Super Eagles and Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has been included in the English Premier League Team of the Week.
The Team of the Week was compiled by football facts and stats website whoscored.com and published on their Twitter handle on Friday.
Iheanacho’s inclusion in the list was as a result of his impressive performance for Liecester in their 3-1 home win against 10-man Arsenal in Wednesday’s Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

Other players who made the list include his Leicester teammates Eldin Jakupovic and Riyad Mahrez, Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez, Cesc Fabrega of Chelsea and Leroy Sane of Manchester City.

His goal against Arsenal was his second after 20 Premier League games for Leicester this season.
