Pep Guardiola has praised Claude Puel for the strides Leicester City have made since he arrived.

The City boss feels the subtle changes implemented by the manager have enhanced the squad that won the Premier League title two years ago, citing how dangerous the Foxes are going forward.

“Leicester still has the fundamentals that helped them to be champions but he [Puel] introduced a little something else,” said Guardiola.

“They have more passes. Always a strong team. We cannot forget, just two seasons ago they were champions.

“Just two players have gone, the rest are the same. [Riyad] Mahrez, [Shinji] Okazaki and Kelechi [Iheanacho] in the box is so, so dangerous.”

Pep also revealed that John Stones and Phil Foden are fit again and could be in line for a return at the Etihad Stadium, but Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and David Silva remain sidelined.
