The Leicester City wideman first grabbed an equaliser against Pep Guardiola’s men in the Carabao Cup Quarter-Final tie, before scoring in the 2-1 Premier League triumph against the current champions eight days later.

A favourite amongst the Blue Army for his relentless work ethic, Albrighton admits he wants to find the back of the net more regularly for the Foxes.

Albrighton said: “It’s always something that I aim to do, to bring more goals to my game. It’s something that I’ve lacked and then you get known as a winger that doesn’t score, which managers don’t really want these days.

Albrighton: We Need To Do Our Utmost

Marc Albrighton expects a difficult Premier League game when the Foxes take on Southampton on Saturday at King Power Stadium.

“They want their wingers and attacking players to chip in with goals and it’s something that I should be doing. To get a couple has been good for me personally, but for it to help the team get the results is even better.

“It comes from me personally. I’ve known that for a few years now that I haven’t scored enough goals in my game. I’ve done a lot of the other side of things, I’ve got a few assists, I’ve created a lot of chances and my work rate has been good.

“But one thing that I’ve always felt like I’ve needed to improve is goals and hopefully now I can push on from these two [against Man City] over Christmas and get a few more between now and the end of the season.”

It probably would be nice to score the tap-ins as well and the goals that nick points here and there and nick victories. That would be great.

Albrighton has bagged some huge goals for City. He scored the Club’s first UEFA Champions League goal, and during the same season, helped the Foxes seal passage into the quarter-finals of the competition with a historic finish against Sevilla in the last-16.

He has 13 Leicester strikes to his name, but now wants to increase his attacking contribution in the second half of the 2018/19 campaign.

“I like to think that they’re important,” said the City No.11 of his goals for the Club. “I’ve scored some big goals in my career at Aston Villa and at Leicester.

“It probably would be nice to score the tap-ins as well and the goals that nick points here and there and nick victories. That would be great.”
