Manchester United will host Leicester City by 8.00pm tonight in the start of the 2019 English Premier League, and the Foxes boss Claude Puel has called on Kelechi Iheanacho to score at Old Trafford and give Leicester a bright start.
Iheanacho, seem to have rediscovered his form as was seen in Leicester Pre-season tour, scoring four goals in three appearances including a brace against Lille of France.
‘’He is focused. He made a good performance (against Lille), but the most important thing is to present against Manchester United,’’ Puel was quoted as saying by Leicester Mercury.
‘’We know a friendly game is always different. Of course I am happy about his performance and the performance of the other players.
‘’It has been a difficult pre-season with all the international players coming back step by step and without the good levels and freshness necessary to play 90 minutes.’’
The 21-year-old Iheanacho, who was signed from Manchester City in 2017, has scored 8 goals in 28 appearances for Leicester City.
