Daka Partnership – Leicester City Legend Elliot Talks Up Iheanacho

Leicester City legend Matt Elliott wouldn’t be surprised to see manager Brendan Rodgers start Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka in Thursday’s (today) UEFA Europa League clash.

The duo linked up effectively in Moscow last time out with Iheanacho setting up two of Daka’s four goals.

“It’ll certainly strike fear into the hearts of the Moscow defenders won’t it, a reminder of that duo together,” Elliot told the club’s website

“Neither of them played 90 minutes against Arsenal, Jamie Vardy did, so you would imagine that will be the case.

“I think we’ll be looking at minimal changes, although there will be a handful. There will be a sprinkling, I’m sure, but nothing too drastic. They don’t want to undo the good work that was done in Moscow here in Leicester by not following through on the back of that result.

“Against Moscow, Leicester should be able to get a bit of a grip in terms of possession in the game. From that, they can build and get those wing-backs forward more and be more effective. They were a little hesitant to do so against Arsenal.”
