With Leicester City looking to bounce back from defeat to Everton in the weekend’s clash against Swansea City, manager Claude Puel again spoke of his frustration at the full time whistle.

Looking to avenge a two one defeat at Goodison Park as we welcomed Swansea to the King Power Stadium this weekend, having taken the lead through Jamie Vardy in the 17th minute and had good chances to increase our advantage, Puel felt that their leveller was undeserved in the greater scheme of things.

But equally he knew if you waste your chances at this level sides will make you pay.

Speaking to as he met with the media post game, Puel knew we should’ve made far better use of the good chances we created across the 90 minutes.

He did however also acknowledge that with five changes made and a far better performance, there were positives he could take from the game.

‘It is a big frustration. I think first well done to Swansea because they defended very well. They had just one chance in the game and I think we played very well in the first half. We created a lot of chances. We created of chances with quality and good combinations, a good understanding. It was amazing but without the final the clinical edge. We had to score another goal in the first half because it was a good period with quality. We put them under pressure with all these chances.’

He went on to say.

‘It was a bit more difficult in the second half and perhaps there was some tiredness. We finished the game stronger and it is a big frustration because we conceded one chance in the entire game and we conceded a set piece goal. It is harsh for the team but we have to correct this situation because we conceded a lot of goals from set pieces since the beginning of the season. We could have had a good reward after this game because of a lack of focus and concentration from a set piece. It is harsh.’

Puel was also asked about the ongoing missing nature of Riyad Mahrez and he explained that he simply ‘didn’t want to’ speak about that at that moment of time as he wanted to focus on the game.
