Claude Puel: 'Leicester City not close to new signings'

Slimani has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season

PremierGoals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez helped Leicester secure a routine 2-0 victory over Watford at the King Power on Saturday.

Watford's recent run of just one win - against Leicester on Boxing Day - in 10 league matches rarely looked like being improved upon, as their opponents dominated the first period.

"I don't lose my focus, I know our competence of a team as well".

"For Slimani, I can not give all the ties about an individual player", he said.

The Foxes have kept a clean sheet in their last two Premier League games - as many as they had in their previous 14 in the competition.

The defeat means Watford have only won once in their last 11 Premier League games, leaving them in 10th when they were as high as fourth in October.

"We work to take points to win all the matches".

Dow rises 133 points on better-than-expected earnings
European bourses opened lower, mirroring moves in Asia and Wall Street overnight, as earnings updates from companies weighed. Wall Street's main indexes rose on Wednesday as investors' expectations for higher earnings lifted stocks across sectors.

"Yesterday we lost two more players - Gomes and Cleverley - and our injuries are really big".

"If the best teams in the Premier League don't have six players in the starting XI think how the team is different".

Andre Gray made an impression late on after coming on as a substitute, before Mahrez's fine solo goal made sure of three points for Leicester as they moved above Burnley on goal difference.

But the Hornets failed to deal with the Foxes, who sacked Craig Shakespeare when they were in the bottom three in October and Puel now has them sitting seventh in a European spot.

The Blues have kept a close eye on the player's development this season.

"The next game in the FA Cup (at Peterborough) will be hard in a good atmosphere and little stadium".
