Leicester City

Puel eager for repeat display

24th December 2018, 13:00 by Tom Hill

Leicester coach Claude Puel has urged his team to deliver the goods once again when they take on Manchester City on Boxing Day.

The Foxes shocked the Premier League on Saturday after their surprise win at Chelsea.

Leicester ended a three-match losing run when they travelled to Stamford Bridge and left with all three points thanks to Jamie Vardy's smart finish.

Puel's side will now host City just a week after losing to them in the EFL Cup but Puel is hoping they can repeat their performance from the win over Chelsea.

He told reporters: "Our last game against City was encouraging, about our mentality, about our play and possibility.

"We lost on the lottery of penalties, we didn’t manage very well this exercise, I know. On the pitch it was interesting. We will see our game. If we have the ability to repeat three days after a tough game against also a good team.

"It will be another fantastic challenge and we need to create another upset."
