With no Premier League game to his name this season, Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho will be hoping that Leicester City manager, Brenda Rodgers looks towards his direction as the Foxes host Arsenal in Saturday’s Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.
Iheanacho, who was on the bench in the team’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend, last played for Leicester City on May 6, 2019, when the team lost 1-0 to Manchester City. The Nigerian international came on as a substitute for James Maddison in the 80th minute and received a yellow card in the 90th minute.
Having scored two goals in the Carabao Cup against Luton Town and Burton Albion respectively, the former Manchester City player will be hoping Rodgers considers him for the Arsenal clash on Saturday.
Saturday’s meeting represents the 142nd competitive clash between the two clubs, with Arsenal recording 66 wins in comparison to 31 victories for Leicester.
Despite the Gunners possessing a better historical record, Leicester have won each of the last two fixtures at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes recorded a 3-0 victory when the two teams last met in April this year.
