The 2015 FIFA under 17 world cup winner was given a surprise starting role by coach Brendan Rodgers on his birthday, having started all the team’s English Premier League matches from the bench this season, and he was able to impress, as he helped them to secure a well deserved away point in the entertaining encounter.
Kelechi Iheanacho had a remarkable 2020/2021 English Premier League season, and he was able to score the total number of 18 goals for the club in all competitions, which made him to become the club’s highest goal scorer last season.
Despite the fact that Kelechi Iheanacho had a memorable 2020/2021 season with the Foxes, he was dropped to the bench this season by Brendan Rodgers, and England national team star James Maddison has been preferred ahead of him in the team’s attack.
Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy formed good partner last season, but the former Liverpool football club head coach lose trust in the Nigerian international this season, and that has really affected them in the league, as they’ve struggled to win matches in the League this season.
Iheanacho was exceptional for the Foxes last week Wednesday, as he scored a beautiful long range goal for the club in their remarkable 2-0 home League victory over Millwall football club in the Carabao Cup to guide his team to the next round of the competition.
The Nigerian went on to provide an assist to Jamie Vardy after being introduced to the pitch against Burnley FC last week Saturday and he was able to mark his excellent performance on Sunday with a goal.
With Kelechi Iheanacho’s dazzling display against Patrick Vieira led Crystal Palace football club, it means he deserved a regular playing time, and coach Brendan Rodgers needs to reintroduce him to his team’s first eleven, in order to get back to winning way in the league.
