Leicester City boss Puel blames loss on one thing

England-Leicester city under fire manager Claude Puel has blamed his side’s 2-1 loss to Southampton’s defensive block despite the Saints being reduced to 10 men and wants his side to learn how to play against such sides.
“I think we wanted to give the right response after our game against Newport,” Puel told LCFC TV.
“I think we started with good moves and after we conceded the first goal from a counter attack and gave some easy balls for the opponent to make counter attacks and put us under pressure.
“Of course, it is a shame to concede the second before half-time because with 11 men against 10 men we can come back into the game easier. We scored our goal at a good time.
“We tried to score another goal and come from behind, we made a lot of crosses and shots, but it is always difficult to play against a deep block. There was a lot of shots and saves from their goalkeeper but without enough movement in the box.
“We need to work at this play because we play a lot against a deep block and it is important to find more solutions. It’s a shame, a big disappointment.
“We continue to learn and now it is important to be strong and find the right response and reaction in the next game.”
