Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho struggled to make an impact as Leicester City fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Manchester City in their Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Iheanacho started the game and was replaced by Harvey Barnes after the break.
He has scored three goals in 10 league appearances for the Foxes this season.

Latching onto former Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez’s pass after a superb run, Jesus slipped past Kasper Schmeichel in the 80th minute after the Dane had saved a Sergio Aguero penalty 18 minutes earlier.
In the battle of third versus second, Jamie Vardy hit the post for Leicester early on after being put through one-on-one in a goalless opening period, before Aguero’s penalty miss following a Dennis Praet handball, and Jesus’ eventual winner.
The result means second-placed Manchester City are now seven points ahead of Leicester, while the Foxes are now only six points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea with 11 to play.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
