In true ex-player fashion, the Frenchman opted for a muted celebration in respect of his former side.

Antonio Conté’s side looked headed for an easy victory when, just after the hour-mark, Thibaut Courtois felled Jamie Vardy in the box, leaving the Leicester striker to convert the resulting spot-kick.
