Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho says he is unfazed by competition by competition at Leicester City.

The 21-year-old is part of the English Premier League (EPL) side's striking department which includes Jamie Vardy, Leonardo Ulloa, Islam Slimani and Shinji Okazaki.

Iheanacho scored his first goal for Leicester as they beat English Championship outfit Leeds United 3-1 in a Carabao Cup Last 16 match at the King Power Stadium last week Tuesday.

However, the former Manchester City forward was introduced in the 89th minute as the Foxes defeated Everton 2-0 in an EPL match at home on Sunday.

“I’m not going to call it a competition because we are all one,” Iheanacho told Leicester Mercury.

“We do well in training and we are together.

“Everybody that plays gives 100 per cent, so you can be on the bench or you can play," Iheanacho continued.

"We are one and we don’t have any grudges in mind.

"We hope to get more success in the future.”

He is yet to score in the EPL having made seven EPL appearances for the Foxes.
