Iheanacho Seeks First Premier League Goal Of 2017!

Iheanacho Seeks First Premier League Goal Of 2017!

By Dare Esan:

This may look incredible but it is the gospel truth. Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, is yet to score in the English Premier League in the year 2017 and tonight’s game at the King Power stadium where his club Leicester City host West Brom offers him that opportunity to rediscover his scoring form.

Iheanacho’s last league goal came on Monday December 26, 2016 at the KC Stadium where he scored the second goal on 78 minutes in Manchester City’s 3-0 bashing of Hull City.

It was the Nigerian’s fourth Premier League goal in the 20 games (15 as a substitute) he played for the Citizens before his switch to Leicester City last summer.

This term, Iheanacho has started one of five Premier League games for Leicester and will hope to not only make his second start, but curiously find the back of the net on a Monday night. Remember his last Premier League goal was scored on a Monday.

Meanwhile, Iheanacho’s Nigerian compatriots at the club Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa will also hope to play their part to steer the former Premier League champions from the brink of relegation.

While Ndidi is certain to make his eighth start in eight Premier League games, Musa will be seeking to get listed, at least for his first Premier League game.


  • An leta u will blame pep
    U can’t play unda pep and remain dsame

  • He will score if giving time

  • He has not been given enough playing time,so he can’t be called an under performer.

    • He wasn’t giving enuf tym in Mancity too…He was always playing fiddle to Kun Aguero,the only difference was that he took his opportunity well.

  • Kelechi is too slow and when he runs, he look like someone that is about to fall as if he was tripped by someone else.

  • I don’t know if Nigerians are watching this kid career since Gabriel Jesus came to Manchester United and his subsequent transfer to Leicester? Did you notice that he has not been the same and he seems to be going down? I have just gone to look at the team list and he is not in the 1st XI. Somebody of his calibre should be having first team play. So what is the problem?

  • Wishi him good luck is a prolific striker bt chance ad time not his side yet

  • No_good_midfielders_at_lesicester_to_feed_him_the_ball_unlike_city

  • He rather cursed a goal by giving away a stupid free kick

    This man has to earn nigerians’ trust back, no more stories and excuses. He led the group of our good young players who could change nigeria’s football story, bt now, Onyekuru leads that group.

  • He needs to improve on his match fitness level.
