maybe we needed to be a bit more aggressive to get a better result, but we have to understand that even after going down a goal our opponent stayed playing tightly on defense".

Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game during their English Premier League soccer match against Leicester City at Selhurst Park, London, Saturday, April 15, 2017.

Carl shared footage from the game from behind the Atletico goal. We want to win every game we play, we knew it was going to be hard.

Palace have won five of their last six matches to haul themselves six points clear of the relegation zone.

The visitors failed to register a shot on target over the 90 minutes and midfielder Andy King replaced forward Shinji Okazaki at the interval, with Wilfred Ndidi dropping into holding role to marshal the mercurial Griezmann. "We have a very good record at (home), the fans really enjoy these Champions League nights, although we know we'll have to create more chances than we did tonight".
