LEICESTER, England (AP) — Leicester came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 in Premier League on Saturday as the club marked the one-year anniversary of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s death.
Youri Tielemans scored the winner in the 74th minute to complete the comeback, after Jamie Vardy had canceled out an opening goal for the visitors by former Leicester player Chris Wood.
The win lifts Leicester into the top four, continuing its surge under manager Brendan Rodgers.
Tielemans’ shot thumped off the crossbar and into the net to release the tension at the King Power Stadium, which used the game to honor Vichai, the Thai billionaire who died in a helicopter crash just outside the venue on Oct. 27 last year. Four others were also killed.
Around 5,000 supporters took part in a walk through the city to the stadium before the match, while a minute’s silence was held before kick off.
