Rodgers: Iheanacho At The Top Of His Game 

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says Kelechi Iheanacho is currently at the top of his game in terms of confidence after his strike sealed a first FA Cup final appearance for the Foxes since 1969.

Iheanacho scored the only goal – his 10th in the last seven matches – early in the second half to end Southampton’s campaign and set up a Final with Chelsea next month.

Since the start of the 2015-16 season, no player has scored more in the FA Cup than Iheanacho, who also struck twice to knock out Manchester United in the last eight.

“The club have been waiting a long time to get to an FA Cup Final,” Rodgers said in his post-match press conference. “It’s something I’ve been made well aware of and something that means a lot to the supporters.

“We deserved it. We didn’t concede any efforts on goal, and as the game wore on we looked really bright.

“The two of them [Vardy and Iheanacho] are a real threat. Jamie may not be scoring but he gives us so much and Kelechi is such a great guy who is at the top of his game in terms of confidence.”

And speaking on getting the solitary goal for Leicester, Iheanacho said:”The FA Cup loves me and I love the FA Cup. I was in the right place at the right time. I’ve been unlucky in the past few years but it’s working out well now and I need to go to the next level.”

And on his partnership with Jamie Vardy, he added:”The partnership is outstanding. He has pace, he has everything. He set up the goal and I was in the right place at the right time.”
