When I look back at the month of December for Leicester City, one man stands above all others for me. That man is the excellent Kelechi Iheanacho.
It began on the first of the month, when things were not looking good for Leicester against Everton. The Toffees had taken a lead in the 23rd minute through Richarlison. Leicester weren’t creating a great deal and didn’t look at their best. At least this was the case until Brendan Rodgers tried to change things up, bringing in a player who hadn’t played in the Premier League so far this season.
It’s the 62nd minute: the substitute’s board is held up. No.17 in red, no.14 in green. The game changer has arrived.
Personally, being at the game, there was a warm reception to the return of Iheanacho. This was a new season, a new start.
