Arsene Wenger praises Claude Puel's appointment at Leicester City

Claude Puel gets the win on his managerial debut for Leicester City as David Unsworth's Everton are left searching for answers.

Tom Davies of Everton and Demarai Gray of Leicester City battle for the ball during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Everton at The King Power Stadium on October 29, 2017 in Leicester, England. It is down to me to create that environment where these players want to thrive and stay and be happy and to enjoy themselves.

The Algerian delivered the ideal cutback into the path of Jamie Vardy who didn't break stride as he steered the ball beyond Jordan Pickford for his sixth Premier goal of the season.

However the goal was credited to the Leicester forward who looked nearly apologetic as he celebrated only his second Premier goal in 51 appearances.

Leicester stopped a run of back-to-back defeats against Everton in the Premier League.

The Frenchman, who was dismissed by Southampton in June after just one season in charge despite finishing eighth in the Premier League, said it was a "great privilege" to become the new Leicester manager. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

This season has been another struggle, with just two wins in their first nine fixtures, although they eased the pressure at the weekend with a 2-1 victory at Swansea City, which lifted them to 14th in the table.

It was a good question but, unfortunately, Puel had absolutely no idea what was said due to Carragher's strong Liverpool accent.

"We will try to keep the confidence and the feeling of the last two games without changing a lot of things, because it is important to keep the habits from these games", said Puel.

"It was a little more hard in the second half because Everton are a very good team and they tried to come back into the game".
