Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho hopes to score Manchester United when both sides clash in the 2018-19 Premier League’s season opener on Friday evening.
Almost two years ago, while at Manchester City, the Nigeria international notched the matchwinner against United in a 2-1 derby win at Old Trafford.
And the attacker who has been in terrific form, scoring four goals in three games in pre-season is looking to continue on the same wavelength against the Red Devils.
“I think everyone is looking forward to that game. Coming from Man City to Leicester and playing against Man United I think the City fans are going to support us in that game.” Iheanacho told The Mirror.
“I scored against United in the derby so it was a good experience and I am looking forward to hopefully doing it again.
“If I am chosen for the game against United I have to keep my goal-scoring record and work hard for the team.
“I would like to be part of it and am looking forward to it. I think it is going to be a big season for the whole team and we are in good shape now.”
