Goals in each half from the visitors secured all three points as Joao Mario and Mark Noble found the net and Leicester City remain in ninth place in the Premier League table as the pressure ramps up on manager Claude Puel.
Having been given a vote of confidence by Leicester’s owners on Friday, extending the winless run on home soil to six matches won’t have gone unnoticed, nor will the overall performance which leaves us with only two wins in our last 12 games.
Those expressing their displeasure at the Frenchman are unlikely to cut him any slack even though he was without nine senior players for the game as they will point to prior performances and the fact we have failed to score in three successive games for the first time since February 2017.
With Arsenal up next, things are unlikely to get any easier for the Foxes.
Sack him. Embarrassing effort today

Never heard an overwhelming majority of fans calling for Pearson-Ranieri-Shakespeare to be sacked. Puel has got to go

his frustration? Get him to start paying to watch us lose every week then he’ll know what real frustration is.
