Kelechi Iheanacho
Kelechi Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho hit a stunning strike for Leicester at Turf Moor last season.

The Foxes left Turf Moor with a 1-1 draw back in March as Matěj Vydra's fourth-minute opener was equalised in some style by Kelechi Iheanacho before the interval. The Nigerian hit international team-mate Wilfred Ndidi's forward ball first time on the volley to secure a point for Leicester.

Earlier on last season, on the other hand, Harvey Barnes, James Justin and Dennis Praet found the net, alongside an Erik Pieters own goal, in a 4-2 victory for City at King Power Stadium. Leicester are unbeaten in their last 10 home matches against the Clarets.
