Iheanacho frustrated with Spartak draw

KELECHI IHEANACHO has been left frustrated with Leicester City 1-1 draw in Thursday’s Europa League game against Spartak Moscow.

The Premier League side had to come from behind to snatch a point in front of over 30,000 fans at the King Power Stadium.

The Nigeria international had a couple of chances saved by goalkeeper Alexander Selikhov.

The Foxes are yet to keep a clean sheet in the four matches played so far in the Europa League this season and have conceded seven goals.

Iheanacho acknowledged Leicester’s forward players were equally culpable as their defensive colleagues for the draw with Spartak and they must improve in front of goal to qualify for the knockout phase.

“It was a frustrating game, we conceded a sloppy goal but got back into the game,” added the Foxes striker.

“We were on them for the last 10 minutes, tried every means to score but we have to focus on the next two games now. Hopefully, we will win and go through.

“The first half we kept the ball well and moved it quickly, in the second half we came out well but it was one of those games. We have to do a bit more.

“We missed a couple, we need to do more on the offensive side. It didn’t come tonight.

“Everyone is down at the moment, we need to now focus on the next games. The Premier League first then look to progress in the Europa League.”
