The Premier League family was rocked late Saturday, when a helicopter crashed just outside the King Power Stadium following Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United.
There has yet to be confirmation, but reports Sunday have stated that owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was on board with possibly four other people when the helicopter had a mechanical problem just after liftoff.
Srivaddhanaprabha was beloved by fans, staff, and players alike for bringing the Premier League title to Leicester in the 2015-16 season, a feat many say is the greatest sporting achievement of all time. It gave hope to all underdogs around the globe, and also saw the Foxes make a run all the way to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals in the 2016-17 campaign.
Tributes have poured in from around the world, including Thailand, the home county of Srivaddhanaprabha.
On the pitches, Arsenal’s winning streak was snapped, Barcelona embarrassed Real Madrid, and Manchester United finally got a victory.
Crystal 2-2 Palace Arsenal
Burnley 0-4 Chelsea
Manchester United 2-1 Everton
Barcelona 5-1 Real Madrid

Luis Suarez, Barcelona

PALACE STOPS ARSENAL’S WINNING STREAK AT 11
Granit Xhaka gave, and he took away, Sunday for the Gunners.
The Arsenal midfielder smashed a free kick in off the bar from just outside the top corner of the 18, then gave away a late penalty, which Luka Milivojevic converted to earn Crystal Palace a 2-2 draw.
Milivojevic converted twice from the spot, the first two goals of the season for the Eagles at home in the league.
MESSI-LESS BARCELONA ROUTS REAL MADRID, TO SEAL LOPETEGUI’S FATE
There were reports Julien Lopetegui was going to be relieved of his head coaching duties last weekend, but Florentino Perez held off making the change.
There is little doubt that he will be gone very shortly, after Barcelona destroyed the three-time defending UEFA Champions League winners 5-1 Sunday. Lionel Messi has been out of the team with an arm injury, but Suarez made sure that the Blaugrana moved back to the top of the La Liga table, while leaving Real Madrid in shambles.
