Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, says a win against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday will give the team the morale needed to fine-tune their season after enduring a poor start to the 2022/23 English premier league campaign.
The Foxes are currently bottom of the Premier League after six matches and are only the second club in the competition yet to record a win after Everton.
Brendan Rodgers’ ward will visit high-flying Spurs in London as they seek their first win of the season and Iheanacho believes that getting the maximum points from that encounter will be vital to their season.
“It would be massive – so, so massive for the Club and for everyone involved,” Iheanacho told the club website. “A win would give us the momentum to go forward this season. We need to defend as a team, attack as a team and just work hard as a team.
“We have been preparing very, very hard for this and hopefully it turns around this weekend. Training has been going quite well. The message has always been that we stick together whether we lose or win but right now we need to show character, hunger and desire.
“As players and as a team we know we can get the results we need, we showed that last season. So far this season, it’s just turned out the other way. We have great quality in this team, so we just need to believe in ourselves and get the points to get us back up there this season.”
Iheanacho has scored once while providing one assist in five league games this season.
