Iheanacho has scored six times in 10 games in all competitions, including a header against Wednesday’s Premier League opponents West Ham United.

The 23-year-old frontman is now eyeing further involvement for the Foxes, and has credited his team-mates for the way they have supported him this campaign.

Iheanacho said: “It’s been a good season, to be fair. Pre-season and getting the work done in pre-season [and] getting into the season, it’s not been easy, but I need to keep working hard and I’ll get my chance.

“It’s been a good season. It’s a good group of boys, they’re like family, with everyone together and the staff as well. Everyone is happy doing well. [When] the chance comes, you have to take it.”

Since 28 December’s 2-1 success at London Stadium, David Moyes has been appointed manager of the Hammers, and Iheanacho believes they have already shown an improvement under the Scotsman.

“In the Premier League, when there is a change of manager, you will see a difference from the previous one,” said Iheanacho. It’s always going to be difficult with a team that changes their manager.

I think it’s going to be a tough one for us, but they are working, and they will put their preparations in place. We are looking forward to the task, we want to give them a good game.

“It’s always going to be a difficult one. No game is easy in the Premier League, so every game is hard. It’s going to be a tough one because they have become stronger, there’s something that has sparked them at the moment because of the way they are playing now.

“I think it’s going to be a tough one for us, but they are working, and they will put their preparations in place. We are looking forward to the task, we want to give them a good game.”
