The Foxes are playing Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at home in the Premier League in a game that will see Brendan Rodgers side leap-frog Manchester United into top spot should they win.

Schemeichel may be wanting to mark the occasion with a special memory after he was presented with a special award to mark his 400th appearance for the club.

It seemed that the Danish goalkeeper got a bit bored in the 30th minute and decided to spice things up by running a good 30-40 yards off his line to make an acrobatic clearance with his head.

The 34-year-old showed fierce shades of his old man, Peter Schmeichel, who was famous for his unusual goalkeeper technique which included moves you’d only normally see in handball.
