Puel without influential man vs City; attacker returns to training

Puel without influential man vs City; attacker returns to training

Riyad Mahrez believes that Leicester City broke a promise over his failed transfer to Manchester City, a report claims.

"If you're the academy or reserve team manager at Manchester City you must think "I'm wasting my time".

The tempo of the game was frantic from the very beginning, but City managed to control the possession well with their slick passing moves and intelligent off the ball running.

The Foxes blocked what would have been a dream move to the Premier League leaders for Mahrez, and he has subsequently missed the games against Everton and Swansea.

Leicester, who shocked everyone two seasons ago by winning the top-flight, have had a more hard campaign so far, however, the arrival of the French boss earlier in the year has seen them rise steadily up the table.

He has also now committed himself to finishing the season strong with Leicester City.

Leicester boss Claude Puel was in philosophical mood after watching his side crash to a heavy 5-1 defeat at Manchester City in Saturday's late kick off.

Puel said: "The most important thing is that Riyad came back to the training session, to the game".

Mahrez's global coach Rabah Madjer said the player "deserves better than Leicester", but former England striker Chris Sutton was critical of the player's reaction to his move collapsing.

On Mahrez, Guardiola added: "Hopefully he will come back soon to play football".

"In the second half, he scored four goals".

Leicester, playing with five at the back and using Jamie Vardy's pace on the break, did not roll over and levelled when Nicolas Otamendi's mistake let the England striker in to score. "We have had three massive games against [Manchester] United, Liverpool and Arsenal and seven points is good". However, many are now looking at Riyad Mahrez as mistreating the club who gave him a chance, whilst others look at the situation as being a case of vice versa. Poor form from our closest competitors has left us still just one point from 7th, and four points clear of 9th, but the Foxes need to turn this around. But every great team has a flaw and for this City side, directness and a pacy forward line do the trick to ring alarm bells around their backline.
