Claude Puel has praised his plucky side after a 1-0 win with Jaime Vardy second-half goal proving the difference in the premier league match.
“We played this game with confidence and the right mentality away at Chelsea, a good team with great players,” the Frenchman said at full-time. He told the club website
“In this game, we played with a fantastic togetherness. Perhaps in the first half, we were disappointed because we could have used the ball with more quality.
“We wasted some good opportunities in the first half but our togetherness and our defensive aspect was fantastic. We scored a goal with a fantastic move and I was happy for Jamie.
“It was a clinical goal and fantastic service from Maddy [James Maddison] also. We continued to defend like a team with 11 players with the mentality to keep this result.”
“It’s a fantastic reward for the team because we managed this game very well,” Puel added. “We were a little lucky in the end when they hit the post, but I am happy for the players.
