Iheanacho urges Foxes to banish top-four demons

Iheanacho urges Foxes to banish top-four demons

In-form Kelechi Iheanacho admits Leicester are out to end the lingering pain of last season.

The striker scored his 14th goal in his last 14 games when he bagged the winner in Monday’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Three wins from the Foxes’ final five games would guarantee a top-four finish – even if West Ham win their remaining matches.

Third-placed Leicester dropped out of the Premier League’s top four on the final day of last season and Iheanacho admits it has been playing on the player’s minds.

“What happened last season was in our head this season,” he said. “We don’t want to make these mistakes again. That’s why we concentrated to get the win.

“So, these are the type of games we need to win and get the points so that it will help us at the last games.

“We’ve got five more now, so we need to concentrate on the next and see if we can get the three points.

“It’s another big game (against Southampton). We played them in the FA Cup, and they were really strong and aggressive. We’ve got another chance to play them on Friday.

“We need to come out strong and see if we can get the three points. They’re a good side but we need to make sure that we get the three points because we need to be strong.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City fans have taken to social media to beg the club to re-sign Kelechi Iheanacho but his £50million buy-back option expired last summer.
