Iheanacho on inflicting more away woe on Iwobi's Arsenal

EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 10/05/2018

Super Eagles and Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanachohas reflected on the Foxes' win over Alex Iwobi's Arsenal on Tuesday. Iheanacho produced a livewire performance with a goal, the burst that saw Mavropanos sent off and more sprints than any other player.

Iheanacho opened the scoring as Leicester earned a first Premier League win over Arsenal since 1994. The Nigria internatinal rifled the opener past Petr Cech after poor defending before Arsenal levelled through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Jamie Vardy's penalty and Riyad Mahrez's late breakaway goal sealed a 3-1 victory for the hosts.

Leicester 3-1 Arsenal: Iheanacho deepens Iwobi's away woe

The former Man City forward in a post-match interview with the club's official TV channel said: "Its always good to be involved in a good sport, a great team. We started well and we got the first goal.

"We got the confidence and the momentum and we finished well. It was important to get the first goal to get us going and to get our confidence back for the last couple of games.

"I think we've got our confidence back now, we're strong now, we'll keep going."

Arsenal remain the only side without an away point in English league football in 2018, while victory for the Foxes means they could still overhaul Everton for eighth place with victory over Tottenham on the final day.

Iheanacho and his troops are back in league action again on Sunday when they travel to Wembley to keep a date with Tottenham.
