​Leicester still fighting for Europa League qualification

Leicester's fight for a seventh-place finish in the Premier League and qualification for the Europa League remains boss Claude Puel's top priority despite their recent defeat to Newcastle.

"We need a result of course, for a manager the most important thing is to keep the right way and to keep players sometimes fans, sometimes press, I think the right way," he said.

"We've improved a lot since I've come in, and we play with a collective performance, we've shown a lot of quality in games. We're ambitious, we'll try to finish well this season off course. It was a big disappointment after Newcastle because we wasted points, we wasted this game."

Puel added: "The next two games are crucial for me, to see if we can decide and believe in something or not, it'll be a good challenge. We have to start against Burnley - they have a six-point advantage."
