Kelechi Iheanacho Leicester

The Nigerian will start as a sub against the Clarets at Turf Moor, with Wilfred Ndidi and Daniel Amartey expectedly ruled out to injuries

Brendan Rodgers has chosen to start Kelechi Iheanacho on the bench for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Burnley.

The Foxes are hoping to return to winning ways after their 2-1 home defeat to Southampton the last time out, where the Nigerian was a second-half replacement for Harvey Barnes.

With Leicester playing a 4-5-1 formation – and Jamie Vardy the lone striker, Iheanacho would be hoping for playing time as a substitute.

In six appearances English topflight appearances so far this season, Iheanacho boasts of three goals – to equal his highest tally since he joined the King Power outfit from Manchester City.

As expected, Wilfred Ndidi and Daniel Amartey will play no part in the encounter owing to various degrees of injuries.

The former English champions are third in the log with 45 points from 22 outings.
