It’s always tough to take when you find your football team on the wrong side of a thriller, yet Leicester City fans had to suffer that fate today. Claude Puel’s side fought back from 2-0 down and 3-2 down to equalise twice, however they were eventually undone by a late, late Diogo Jota strike, and in the aftermath, they’ve been calling for Puel’s head.

Puel’s job hasn’t been safe for a while, and whilst the loss today is one that will have stung, the supporters are still eagerly waiting to see if their club will come out and part with the Frenchman. It seems that some of them have short memories after beating both Chelsea and Manchester City in December, but it’s more the tactics than the results that is frustrating the Foxes.
If Puel does get the boot at the King Power Stadium then the question will be who comes in to replace him, and that’s a hard question to answer. The Frenchman has mostly been a hit in English football results-wise, yet at both Southampton and now Leicester he’s found himself getting on the wrong side of the fans, and the pressure on him at Leicester is continually growing.

If Puel stays more than 1 hour past the end of this game then we cement our place as an embarrassment. #puelout

The Foxes would love to see Puel gone before they face Liverpool a week on Wednesday.
