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

Leicester City appoint ex Southampton boss Claude Puel as new manager

Leicester manager Claude Puel savoured a winning start to his tenure after the Foxes produced flashes of their Premier League title-winning best to heap more misery on struggling Everton.

Unsworth took over from the sacked Ronald Koeman last Monday and has lost his first two games in charge, 2-1 away to Chelsea in the League Cup on Wednesday and 2-0 away to Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

He added: "It is important now to have a good focus about Leicester".

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.

Leicester manager Claude Puel has said he hopes to "seduce" playmaker Riyad Mahrez into staying at the King Power Stadium.

Spain Outscore Mali, Set Up England Final
Spain and Mali will clash in the semi-finals of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup at the D.Y. N'Diaye and Ruiz are now the joint second highest scorers in the tournament with six goals from six matches each.

"It is important to have a trainer who can help me have a relationship with the players", said Puel of Appleton, in his first Leicester press conference at the King Power Stadium on Friday. Today the first half wasn't acceptable, but we reacted and didn't get a goal that maybe our possession would suggest. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

Gray was handed a start by Puel at the expense of Shinji Okazaki, and the 21-year old repaid the Frenchman's faith by running the length of the pitch for Jamie Vardy's opener and scoring the second himself.

"Leicester is still a young club that is evolving, it's not long since they were promoted from the Championship", said the former Southampton boss as he addressed the media for the first time on Friday. We showed we are capable of defending a lead.

"I think the team need confidence and a little more consistency".
