The former Manchester City star proved his worth in the squad by sending a strong signal to Brendan Rodgers who just handed him his first start of the season across all competitions, despite his top notch delivery for the Foxes in the last season.
Kelechi Ịheanachọ in the game was able to provide an assist which was instrumental in rescuing a point in the 2-2 draw and as such helped them not to kick-start their campaign with a defeat.
Kelechi Ịheanachọ has been left out of the club's starting XI this season until yesterday despite his terrific run of form at the end of the last campaign that saw him finished as top scorer since his first appearance.
In the new campaign, he has made an impact despite not been given enough playing time in first five games off the bench as he scored a penalty he earned in the FA Community Shield, helped the team by setting up the winner against Norwich City and at the same time made his side more threatening in their search for an equaliser against his former club, Manchester City in the last weekend.
Kelechi Ịheanachọ who was brought into his side first eleven in the last campaign after Harvey Barnes' injury where he was able to deliver, played another significant roles for the FA Cup Champions in the opener of their European campaign.
This is coming with a strong message to the former Liverpool manager who has reverted to his old formation this season consequent to the arrival of Harvey Barnes, coupled with the inclusion of James Maddison and Jamie Vardy in the squad which resulted to him not giving the Nigerian star a starting role.
However, he was able to announce his relevance yet in the the team with his top notch delivery yesterday which could as well cement a spot for him when they play away from home this weekend to Brighton and Hove Albion in the EPL.
Leicester City with the hope to keep their pursuit going in the UEFA Europa league will now be optimistic to been back to winning ways in their next fixture.
