West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce claimed his men must stop Leicester’s duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy to boost their survival hopes in the English Premier League.

Allardyce’s men will face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night.


Iheanacho scored his 15th goal of the season as Southampton were beaten 1-0 in Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final clash, with the in-form Nigeria striker set up by the seemingly-ageless Vardy.

“We’ve got to look after maybe the best pairing in the Premier League at the moment,” Allardyce was quoted by the Independent.

“Iheanacho and Vardy are probably two of the most dangerous forwards in the Premier League.

“Part of our task is to try and keep them from scoring a goal and making sure we give ourselves a chance of winning the game.

“That will be a key area for our defence to try and look after those two.

“Getting to the FA Cup final will have lifted Leicester’s spirits because that is a major achievement.

“On the back of that will make life difficult for us, and they’ve still got to get points to maintain their Champions League position.”
