Iheanacho not 100% fit reveals Leicester City boss

Iheanacho not 100% fit reveals Leicester City boss

Iheanacho last week joined Leicester City who splashed £25million to get him from Manchester City.

"Although with Iheanacho you could have watched the whole box set of Game of Thrones, it felt like a saga". We've got a big and fit squad with plenty of competition for places and I'm really looking forward to it myself.

"I think back to Manuel Pellegrini's time last season at Manchester City".

It is a recruitment drive that promises to be much more successful than a year ago, when Leicester splurged more than £60m on Islam Slimani, Ahmed Musa, Nampalys Mendy and Bartosz Kapustka among others and, in terms of performances on the pitch, got precious little in return.

Fellow Eagles star Alex Iwobi will start from the bench for Arsenal.

Although Leicester accept Mahrez may well depart, they are determined to hold on to their other key players, including Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Drinkwater, who will miss the Arsenal game through injury along with Iborra. "We're a club that don't need to sell, which is vitally important", he said. "He wants to get better, he wants to play regularly and hopefully we can give him that platform".

Craig Shakespeare believes Leicester have pulled off a transfer coup by signing Kelechi Iheanacho and insists the 20-year-old can form a productive partnership with Jamie Vardy.

"I think we have those assurances so I haven't got to worry about that". The former Gunner is arguably the greatest striker that the Premier League has ever seen, so there's no doubting that he knows a world-class player when he sees one. I don't need assurances sometimes because that's what the reality is.
