Striker Kelechi Iheanacho is hoping to get a better playing time at Leicester City when the new English Premier League kicks off in August.

The Nigeria international scored Leicester’s first goal in a 3-1 thrashing of Arsenal on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old joined from Manchester City for £25million last summer but has only made six top flight starts this season.

But Iheanacho is looking beyond this season, despite Leicester having a final EPL game against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

“That's what every player wants, to play. When you work hard, you get your chance, so I'll keep working hard and see what's next.

“It's always good to be involved in a good sport, with a great team. We started well and we got the first goal. We had the confidence and the momentum and we finished well.

“It was important to get the first goal to get us going and get our confidence back for the last couple of games. I think we've got our confidence back now, we're strong and we'll keep going.

“It was a great goal, good composure, a good assist from Fouss (Fousseni Diabate) and a good finish.”
