Style of play bodes well for season, says Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson
Nigel Pearson has admitted some of his new arrivals are still getting to grips with the Championship, but he said he is pleased with the style of football his new-look side are playing.
The City boss, who has the likes of Jamie Vardy, Matty James and Liam Moore all acclimatising to Championship football, said he would like his side to tighten up defensively but, overall, has been satisfied with the way they have started the campaign.
Saturday's 1-0 victory against Blackpool made it two home wins and two away defeats in the league as they go into the first international break, and Pearson said he felt positive about the rest of the campaign.
"I would like us to be a little tighter but, because we have made the number of changes we have made and we have players who are still getting to grips with the Championship, you are going to have times when things aren't exactly as you would want them," he said after the victory against the previously-unbeaten Tangerines.

"Having said that, even in the spell where they had more possession and a few more opportunities, we still looked exceptionally dangerous on the counter-attack.
"I think that bodes well for us and I am pretty relaxed with the style of play we have got at the moment.
"I would like us to tighten up a wee bit. We could be sitting better off than we are at the moment but we are not. But I still think it was a very positive day for the club.
"The tempo of our game was very good. We dominated possession and didn't allow them to settle on the ball."
