Puel Praises Leicester Players After 'Perfect Day' Win Over Everton

Everton's banter season continues but was Jonjoe Kenny's mistake an own goal or not?

Leicester City manager, Claude Puel says he was impressed with his players after they eased past Everton in a Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

However the goal was credited to the Leicester forward who looked nearly apologetic as he celebrated only his second Premier goal in 51 appearances.

The former Southampton manager returns to the touchlines of a Premier League game for the first time in four months - where his side are set to host Everton - after being sacked by the Saints, but the 56-year-old insists his focus now lies exclusively with Leicester and not clubs of the past.

A roller coaster few years for the midlands club have seen them win the Championship title, stave off relegation against the odds and become Premier League champions, bringing Champions League football to the King Power Stadium.

Puel did so before kick-off in an odd interview with four of Sky Sports' punditry team on the substitutes bench where Thierry Henry was on hand to translate whenever his compatriot found difficulty expressing his feelings in English. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there. "For whatever reason, in the first half it didn't work, so you have got to be reactive and show the players that you are on the front foot as well".




"It was a little more hard in the second half because Everton is a good team", Puel said.

Vardy revealed that Puel "didn't want to change too much" for his first game in charge, and added: "He's just put a few tactical tweaks in there and it's paid off for us today". Gray got on the ball and split them open.

"We hit them on the counter for the first goal".

"But the lads have dug in and the main thing is we've come in with the three points".
