The Leicester manager wants his outfit to improve their home form having not won on Filbert Way in the top flight since their brilliant 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Boxing Day.
However, while the Red Devils head into the fixture as favourites following eight victories in their last nine outings in all competitions, Puel was happy to draw parallels between Sunday’s game and their recent clashes with Chelsea, Man City, Everton and Liverpool.
“Liverpool also was a team with a lot of points at home,” said the manager when discussing Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield. “We showed a lot of quality.
Puel: We Will Have Good Togetherness
Claude Puel shares his thoughts with the press ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.
“It was the same against Chelsea and Man City. I don’t say, of course, we can make all the time upsets against big teams, but it will be a good challenge.
“We know their quality, we know we can make a difference. We can have good quality on the pitch. This game gives us a good feeling and a good spirit.
“I hope we can give our best on Sunday. It would be fantastic if we can give a reward to our fans because at home, we haven’t performed enough, and we haven’t had good enough results.”
Puel highlighted the displays of 2018 World Cup winner Paul Pogba in his pre-match press conference, emphasising the all-action midfielder’s ability to change a game at any time.

He added: “Paul Pogba showed his quality in all of these (Manchester United’s) games and he showed a fantastic work on the pitch with assists and goals. In this moment, he can raise the game. He’s a fantastic player.
“We know his quality. He won the World Cup. I think he’s a fantastic player. To give this impact in the right way, he can give assists, he can cross, he can break the line, he can score – he is a complete player.
“They found in this moment a freedom in their play to give their best.”
