Nigerian Striker, Kelechi Iheanacho Now Fit For Leicester City




Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho is fit to start for Leicester City for their away trip to Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday, September 16.

Iheanacho has been struggling with injury and fitness since he made the £25m move from Manchester City in the summer.

After playing two games for the Super Eagles during the international break, the striker was a late substitute for Leicester City in their home 2-1 defeat to Chelsea last week.

He played and scored for the Leicester City U-23 team during the week and ahead of their trip to Huddersfield Town, Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare believes the 20-year-old is ready.

Thankfully most of them have come through. Vicente Iborraand Kelechi Iheanacho [both had] a clean bill of health,” Shakespeare said in Thursday’s press conference.





















The striker has not started any game for Leicester City since he joined in the summer, making two substitute appearances so far in the Premier League.
Leicester City have lost three of their four Premier League games this season- to Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea- but their performances in those defeats have drawn praises from many quarters.
Ahead of the away trip to Huddersfield Town, Iheanacho wants the performances to turn into points.
"It would be a boost for us to get three points," the striker said.
"We have lost three big games and won one, so we need to keep going. We need to keep working hard.















"Everyone watching our team, knows we are playing well everyday every game but the points are not coming. So that is what we need to put in Place to make sure we finish well."
Iheanacho is also careful of new promoted Huddersfield who have won two of their four Premier League games this season urging his teammates not to 'mess around' in the game and 'fight for 90 minutes'.
