Paul Dummett has offered his version of events after Leicester City boss Claude Puel led the post-game protests following a penalty storm at the King Power Stadium.

This led to the Leicester bench surrounding the fourth official and Puel feeling his team had been denied a clear penalty after the game.

Dummett explained: “It looked like he was already falling before I’ve slipped but my positioning wasn’t great to let him get in.

“The linesman said he wasn’t 100% sure it was a foul, so couldn’t give it.

“It’s one that went for us and it’s brilliant to come here and win.”

After the game, Puel had told his Press conference: “Yeah, he touched his foot, for me it is a penalty.”

He said: “I have had players sent off just for touching the face of a player.

“I cannot argue too much.

“And the main thing for us was the performance of the team, we deserved to win.”
