Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed Kelechi Iheanacho after FA Cup win over Brentford.

On Saturday the Foxes picked up a 1-0 victory in the 4th round of FA Cup against Brentford, with Iheanacho scoring the only goal of the clash securing his side’s win.

Leicester’s top goalscorer Jamie Vardy was missing the game due to a glute injury sustained in Wednesday’s win over West Ham, however Iheanacho filled the void impressively and scored his seventh goal of the season.

Speaking about the Nigerian forward after the win, Rodgers said:

“For Kels, he is getting better and better. He is so efficient now in his game. He is working so hard. He creates goals, he scores goals and I am delighted for him.”

Leicester boss also talked about injured Jamie Vardy:

“He was really sore after the (West Ham) game, but that has eased up after the last day or so. We will find out (if he can play on Tuesday) tomorrow when we are in.”

The Foxes will return to action on Tuesday, as they are set to face Aston Villa in the frames of the EFL Cup.
