Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has explained his decision to start Kelechi Iheanacho in Sunday’s 5-2 defeat at Brighton.
Iheanacho was handed a starting role by Rodgers for the first time this season.
The Nigeria international repaid his manager’s faith by putting his side ahead in the first minute.
The home team rallied back to win the game, with Iheanacho leaving the field for Jamie Vardy in the 72nd minute.
It was Iheanacho’s fourth league appearance of the season for the former Premier League champions.
