    Kelechi Iheanacho pleased with Leicester City's return to winning ways

    Kelechi Iheanacho has expressed his delight after Leicester City returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in Saturday’s Premier League game. Last weekend, Claude Puel’s men suffered a 4-2 defeat against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium - their second consecutive loss. However, they fought from behind to nick the maximum points against Huddersfield, with the forward scoring and assisting with another in the tie. “Yes it is good to get back to winning ways. The whole team is happy not only me. We are pleased with the result today,” Iheanacho told LCFC TV. “I think the whole team did very brilliantly. I think we worked hard. “It was a sloppy goal in the first half but we kept our heads down and got the equaliser and the goals came. We are happy today. Jamie Vardy set up the former Manchester City striker for the equaliser and the Nigerian returned the favour. “Yes I think we have a good partnership, me and Jamie are fast on the break with good midfielders [James] Maddison and [Demarai] Gray. “I think it is a good thing for us to finish well today. I think we will keep going like that.” Leicester City face Wolverhampton Wanderers in a League Cup game on Tuesday and Iheanacho will hope to continue the impressive form.

    If Ashley can score a couple of goals it would be good! – Benitez

    Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has joked that it would be good if club owner Mike Ashley could score a couple of goals, following his side's goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday. The club's under-fire owner was present at the game, but Benitez demurred when asked if he had spoken to the controversial businessman. "Not really, I was talking with the media at the time," said the Spaniard. "If the owner wants to support the team, that's okay. If the owner can be on the pitch and score a couple of goals it would be better!” Newcastle fans have regularly protested against Ashley’s ownership over a perceived lack of investment in the club. The Sports Direct owner incurred the wrath of the Toon faithful after purchasing department store group House of Fraser just days after the end of a transfer window characterised by a lack of investment in players. The majority of the club’s major signings were loan deals or free transfers, with Federico Fernandez and Salomon Rondon joining on temporary deals, while Ki Sung-yeung joined on a Bosman transfer.  Benitez has previously spoken out regarding a lack of budget for signings. Furthermore, Aleksandar Mitrovic was sold to potential relegation rivals Fulham, and has scored five goals in six games so far. And Newcastle were lacking a tangible goal threat Saturday as the Magpies failed to score at Selhurst Park, with Rondon replaced at half-time by Joselu. "We are missing this kind of situation when we have a couple of chances, we have to do a little better. If you score, then the game changes totally,” Benitez said.  The free-spending nature of promoted clubs like Fulham and Wolves has further compounded the frustration of Newcastle fans. The afternoon was marred when Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka was struck by a bottle thrown from the Newcastle section of the crowd. Benitez played down the incident, saying the great majority of Newcastle fans behaved themselves.  "We had 3,000 fans and they were fantastic, maybe one made a mistake,” the Spaniard said.

    Gervinho fires Parma past Cagliari

    Gervinho was on the scoresheet as Parma defeated Cagliari Calcio 2-0 in Saturday’s Italian Serie A encounter. The former Arsenal forward joined the men in the Yellow and Blues stripes last month on a free transfer from Hebei China Fortune to end his three-year stay in China. The Cote d'Ivoire international scored his second goal of the season in the 47th minute after Roberto Inglese had earlier opened the scoring for Roberto D'Aversa’s men in the 20th minute. Gervinho was replaced by Massimo Gobbi with five minutes left to play as the Crusaders returned to winning ways after a five-game winless run. The victory saw Parma moved to the seventh spot in the league log with seven points from five games. They take on Napoli in their next league game at Stadio San Paolo on September 26.
