Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has said West Ham United could make life difficult for top-four chasing Leicester City, in Wednesday’s Premier League clash at the King Power stadium, Completesports.com reports.
Leicester are winless in their last three games in all competitions, suffering two defeats and one draw.
For West Ham who recently appointed David Moyes, they have won two of their last five games, losing two and drawing one.
Leicester are in the hunt for a top-four finish and are currently third on 45 points.
And Iheanacho feels the change of manager for the Hammers could be a factor come Wednesday.
“Of course,” when he was ask if he expects a tough clash on Leicester City TV.
“In the Premier League when there’s a change of manager you will see they are different from the previous one.
“It’s always going to be difficult with a team that change their manager, always going to be a difficult one.
“And in the Premier League this season every game is hard. It’s going to be a tough one because they’ve become stronger, they are just like a proper team now.”
However Iheanacho expressed confidence that Leicester have what it takes to come out with a positive result.
He added: “So it’s going to be a tough one for us. But with the way we’ve been working and the preparation, I think we are equal to the task and we will give them a good game.”
