Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare confirmed Kelechi Iheanacho is fully fit ahead of Friday's season opener against Arsenal.
Iheanacho came off the substitute's bench during his first appearances for Leicester and set up Jamie Vardy for his second goal of against Borussia Monchengladbach last week. The Nigeria international striker was then forced off with a toe injury, but has now fully recovered, according to Shakespeare. "Kelechi trained fully after his little knock against Borussia Monchengladback," the City boss said in a fitness update. "He's over his toe injury and he's fully fit." While Shakespeare added he wasn't sure if Iheanacho can "last 90 minutes", the summer signing trained the last few days and could potentially make his first start for the Foxes at the Emirates. Should Iheanacho feature off the bench, it won't be longer before he replaces Shinji Okazaki in the starting XI. Aug 9 - 10:53 PM
