Puel: Look Forward

Leicester City must take the opportunity to bounce back from Saturday's defeat to Manchester City when they host Sheffield United in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup later this week, says Claude Puel.

On Friday, the Foxes face Chris Wilder’s men for the second time this term, having already beaten them 4-1 at Bramall Lane in the Carabao Cup back in August.

It is a game that Puel says his side are excited to contest and with a 5-1 victory over Peterborough United coming in the previous round, the Frenchman has every reason to be positive ahead of the tie.

After the loss to Manchester City, Puel told LCFC TV: “It was difficult to play under pressure because this team also made a fantastic pressing with good quality.

“We will not play all the time a good team every week. Now, it’s important to look forward and prepare for an important game – an FA Cup game – and also a Premier League game [against Stoke City] because we have good possibilities.

“We need to forget this game. It’s difficult after the game but it will be important to look forward.

“I think also for our fans, it will be important to put it right in the next game and for the other [Premier League] game of course.”
