Leicester City won battling Brentford in today’s match. Brentford had a great performance in today’s match just as they did against Chelsea in their last match. Brentford tried getting back into the game after they scored an equalizer, but Leicester City fought back and took the lead back. Leicester City might not have the perfect start to the season but they’ve been performing well in recent matches.
Kelechi Iheanacho played a major role in Leicester City’s victory today. The Super Eagles striker opened up about his few playing minutes today he played till the final whistle went off. Brendan Rodgers substituted Jamie Vardy for Patson Daka instead of Kelechi Iheanacho. Kelechi Iheanacho’s performance improves game after game, here are two things he did today that he needs to do regularly to improve the team.
1. Pressing From The Front
Just like he did against Manchester United in their last match, Kelechi Iheanacho pressed from the front making it difficult for defenders to play from the back. Lucky for Brentford they didn’t give the ball away like Manchester United did on several occasions last week. Kelechi Iheanacho might become defenders nightmare if he keeps up with his current form.
2. Being The Main Target In Set Piece Situations
Kelechi Iheanacho played a major role in Leicester City’s opening goal. Kelechi Iheanacho was the initial target after James Maddison played the free kick in but the defender redirected the ball and Youri Tielemans scored a belter. Kelechi Iheanacho was the main target not only from set pieces but from corner kicks as well.
