Kelechi Iheanacho is hoping to score for Leicester City against Manchester United should he get boss Claude Puel's faith to start.
The Nigerian striker scored a total of eight goals last season but all came after Puel took over from Craig Shakespear. Iheanacho hopes to get his scoring touch as early as at Old Trafford especially after having a remarkable pre-season tour.
Iheanacho cost £25million in August last year from Manchester City.He was always an impact substitute during his time at Etihad and averaged a goal in every 106 minutes.
"If I am chosen for the game against United I have to keep my goal-scoring record and work hard for the team. Leicester would like to be part of it and am looking forward to it.
"I think it is going to be a big season for the whole team and we are in good shape now The World Cup helped we didn't get to go through but it was a good experience and good fitness," said Iheanacho.
The Foxes visit Old Trafford on Friday in a very first match of the 2018-19 season.
