Seniorman, on the other hand, came up trumps in their last game, scoring on his first Premier League start of the season against Crystal Palace. Rodgers could turn to the Super Eagle against United after the strike came from the Nigerian’s only effort before his 71st-minute exit.
He was a significant figure in Leicester’s FA Cup victory, scoring and assisting in crucial victories over Brighton (where he scored the game’s lone goal) and Ole’s men (where he scored twice and set up another) as well as the 1-0 semi-final victory over Southampton.
Rodgers will be hoping that the forward continues his good form against the Giants this weekend, especially as the Foxes haven’t fared well against them in the past.
Man United have only lost one of their 15 Premier League away games against Leicester (winning nine and drawing five), with the only defeat coming in September 2014 under Louis van Gaal.
Iheanacho’s decisiveness was crucial in the 3-1 FA Cup defeat at the King Power Stadium, and fans will be hoping for a repeat performance on Saturday afternoon.
Leicester, who beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford at the close of last season, haven’t won successive league games against United since 1973, a record they’d like to break in game week eight on their own grounds.
They have a fighting chance with Iheanacho on their side!
