He came off the bench in the 66th minute and set up Jamie Vardy for the winner but was then replaced by Leonardo Ulloa after an awkward challenge.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare said: “I am still looking to find out. I don’t know whether it is ankle or Achilles.

“He was up on his feet, and the first thing is for me is the physios are not showing a great concern, which is a good sign.

“Vards wanted back on that scoresheet and it was very unselfish of Kelechi to lay it on a plate for him as well because someone making his debut, coming on, could have easily been a bit more selfish there.

“He’s fine in there and getting a bit of a rib from the players in terms of him coming off.

“But you can see the impact he’s had. We’re really just making sure that was more of a precaution.

“We’ve had a look at him in training. He hasn’t trained very often so far – he hasn’t been able to because of circumstances.

“But the more minutes we can get him on the pitch the more that he’ll be liable to last 90 minutes.”

Lets hope you kept the receipt, Craigo.
