Iheanacho pleased with draw at Turf Moor.

Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho says he is pleased with draw against Burnley at Turf Moor in the midweek premier league game.

The Nigerian scored an equalizer to secure a point for the foxes as they remain third in the league table.

“It wasn’t a bad game,” Iheanacho told club media at full-time. “I think it was a tough game for us and Burnley, they gave us a bit of heat, but we’ll take a point.

“It was a slow start from us, but after that goal, we got the momentum, got the rhythm, got them running and got the equaliser. We are together as a group and as a team.”

The former Manchester City player scored after he received a pass from compatriot Wilfred Ndidi 10 minutes before the interval.

“We’re talking about the little run from Jamie [Vardy] and the pass from Wilf [Ndidi] – that was the goal for me,” explained Iheanacho. “So, it was a great goal.

“Playing with Jamie, I like playing with him. He’s a runner, if you have a great runner in the team, we know we have to find him, and give him good front passes for him to finish up. I like partnering with Jamie. It’s good.”
