  • Leicester City name Claude Puel as new manager

Gray refers to Demarai, who was also credited for a goal when Jonjoe Kenny flubbed a clearing attempt of his cross into the Everton goal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has backed Claude Puel to make an impact in his new role as boss of Leicester City.

Unsworth made a double switch at half time with Oumar Niasse and Beni Baningime replacing Kevin Mirallas and Lennon but despite an improvement Kasper Schmeichel was rarely troubled.

"Was it a big desire of yours to come back to the Premier League after what happened last season at Southampton?".

26-year-old Mahrez handed in a transfer request during the summer in a bid to force a move away from the Foxes, however the former PFA Player of the Year ended up staying with Leicester as no deal could be agreed for his transfer elsewhere.

David Unsworth's side have now conceded first in 11 out of their previous 13 games in all competitions.


A roller coaster few years for the midlands club have seen them win the Championship title, stave off relegation against the odds and become Premier League champions, bringing Champions League football to the King Power Stadium. I'm sure that he will continue and develop at Leicester. The boys know if we score the first goal we can be flying from there.

"It was more hard in the second half because Everton are good. It's a new start".

"It was a very good first half and there were good combinations between the players for the first goal", Claude Puel told Sky Sports. He said this week he didn't want to change too much - just tactical tweaks.

On his goal, the England striker said: "We've hit them on the counter, Demarai gets on the ball and produces a bit of magic and it has split them wide open".

The England Under-21 global produced a sparkling run and pass for Riyad Mahrez to set up Jamie Vardy for the opener and was credited with the second goal after defender John-Joe Kenny deflected the ball past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. We need three points quickly.
