Craig Shakespeare not expecting a Leicester exodus

Craig Shakespeare not expecting a Leicester exodus

Initial signs were promising as Iheanacho set up Vardy for the winning goal in the final pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach last Friday.

Jamie Vardy made it 2-1 with an easy tap in the 29th minute but Danny Welbeck restored parity for the Gunners just before half time.

Speaking in a room decorated with the headlines and back pages that greeted Leicester's extraordinary triumph 15 months ago, Shakespeare talked about a rollercoaster ride as he reflected on the highs and lows of the past few years and, at the same time, tried to gaze into the future. Are they going to be more adventurous?

'You would probably think he might take that chance himself, but to spot Jamie, to play that in with the weight of pass he did for Jamie to finish it, it shows his awareness and his unselfishness'.

'He's young, he's a good goalscorer, you see that he can link play up, his all-around game, ' said Shakespeare. "They have some good players too". We have got strength in depth in forward positions'.

"He's a very, very good player". He's sharp and quick and he's definitely got an eye for goal, " Morgan is quoted to say by Daily Mail.

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed Kelechi Iheanacho will start from the bench at Arsenal in tonight's Premier League opener because he is not fully fit. "Who knows?" said the 53-year-old with a chuckle when asked what was in store for his team this season after a great escape, Premier League title and qualification for the last eight of the Champions League during the past three seasons.

"I've been impressed with Harry Maguire since he came in".
