Claude Puel says the Southampton fans can play an integral role in helping his side turn their Premier League form around.

Saints are without a victory in their last four league fixtures and come up against reigning champions Leicester City at St Mary’s this weekend.

Puel said: “It will be a strong game and I hope we have the support of our fans because it’s very important for us at home to make the difference.

“I think it will be a difficult game, because we are in the same situation with Leicester.

“We need points now after we lost against Burnley and I know we need to give a good answer.

“It’s the same for Leicester who play with a strong block and counter-attack. It’s important for us to have a good concentration and focus about this game without conceding chances.

“We have plenty of time to focus on Liverpool but Leicester City is the most important game because we are in difficulties in the second part of the table.”
