Iheanacho: Leicester City Ready For Tough Leeds United Test

Kelechi Iheanacho insists Leicester City’s trip to Leeds United provides an opportunity to continue the Foxes’ impressive recent results on the road.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will square up against Leeds United for the first time since a Carabao Cup last 16 tie in October 2017, when Iheanacho  was on the scoresheet in a 3-1 home win.

The Nigeria international believes Leeds’ early season form indicates that the Foxes will be presented with a tough task to overcome them at Elland Road on Monday evening.

“It will be a great opportunity to play them once again,” the 24-year-old told LCFC TV.

”I ve played against them before. It was my first Leicester City goal, so hopefully if I get a chance then I will be able to do the same, it will be a great occasion.

“They are back stronger now and they’ve been doing well and having a good run in the Premier League. I think it will be a good test for us and hopefully we can get the points that we need.”

Iheanacho has been impressed with how Monday night’s opponents have taken to the Premier League under Marcelo Bielsa.

He is expecting the Yorkshire outfit to come into the game full of confidence after a 3-0 away victory over the previously unbeaten Aston Villa last time out, thanks to a hat-trick from Patrick Bamford.

However, he is also confident that City will be fully prepared for the challenge awaiting them. 

“I’ve been watching a little bit of their matches and they’ve been brilliant since coming into the Premier League,” the Nigerian added.

“They’ve been on a good run and they are quite strong as well so I think we just need to keep doing what we are doing.

“We’ve been doing well ourselves and we’ve had a good away record so we just need to keep that and the good run and keep a clean sheet.”
