Leicester vs Cardiff
Venue: King Power Stadium
Kick off: 4PM
Claude Puel wants Leicester to maintain their winning momentum in the Premier League when they host Cardiff this afternoon.
The Foxes have beaten Chelsea and Manchester City over the festive period and manager Puel wants his side to keep up their fine performances as they head into 2019.
He said: “These two games were fantastic challenges and we created the upset. Okay, it’s good, it’s perfect, but now we need to maintain a consistency and our mentality.
“They are special games because we played great teams with a lot of possession and a good organisation. We made a fantastic work on the pitch with the right mentality, a positive attitude.
“We play against Cardiff in the next game, it will be a different game. We must keep this feeling and togetherness.”
Meanwhile, Cardiff boss Neil Warnock says he is proud of how his side have faced adversity since he took charge in October 2016, saying: “In the last couple of years we’ve had challenges thrown at us all the time.
“We’ve run where we should be walking, we’ve actually had to sprint! First of all it was to avoid relegation to League One, then to try to get a squad to compete in the Championship, then when we were up there to try and keep us up.
“Then when we got promotion, can we improve the squad and now can we stay in the league? Every six months it’s been an absolute battle for us, maximum requirements.”
