West Ham United guaranteed their Premier League safety with a victory over Leicester City at the weekend, meaning that whatever happens in the Play-Offs with Aston Villa, Snodgrass will be a Premier League player next season.
Without a win since the end of January, Puel confessed the level of performance exhibited from his side was poor and understood why they were met with a chorus of boos at full time.
"In a hard period we always have some negativity and blame, it is normal", he said. It was a tough period in October. I think we can have a good feeling and ambition back.
Second best for large parts of the game, a first half strike from Joao Mario and stunning second half volley from Mark Noble secured all three points for the visitors, resigning the Foxes to their fourth defeat in their last five games. Perhaps that step was too high.
"After we have had the opportunity to play for qualification for Europe next season".
"These players are capable of winning games", he told Sky Sports. Riyad Mahrez hasn't been performing at all of late so he could be a casualty if the manager wants to make a statement, as the likelihood of the Algerian being at the club next year appear to be pretty slim. It isn't easy to predict the Irons' future, especially because they do not have a board with good knowledge and ambitious to find a good coach in European football.
I can definitely see goals at both ends, so I wouldn't put you off a both teams to score bet, but it could easily be 1-1 or 2-2 - leaving this market a bit of a puzzle.
"I'm actually now thinking how many points can we get and where can we finish in the league table".
