Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has claimed his side are still a work in progress as they continue to learn under Claude Puel.

Puel took charge of the club after Craig Shakespeare was sacked following a slow start to the season.

The former Southampton coach has guided Leicester to eighth in the Premier League table while they have also progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Puel’s men face a huge challenge on Saturday when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium but Schmeichel is still expecting a strong finish to their campaign.

Winger Riyad Mahrez continues to miss training after failing to leave in January but the Denmark international is feeling optimistic.

He told the Leicester Mercury: “The last two months apart from the Manchester City game we can look back and say we could have 10 more points and we lost points where we think we could have done better.

“That is a positive but it is a work in progress. It is a style of play we are getting used to.

Taking this game out of the equation, we do seem to be having more control in games and taking a pass extra before going for the killer pass.

“That was the kind of thing we had been doing well with but we let ourselves down with that against Everton.”

The Citizens are 1.22 to win, with the draw 6.50 while Leicester are the big outsiders at odds of 13.00.
