Kelechi Iheanacho says Leicester City can be proud of their performance in the win against Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.
The Foxes won the contest 4-1 with Iheanacho among the goal scorers.
Leicester City opened up a two-point advantage at the Sky Bet Championship summit following the win.
“We started well and we scored, but they are a very good side with the ball,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.
“We had a tough time in the first half. We suffered a lot, but we were up in the first half 2-1.
“It was a strong game, but in the second half, we controlled more, and we nailed them in the counter attacks and got the goals that we wanted.

“They move a lot. We watched them a lot on the video, so we knew that. We tried to control the situation, but unfortunately, they got back in the game. We stayed calm and continued working hard.
“We kept going to earn the second goal. It was a really tough game for us, but I think we controlled it more in the second half. It was a great team performance.”
