Iheanacho reacts to first Premier League goal in over a year - FCNaija

Antonio Conte has sounded a note of warning to Chelsea players that they must pay with "great attention" against Leicester City's attacking players like Kelechi Iheancho in the FA Cup quarter-final between the two clubs.

On Sunday, the King Power Stadium will play host to a game involving the fifth and eighth-placed sides in the Premier League table.

However, despite Chelsea sitting 16 points clear of the Foxes in the top flight, Conte has stressed that Leicester possesses a number of "very dangerous players".

At a press conference, the 48-year-old told reporters: "Two years ago they won title. They want to fight a lot, in the last game we played them we suffered a lot.

"They put us under a lot of pressure and ran a lot. They have very dangerous players and we must play great attention for that reason."

Indeed, Iheanacho can wreck the Blues as he has been having it good in the FA Cup where he is now eyeing his 10th goal.




Earlier this season, Chelsea registered a 2-1 win in the East Midlands before the two teams played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.
