Rodgers reveals Iheanacho will be important for Leicester City in last eleven Premier League games
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Kelechi Iheanacho will be important for Leicester City in their last eleven games in the Premier League.

The Nigeria international has a tendency to come up and score crucial goals for Leicester City this season.

The Leicester City number 14 broke the deadlock in the win against Fulham, scored a brilliant equaliser in the recent draw vs Burnley and netted a last-gasp winner against Brighton & Hove to help the Foxes book their place in the quarterfinals of the Emirates FA Cup.

On Iheanacho, Rodgers said in the pre-match press conference before the trip to Brighton & Hove : "He is very important, it was a brilliant goal, the technique in that goal last night was outstanding.

"Kelechi always gives everything to the game when he plays and he works so, so hard.

"He's scored some very important goals particularly of late, his goal and his importance is clearly there."

Iheanacho has benefited from the injury to James Maddison, starting as a support striker in a 4-4-2 formation in the last two Premier League matches played by Leicester City.
