New Leicester boss Puel 'impressed' with players after Everton victory

The Frenchman, who was dismissed by Southampton in June after just one season in charge despite finishing eighth in the Premier League, said it was a "great privilege" to become the new Leicester manager.

"I was impressed with my players".

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. "It was a very good first half and there were good combinations between the players for the first goal". Leicester shocked the football world two seasons ago by seeing off the Premier League powerhouses to secure the title, with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez stealing the headlines.

The Algeria worldwide submitted a transfer request in the summer and was linked with Arsenal and Barcelona, but ended up staying and has scored two goals in his last three matches. I'm sure that he will continue and develop at Leicester.

Second half they put pressure on but we saw it out. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

He warned that "we can produce uranium enrichment at 20 percent within four days, but we do not want the JCPOA to collapse". According to Salehi, Amano will discuss serious issues with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani during his scheduled meeting.

It was a good question but, unfortunately, Puel had absolutely no idea what was said due to Carragher's strong Liverpool accent.

Turns out not too much.

The change resulted in Everton ending the match with 16 attempts on goal, but they were unable to convert any of them and slumped to their third defeat of the week.

The England Under-21 global produced a sparkling run and pass for Riyad Mahrez to set up Jamie Vardy for the opener and was credited with the second goal after defender John-Joe Kenny deflected the ball past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
