Kelechi Iheanacho has been a handed his first English Premier league start of the season against Aston Villa.

Iheanacho was installed into the Foxes starting line ahead of Spaniard Ayoze Perez, who has partnered Jamie Vardy all season.

 

The Nigerian scored his first premier league goal in over 12 months against Alex Iwobi’s Everton last Sunday after replacing for Perez.

 

But, he returned to the bench again in midweek nervy win over struggling Watford at the King power stadium.

 

Iheanacho will now aim  to impress Brenda Rodgers once more at Villa Park with a sterling performance in order to keep his place in the team.
