Iheanacho Nets 11th EPL Goal On 85th Leicester Appearance, Ndidi Makes 130th Start!

Kelechi Iheanacho scored his second Premier League goal of the season in his sixth start in 14 appearances as Leicester secured a point at Turf Moor against Burnley.

The goal was the Nigerian’s 11th in 85 Premier League appearances for the Foxes since he made the switch from Manchester City to Leicester City in the summer of 2017.

It was also Iheanacho’s 34th Premier League start for the club in four seasons.

The 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup winner has now scored 23 goals overall in 131 appearances in the competition.

The goal was his first in his second start in five games against the Clarets. Prior to Wednesday night’s tie the Nigerian has only bagged an assist against Sean Dyche’s men and that came in his first season with Foxes. He assisted Jamie Vardy to score the consolation goal in a 2-1 loss at the Turf Moor in April 2018.

Iheanacho’s goal Wednesday night was assisted by compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi. It was the first time the midfielder will be providing assist for his international teammate since they both started playing together at Leicester City in the 2017/18 season.

It was Ndidi’s seventh assist for the Foxes in the competition since he made his debut in January 2017 after switching from RC Genk in Belgium to the King Palace stadium outfit.

Ndidi has made 14 starts in 15 appearances for the club so far this term, scoring once and bagging two assists.

Overall, it was his 130th start in 135 Premier League games for the Foxes with seven goals scored.
