Kelechi Iheanacho’s fortunes at Leicester City is not likely to change for good anytime soon with the attacker emerging as the club’s fifth worst performer of the 2018/19 season, Completesports.com reports.
According to top football website, whoscored.com, the 22-year-old is rated 21st out of 25 players currently starring for the former Premier League champions.
Iheanacho has a very low rating of 6.23, having so far had an abysmal campaign for the Foxes which has seen him score just once in 27 EPL matches this term.
The former Nigeria youth international has scored only four goals in 48 EPL appearances since joining Leicester while losing his place in the Super Eagles’ squad.
In contrast, Iheanacho’s compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi has been having a rollercoaster season for the Foxes which has seen him emerge as the best Premier League tackler with six more games remaining.
WhoScored which rated Ndidi 7.24 had this to say about the midfielder: “A consistent performer, Wilfred Ndidi has been a critical component in the heart of City’s midfield again this season.
“He’s played in all 33 of City’s Premier League games so far and he has seldom allowed his level of performance to drop and he has completed more tackles than any other player with 123.
“Ndidi also has the most interceptions with 68 in total and the most aerial battles won with 124.”
