A clear affront to Foxes coach Claude Puel. He claimed to have sought the interview this week with his keeper and vice-captain. Everything was so bad, the Frenchman said. Really? The fact is, flattery is not the only player who seems to have lost confidence in the Frenchman. Earlier, star striker Jamie Vardy commented negatively on Puel’s style of play. At the end of last season there were rumors that Puel would not have the cabin on his side and also in the current season Puel would probably have been dismissed, the club would not have overshadowed the helicopter crash, the club boss Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha be Lost life. The Foxes have been without victory for five Premier League games (0-1-5). Last time there was a longer dry spell for Leicester in October 2017 with six winless games.

In calendar year 2019, only Fulham (three) and Huddersfield (one) and Brighton (two), who are on the two relegation places, scored less points than Leicester (four). In addition, Leicester threatened for the first time since January 2000 four home defeats in a row in the Premier League. The fans have also clearly expressed their displeasure over Puel.

At home striker Jamie Vardy scored just two of his eight Premier League goals this season. He has not met in any of the last four Premier League matches at King Power.
