Mahrez majestic as Leicester come back to beat West Brom 4-1

"Before you even ask me the question, will I speak to those upstairs?"

Albion now find themselves in a hard position in more ways than one, with the club anxious to avoid making a managerial change for the second time this season, partly because of the financial implications but largely as there are no credible alternatives, internally or externally, to take over from Pardew with only eight fixtures left and relegation looking a formality. I don't care whatever job or workplace you're in, if you're under pressure and you don't want to fight, don't bother turning up. "He can recovered a lot of balls, he is strong in the duels and now, when he plays simple with quality, he can give a good start in our play", Puel added.

He also accused Grzegorz Krychowiak of behaving disrespectfully after the midfielder refused to shake his hand when he was substituted in the second half. I made it very clear to him on the bench I'm not accepting that.

Leicester assistant boss Michael Appleton, who played for Albion between 2001 and 2003 and was briefly caretaker manager in 2011, would be a candidate. I'm not going to make a big deal about it.

Leicester manager Claude Puel praised his players for taking control of a lively encounter during the second period.

The Foxes had to come from behind to notch their first victory since mid-January after Salomón Rondón had opened the scoring for the home side with an excellent finish. However, the away side responded emphatically when Jamie Vardy was on cue to sumptuously volley in Riyad Mahrez's delivery just after 20 minutes. It was end-to-end and box-to-box. The first half could have finished 3-3.

The Frenchman said, as quoted by Leicester Mercury: "It was a good opportunity and a fantastic goal".
