Leicester City’s winless run in the Premier League stretched to three games with defeat against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. Luka Milivojevic’s first half strike for the hosts was enough to earn the Eagles three points and send the Foxes back to the King Power Stadium empty handed.
The visitors had more shots and a greater share of the possession but were unable to make their superiority in these areas pay off.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
After the game, Leicester manager Claude Puel told the BBC, “We had three or four chances to come back into the game. We deserved to come back but it is a big disappointment because we need the points…We were unlucky at the end but we lost three points. It is important to correct this and to play a consistent game from the start until the end.”
Many Leicester fans, though, may feel that this is not a new problem, and that the Frenchman has so far failed to make any progress in this area. What’s more, the current brand of football being played by the 2015/16 Premier League title-winners lacks pace, aggressiveness and excitement.
This lack of consistency and cutting edge is clearly beginning to turn a portion of the supporters against Puel. After this latest defeat, plenty of Foxes fans took to Twitter to urge the club to sack the manager…
Please … all I want for Christmas
Is the sacking of Claude Puel.

We’re absolutely dross under Puel. No progress made in the last 12 months, he’s got to go. Problem finding someone available that will do a decent job to replace him. #lcfc

Backed Puel for a long time but his persistence with Nididi and Mendy has done for me as much as anything in the end. Miserable to watch and neither are that good. #LCFC

Tide is shifting against Puel, others questioning his tactics and motivation skills and not getting best out of players. Tic toc
