Cengiz Under suffers Leicester injury as Iheanacho steps up for Brendan Rodgers

Cengiz Under suffers Leicester injury as Iheanacho steps up for Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers praises Iheanacho

Leicester City came from a goal behind to win at Brighton thanks to strikes from Kelechi Iheanacho and Daniel Amartey. The former scored for the second game in a row after equalising away at Sheffield United in midweek, and Brendan Rodgers has praised the Nigerian forward for stepping up:

“He has a bit of everything,” Rodgers said. “He’s come up trumps a few times recently, if you remember at Fulham he scored that important header.”

“In the first half it got away from him too much, he had too many touches and was losing possession, but when he intensified his game, he played quicker and his finish was superb. That’s the level of confidence he’s at.”

“He worked well for the team and his contribution was valuable.”

Without a number of key players, and with Jamie Vardy’s form having dipped of late, Brendan Rodgers will need the Nigerian international to continue playing at a high level in order to secure a much coveted Champions League place.

Cengiz Under injured

As mentioned, Leicester City are currently dealing with a spate of injury issues, with the likes of Harvey Barnes, James Maddison, Wes Morgan, James Justin and Dennis Praet sidelined.

And things have now gotten worse, with the addition of Roma loanee Cengiz Under:

Whilst Under has not been able to establish himself as a regular starter at the King Power stadium, Rodgers will be hoping not to lose any further personnel, to avoid a poor ‘run in’ at the end of another strong campaign.
