Leicester City should have defeated Burnley – Kelechi Iheanacho


Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, feels they should have beaten Burnley on Wednesday night, following their 1-1 draw.

Brendan Rodgers’ men travelled to Turf Moor after home defeats to Slavia Prague and Arsenal in their last two fixtures.

They conceded in the fourth minute by Matej Vydra’s strike. However, Iheanacho’s brilliant volley past Nick Pope from Wilfred Ndidi’s assist levelled the scores.

“It wasn’t a bad game,” Iheanacho told LCFC TV. “I think it was a tough game for us and Burnley, they gave us a bit of heat, but we’ll take a point.

“It was a slow start from us, but after that goal, we got the momentum, got the rhythm, got them running and got the equaliser. We are together as a group and as a team.

“We’re talking about the little run from Jamie [Vardy] and the pass from Wilf [Ndidi] – that was the goal for me. So, it was a great goal.

“Playing with Jamie, I like playing with him. He’s a runner, if you have a great runner in the team, we know we have to find him, and give him good front passes for him to finish up. I like partnering with Jamie. It’s good.”
