Two top Nigerian players Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi are expected to be in action on Friday at Old Trafford as the English Premier League resumes.

Leicester City will be trading tackles against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United and fireworks are expected at the Theatre of Dreams.

Though the Foxes were beaten 2-0 the last time they were at the Old Trafford, they are hoping to earn all three points.

Iheanacho has revealed that he is capable of scoring against the Red Devils just as he did during the 2016-2017 season in Man City's 2-1 win.

''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 was quoted as saying by Mirror UK.

''I scored against United in the derby so it was a good experience and I am looking forward to hopefully doing it again.''

 With Jamie Vardy missing most part of the pre-season preparations, Iheanacho will fancy his chances of being named in the starting line-up on the back of his excellent form in pre-season that saw him score four times in three games.

"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,'' the Foxes number eight added.

Iheanacho has been directly involved in 41 goals (29 goals, 12 assists) in 92 matches since moving to England in 2015.
