But the former Liverpool midfielder is content playing second fiddle to his Swiss teammate.
He said: "When you get a booking early on it's not ideal but thankfully I managed to get through the game without it weighing on me – and without picking up that second one. It was a competitive game. Leicester physically competed everywhere so we had to do what's required.
"My job is to get Shaqiri on the ball. He's the man that's going to create and score goals. You know if you can get him the ball he'll do the rest. It was a great finish from him and we've seen it's happening with him more and more consistently. It's brilliant for us and we're going to need him to carry it on until the end of the season."
