first_imgLeicester City manager Claude Puel has bemoaned his team’s slow start in their defeat to Manchester United.The Leicester boss insists his team slow start cost them in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.Leicester City conceded a penalty as early as the third minute when Daniel Amartey handled the ball in the box and United’s captain for the night Paul Pogba duly converted.Luke Shaw scored his first professional goal when he was put to through on goal by Juan Mata to double United’s lead.Jamie Vardy pulled one back for the Foxes in added time but it was too little and too late to affect the scoreline at that point.“It’s disappointing for the players because they gave their best,” said Puel, according to Goal.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“Of course, to concede a goal just a couple of seconds after the beginning of the game is a shame and we have to correct this.“Our kick-off was not good enough. Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances. We needed to score in this moment, a strong period of domination in the first-half.“We pushed and we played against a team who were deep on the pitch. Without space, it was difficult.“We found success with good moves and good quality and perhaps in the second half we had good energy to finish this performance for another result but I think at the end it is a disappointment. It is not, for me, a fair result.”“We dominated this game with good play and a lot of chances. With a lot of free-kicks and set pieces, we can do a lot better with these situations,” Puel continued.“Sometimes we were unlucky with the possibilities to score in different moves. I’m happy about the performance but it would have been better to win or draw for our fans. It would have been a good reward for our play.”last_img
