where he made many changes to the team in the League Cup, where he was eliminated by Manchester United, and did the same in the FA Cup, where in this cup was eliminated by Newport.
Now all the attention is turned to the English Championship. Puel’s team need to improve their performance at home, Leicester at Power Stadium has only 14 points with four wins, two draws and four defeats.
After the defeat to the FA Cup with Newport County. Claude Puel hopes his team will recover from the unexpected defeat and try to go further in the standings.

Football Prediction Leicester vs Southampton
Ralph Hasenhuttl, who has just been elected, is still undecided about which strategy to use as he has begun to win, but has recently had negative results.
Southampton are now in a fierce fight for relegation, with 2 points behind the safety zone. For Saturday’s game, defender Ryan Bertrand and striker Michael Obafemi appear to be unfit.
The Foxes with their recent league appearances, which have led them to beat Chelsea and Manchester City, should be enough to ensure victory.
