Iheanacho Struggles In West Brom Draw

Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho made his second start for new club Leicester City in the English Premier League (EPL) for their home game with West Brom but struggled throughout the his stay on the pitch.

Iheanacho, who recently played a part in helping the Super Eagles of Nigeria qualify for next year’s World Cup in Russia, failed to impose himself on the game and even got a harsh yellow card in the second half.

He played for 74 minutes and left the field of play with his side trailing to a superb freekick by Belgian winger Nacer Chadli in the 63rd minute. His replacement, Islam Slimani of Algeria, however made the assist for his compatriot Riyad Mahrez to level proceedings for the home side some six minutes after his introduction.

Leicester City piled up more pressure after the equaliser but West Brom held on for a point which takes them into the top 10 with 10 points from their first eight games of the season while Leicester City stay in the relegation zone with 6 points.
