Kelechi Iheanacho has scored three goals in the past three games and he is available for selection to extend his scoring streak as Leicester City takes on Manchester United on Sunday afternoon in the English Premier League, EPL.
The in form Nigeria has been in great form since he regains his starting position in Brendan Rodger's team.
Brendan once again called upon Iheancho when it seems all hope is lost after Jamie Vardy's injury and the "senior man" has been outstanding as the Super Eagles have scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists to keep the foxes safe above the relegation waters.
Rodgers who acknowledged his red-hot form will be relying on the Nigerian forward to deliver the goods at Old Trafford on Sunday against the Red devils.
Rodgers said: “ He’s at a prime age. I see it every day in training. When his touch is good, he’s a top-class striker.”
“He’s worked very hard in the game and his hold-up play has been very good. He’s looked like a threat. I’m delighted for him. It’s just about the consistency now.” he added.
However, the journey to Old Trafford may not come as easy as Manchester United have won eight out of their last 11 matches at Trafford losing once and drawing twice.
Leicester City however has a superb record against Manchester United in their last five meetings as the foxes have won three times, lost one, and drawn once.
