Leicester City boss Claude Puel says side must stay focused if they’re to continue their good run of form when he visits his former side Southampton.

The Foxes arrive at St Mary’s on the back of a third straight Premier League win, which came in a 3-2 success at Newcastle United.

But with Saints producing a string of strong performances themselves, Puel is wary of the quality of his former employers.

“It will be another great opponent. They stayed with a good performance against Manchester City and Arsenal. We know their quality and it will be important for us to find good play, consistency and keep a good focus about our game,” said Puel.

“It will be a strange feeling to go back to St Mary’s stadium but it will be nice to see some familiar faces of course, but the most important thing is to keep focused about my players and to make a strong game against this team.

“We are in good form, but it is the same thing for Southampton, because their performances have been at a high level so it will be a good balance between the two teams so hopefully we can see a good game.”
