English Premier League giants bank on Super Eagles star to inspire them to FA Cup Semi-final victory

Brendan Rodgers led English Premier League giants Leicester City are banking on Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Kelechi Iheanacho, ahead of their must win fixture against Ralph Hasenhuettl led Southampton football club, in the Semi-final of the Emirates FA cup today at Wembley Stadium today.

The former English Premier League champions have been superb since the beginning of the season, and their impressive run of form has guided them to the third spot in the league table, and also they are on the verge of booking their spot in the Final of this season's Emirates FA cup.

The Foxes have returned back to be one of the best teams in the English Premier League since Brendan Rodgers took over few years back, and they are looking forward to winning a major league trophy for the first time since 2016.

Super Eagles star Kelechi Iheanacho has been Leicester City's revelation of the year, as the former Manchester City star has been firing from all cylinders for the club since the beginning of the year.

England star Jamie Vardy has only netted few goals in the English Premier League this year, and Kelechi Iheanacho has stepped up for the club, and he's ready to continue his excellent performance today.

The Nigerian international helped the Foxes to knockout Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United in the quarter final last month, after he netted brace, and provided one assist in his team's 3-1 victory.

As the Foxes are set to play Ralph Hasenhuettl led Southampton football club this evening, Leicester City have now started banking on the Nigerian international who has shown his readiness to guide the team to victory.

Leicester City posted Kelechi Iheanacho pictures as a Spider-Man, on their verified Twitter handle, with the caption of Seniorman, and they expect him to continue his impressive run of form for the club.

The winner between Brendan Rodgers led Leicester City football club and Ralph Hasenhuettl's Southampton FC will now play Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea football club, who defeated Pep Guardiola's Manchester City 1-0 on Saturday evening, at the Wembley Stadium.
