An early Demarai Gray goal put the Foxes on the road to victory against the Clarets in a game that could have seen Puel’s men further ahead by the time the final whistle blew – moving City onto 20 points in the process.

Gray’s strike came after Riyad Mahrez lofted a lovely pass towards the far post for his team-mate, who collided with the woodwork in the process.

He struck the upright with the ball late on too, as the Foxes piled the pressure on the visitors but in the end had to settle for a narrow victory to strengthen their grip on ninth place.

Afterwards, Puel was delighted to see his side continue to evolve their style of play with a positive result, leaving them with a record of just one defeat in their previous 10 games in all competitions.

He said at full-time: “My team is progressing and it was amazing to see them in the second half with this quality and with all these chances. The late chances were without the clinical edge of course but it bodes well for the future.

“We needed to score another goal in the second half because with just one goal they could still put us under pressure with the long ball, long throw in or from a second ball inside the box.

It was interesting to see the reaction in the second half with the good football, good play on the floor and creating chances, which was very encouraging.

“It would be better to score another goal but it was good to have all these chances, we could have scored three or four more goals in the second half with the good football.

"It was difficult against Burnley because they pressed us and put us under pressure at times. It was interesting to see the reaction in the second half with the good football, good play on the floor and creating chances, which was very encouraging.”
