Opponents Bournemouth have yielded seven points from their opening four games, beating Cardiff City and West Ham United, as well as earning a 2-2 draw against Everton.
“I like their philosophy and their style of play because they work hard and they are an example for a lot of teams with good stability in the club,” Puel told the media on Thursday.
“They have a good development of their players and squad. They keep their players and build a good philosophy and it will be a tight game because they started very well in their play and mentality. It will be a strong challenge for us.”
Last time out, City were edged 2-1 by Liverpool at King Power Stadium and Puel wants his side to start Saturday’s game on the south coast with a real intensity.
“I think we have to improve about our beginning of the game since the kick-off because we concede goals and chances, and then we have to come back into the game,” he added.

“Of course, we have correct this situation because after we show a lot of positive things and quality, the spirit and mentality, the recovery of the ball and our play.
“It is a shame to start too slow. We have to correct this of course because after we play an encouraging game with a good mentality with a lot of opportunities to score and make the difference. We have to learn and correct this.”
