Claude Puel: My playing style is not boring

"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".

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. "For whatever reason, in the first half it didn't work, so you have got to be reactive and show the players that you are on the front foot as well".

Everton have made their worst defensive start to a Premier League season for 23 years after sinking to yet another defeat on Sunday.

The Foxes striker has now scored the first top-flight goal under the last three Foxes managers - Claudio Ranieri, Craig Shakespeare and Claude Puel.

Goals from Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray inside the first half hour at King Power Stadium put paid to Everton's hopes of avoiding a seventh consecutive game without a win in all competitions, but Unsworth was pleased with the improvement he saw in the second half. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

He played more than 50% of the Bills defensive snaps for the first time all season in Buffalo's last game against Tampa Bay. The two-time Pro Bowler will likely move into the starting lineup ahead of nose tackle Abry Jones (6-foot-4, 318).

"It was a little more hard in the second half because Everton is a very good team and they tried to come back into the game".

"I've had to wait a long time for my opportunities".

Puel did so before kick-off in an odd interview with four of Sky Sports' punditry team on the substitutes bench where Thierry Henry was on hand to translate whenever his compatriot found difficulty expressing his feelings in English.

"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. Their lead was doubled 11 minutes later when Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny sliced Demarai Gray's left wing cross into his own net.
