​Clear the air talks between Mahrez and Leicester boss Puel

Leicester boss Claude Puel and Riyad Mahrez have cleared the air at a meeting after the Algerian made clear his frustration at being substituted against West Ham last weekend.

"We spoke at training - it is not a problem," Puel said. "Riyad was a little frustrated in the second half without the possibility to touch more balls. That is a good thing, when a player is not happy.

"But now it is important to help him to have more consistency [during] the game because he is a valuable player for us.

"If he can show this game after game it will be fantastic for him and for the squad. I'm sure he will show his quality for the next game."
