​Puel claims Leicester winger Mahrez an improved player since going AWOL

Leicester boss Claude Puel believes Riyad Mahrez has improved following his self-imposed exile from the squad.

When asked if he believed Mahrez was back to his normal level, Puel said: "Yeah, I think better. He enjoys playing and training with his team-mates. He is at a good level and without problems.

"I think it is important now to put an end to the talking about Riyad. He has come back; he came in against Manchester City. Now we need to move on and for him, he has to kick on.

"The most important thing now is the future."
