The Nigeria global, who has struggled in his spell with Leicester thus far, made an instant impression, crossing for Jamie Vardy to tap home the equaliser.

There's no doubt that over these next few weeks, like every team, we have to consider how we want to play in oder to bring energy and intensity in the games.
