Puel confident Southampton can handle busy week

Southampton boss Claude Puel is confident they can handle a busy week ahead.

Following the West Ham game today, Southampton's European campaign continues with a five-hour flight to southern Israel for Thursday night's Europa League tie against Hapoel Be'er Sheva before preparing to tackle Leicester on Sunday.

“With all of these matches it is important to keep good energy and possibilities. We must keep the same identity now all of the players have this philosophy and it is important to keep this idea, the level of our game," Puel said.

“Our different players can show their qualities, because they all participate with the same idea and organisation.

“This means we have the possibilities to change the starting line-up of the team without changing the style of the team, we must continue with this way."

Puel added: “These three games away are going to be difficult but also a very good challenge, in that my players can show they have the ability to stay strong with a good level and I hope with good results."
