Kelechi Iheanacho is on fine form for Leicester City – scoring seven goals in his last four games.
The Nigerian striker showed a lot of potential at the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup, where he won the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament.
After the competition, he joined Manchester City and had an impressive start with the Cityzens under Manuel Pellegrini.
However, he failed to impress Pep Guardiola and joined Leicester City in 2017.
After joining the Foxes, it was believed – that the Nigerian striker – will establish himself as one of the best strikers in the league.
But a series of inconsistent performances hampered his growth at the Foxes Stadium. The poor form stretched to the beginning of the season, where he rarely gets a playing chance in the team.
With Leicester City out of form with a lot of players suffering from injuries – Brendan Rodgers changed his setup with Iheanacho and Vardy playing upfront.
The system benefitted the Nigerian striker, while according to Optastat, he has been involved in fifteen goals in fifteen starts in all competitions.
“Kelechi Ịheanachọ has now had a direct hand in 15 goals in his 15 starts across all competitions this season (11 goals and 4 assists), eight of which have come in his last four matches (7 goals and 1 assist).
The stats and new form of the Nigerian striker showed that he is fulfilling the promise he showed in 2013.
