Daka-Iheanacho partnership will strike fear into the heart of Spartak Moscow – Leicester City legend Elliott

 A fortnight ago, the African duo connected together to help the Foxes turnaround a two-goal deficit and grab maximum points in their last group match

Former Leicester City captain Matt Elliott has backed Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka to lead the Foxes’ attack for Thursday’s Europa League encounter against Spartak Moscow

Daka and Iheanacho formed an impressive partnership in their last European outing against the Russian club with the former scoring four goals, thanks to a brace of assists from his Nigerian teammate.

They host Spartak Moscow at King Power Stadium for another Group C fixture and Elliott is expecting the two African stars to start after they were less involved in Saturday’s Premier League loss to Arsenal.
