18 December 2018 12:02 GMT
Leicester City boss Claude Puel was not optimistic about how his side will be able to get a win over Manchester City in the Carabao cup today.
“We know this team and we know these players, I think it’s a team [that has] the ability to improve their play against any opponent,” the Leicester boss told the media on Monday afternoon.
“All the team, all the opponents need to adapt their play against them. It’s strange, with Barcelona, they’re the only team with the ability to improve their game in all circumstances.”
He continued: “Where is the solution? All the opponents try different things to play down, to play with a strong block, to try strong pressing against them.
“They have all of the solutions. We have to have a good performance and to play a full game against them. It’s a cup game and it’s always difficult.
“It’s a different game than the Premier League games. I think we will have opportunities tomorrow if we play with our intensity, our fighting spirit and togetherness.”
