Drinkwater praises Slimani impact at Leicester City.



Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater praised his new team-mate Islam Slimani after the striker scored two goals on his Foxes debut.

Claudio Ranieri's new centre-forward Slimani, who sealed a move from Sporting Lisbon to Leicester at the end of the transfer window for a reported club-record £30million, scored two goals against Burnley in his Premier League debut win at the King Power stadium on Saturday as the champions eased to a 3-0 victory.

"It was a great performance from him on his debut," the England international told reporters. "He deserved his goals.

"He fits in really well because he's a hard worker and also has ability. He has trained really well and he helps set up the way we play – he's a really good addition to the squad."
