Leicester City boss Claude Puel wants to 'seduce' Riyad Mahrez to stay

Leicester City appoint ex Southampton manager Claude Puel

Claude Puel gets the win on his managerial debut for Leicester City as David Unsworth's Everton are left searching for answers.

Puel, 56, also a former manager of Monaco, Lyon and Nice in France, will take charge of his first game on Sunday when the Foxes host Everton at the King Power Stadium.

"Every manager has their ideas about how they want to play - I certainly do - and you need time on the training ground to implement those ideas".

Leicester won the title under Claudio Ranieri in 2015-16 but parted company with the Italian in February and despite a good recovery under Shakespeare at the end of last season, they are only a point above the relegation places this term.

As for Puel, his verdict was glowing after meeting his new backers at the King Power Stadium. Today the first half wasn't acceptable, but we reacted and didn't get a goal that maybe our possession would suggest.

Leicester stopped a run of back-to-back defeats against Everton in the Premier League. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

"I was impressed because they played very well first half with good combination, with good relationships between the players and it was a fantastic first goal, " he said.

Turns out not too much.

England striker Jamie Vardy finished a glorious sweeping move to open the scoring and recalled winger Demarai Gray's shot was helped in by Toffees defender Jonjoe Kenny for the second.

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

"Once we do go in front we know we are capable of defending a lead and we've shown that in the second half after they've made a tactical change themselves to put us under a bit of pressure".

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