Leicester are eighth in the table with 43 points, six points behind Sean Dyche's Burnley.
Dyche's remarkable success has been built on a small, tight squad and meticulous preparation, things that would be severely tested by the Europa League.
"We've had to work for everything today", said Dyche, whose side made it five consecutive top-flight wins for the first time since 1968.
With five games of the season to go, Leicester are still targeting a top ten finish and Puel is hoping their second-half performance can carry through into their remaining fixtures this term. It's impossible for there to be a negative.
EPL: Burnley ambush Foxes
All Whites striker Chris Wood scored for Burnley in a 2-1 victory over his former side, Leicester, in the English Premier League, on Sunday morning (NZ time).
"For Burnley Football Club even to be spoken about, it's a long, long way from where we were, it's a long, long way from where we were at the end of last season. But I've got no loyalties to them any more so hopefully we'll have a good weekend".
"I have confidence with Silva, of course, and the young player, Choudhury". Leicester, who gave a full Premier League debut to 20-year-old midfielder Hamza Choudhury, simply could not deal with the energy and physicality of the Clarets, although they did not help themselves. For example, our first half in the last game, it was not enough with the play forward or the quality and I like when my players play with this good tempo and good quality and to play this way is encouraging.
"I think we have at this moment, to manage the next game and to keep our ambition, but without forgetting all the good work we can do together". "It was a big disappointment after Newcastle because with this defeat we wasted points".
"At the beginning of the game, in the first seven or eight minutes, we conceded two goals".
