Super Eagles attacker Iheanacho scores the winner in Leicester’s triumph over Everton

Leicester City extended their winning run in the Premier League to six games at the weekend, with Kelechi Iheanacho opening his goal-scoring account in the 2019/2020 season. The Nigeria international scored a late winner in the King Power Stadium clash to help the Foxes retain the second position in the standings. Iheanacho and Co. are brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek fixture against Watford, and they are seen as hot favourites to pick up all three points from the match.

Will Kelechi Iheanacho extend his goalscoring run against Watford?

Amazing Premier League debut for Nigeria international 

Kelechi Iheanacho has been in Jamie Vardy’s shadow in the 2019/2020 season as the experienced English attacker has been scoring goals for fun in the Premier League. The Super Eagles striker made his Leicester City debut in the new EPL season at the weekend, coming as a substitute for Ayoze Perez in the 62nd minute of the match.

After a mere six minutes on the pitch, Iheanacho provided an assist for Jamie Vardy, who slotted the ball into an empty net. To make things even better for the Super Eagles star, he scored the winner in the dying minutes of the match to help Leicester City extend their winning run in the Premier League to six games. Ricardo Pereira slipped the ball through to Kelechi Iheanacho, who unleashed a beautiful shot into the bottom left corner. Even though the goal was reviewed with VAR, the Foxes eventually had a reason for celebration as Iheanacho was onside.

Can anyone stop high-flying Foxes?

Leicester City have been producing excellent showings under Brendan Rodgers, who is doing a great job with the Foxes. The former Liverpool manager is on a quest to bring glory days back to King Power Stadium, but repeating the success from the 2015/2016 season when the team clinched their first Premier League trophy is easier said than done.

Anyhow, the Foxes seem to be on top of their game ahead of Wednesday’s clash against Watford, and we are positive that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against the Hornets. Spanish tactician Quique Sanchez Flores is no longer in charge of Watford as he was sacked on Sunday following a 2-1 loss at Southampton. Seeing that the relegation strugglers head into the midweek game with the lack of confidence, it is no wonder Leicester City are just 1/3 (1.3) at bet365 to extend their winning run in the English elite division. Given the Foxes’ impressive home record, home/home betting option (1/1) should be considered.

Hornets struggle at King Power Stadium

When Leicester City and Watford face each other in a competitive match, home win is guaranteed. In each of their last six meetings in the national championship, the two teams won their respective home fixtures, and you should bear in mind that the Hornets are eyeing their first triumph at King Power Stadium since April 2013 when the two teams met in the Championship.

Leicester City emerged triumphant in each of their previous four encounters at King Power Stadium, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. When the two sides square off against each other in Leicester last term, the Foxes defeated the Hornets 2-0, with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison scoring for the hosts. The clash was marked by Etienne Capoue’s suspension as well as the Watford midfielder was shown a red card for a challenge on Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho. Speaking of the Super Eagles attacker, who scored the winner against Everton, he is likely to replace Ayoze Perez in the starting XI.

Arsenal vs Brighton both teams to score at 3/5

Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw with Norwich City on Freddy Ljungberg’s debut as the Gunners manager, with the team once again experiencing all sorts of problems at the back. The capital club look sharp in front of goal, but given their shaky defence, we are positive that Brighton are going to find the net in the Emirates Stadium clash. The Seagulls did well to make life difficult for Liverpool at Anfield at the weekend, and our sports betting expert opinion is that they are certainly capable of spoiling Arsenal’s party at Emirates Stadium.

Sheffield United to win @5/6

Sheffield United have been playing above expectations in the 2019/2020 Premier League season. The newcomers, who sit in the 7th position in the standings, aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to go for a win in a midweek fixture against Newcastle United. The Magpies did well to hold reigning champions Man City to a 2-2 draw at their St. James’ Park, but it is well known that they struggle on the travels. In their last away game in the EPL, Newcastle United suffered a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa.
