Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho eager to start at Man Utd

Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho is pushing to start tonight at Manchester United.

Leicester's former Manchester City striker Iheanacho also reckons everyone at his old club will cheer him on in Friday night's showpiece season opener at Old Trafford.

He told the Mirror: “I think everyone is looking forward to that game. Coming from Man City to Leicester and playing against Man United I think the City fans are going to support us in that game.

“I scored against United in the derby so it was a good experience and I am looking forward to hopefully doing it again."

Iheanacho added: “Last season it was difficult coming back from injury and trying to get the same fitness level. Sometimes things don't go the way you want. But it is looking good this season.

“I am injury-free and will keep working hard and am looking forward to the games."
