If you have a look at the team, the way we play, and also the guys on the bench, we’re all together, the Nigerian International said to Leicester City’s website

It’s going to be a tough game, he added.
Everyone wants points against us because we are on a good run. We don’t focus on being a team people want to beat. We just know what we need to do. We know we have to try and win games. There’s so many of them so everybody is ready. The guys who are starting, the guys who are coming on, the guys who are not playing, everybody is together. We are level-headed.
There is no guarantee we are going to win games, there will be ups and downs. We will keep working and stick to the manager’s philosophy.
