สโบเบ็ต Claude Puel will not be satisfied with Leicester City’s new style of play until it consistently produces results.
While City have retained their trademark counter-attacking prowess, Puel has incorporated an emphasis on keeping possession and playing the ball on the ground.
It has had a notable effect on performances. City have averaged 48 per cent possession and 74 per cent pass completion under the Frenchman, an increase of four per cent in both regards compared with last season.
In fact, City’s 62 per cent possession at Newcastle earlier in December was the most they’d had in a game since returning to the Premier League in 2014.
However, Puel believes these stylistic differences are irrelevant if they are accompanied by negative results, such as Boxing Day’s 2-1 defeat to Watford .
“When we won four games (against Tottenham, Burnley, Newcastle and Southampton), it was a very good period, with quality,” said Puel.
“Always, we’ve played good games. Just against Crystal Palace, there was not enough concentration or quality on the pitch. สโบเบ็ต
“We try to play on the floor. Against Watford, it was difficult because it was a physical and powerful opponent. We need to have more control in our games and we need to improve because it’s important to have good results at the same time.
“To continue this hard work on the pitch and to have good results for the confidence to improve, this is the most important thing.
“It’s a long process. I have a good feeling with the players. I enjoy their football. But sometimes, like against Watford, they are unlucky and I am disappointed.”
The loss at Vicarage Road was City’s second game of four in 10 days as the festive period pushes the squad to the limit, both physically and mentally.
Puel suggested this may have affected City’s lack of concentration at set-pieces and in the period just before half-time, when former loanee Molla Wague scored Watford’s equaliser.
“It was a tough game because it’s the Christmas period, it’s just after Manchester United and before Liverpool,” said Puel. “I found my players with a positive attitude because it was difficult to give a good response (after United).
“There were duels everywhere on the pitch, aggressiveness in the second balls. Our response was good. But for me, it’s a story about set-pieces, which is a pity because we deserved a draw.
“Perhaps we have to correct (the lack of concentration before half-time). It’s not the first goal we’ve conceded just before half-time. We need more concentration and to put more aggressiveness on the pitch.” สโบเบ็ต
