Boss Nigel Pearson insists Leonardo Ulloa is already justifying his £8million price tag after a red hot start to the season.
The striker bagged his second goal of the campaign when he equalised to claim a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.
It capped an impressive performance from the former Brighton man, who joined the Foxes in a club record deal over the summer.
He could have won it but fired wide with just Wojciech Szczesny to beat in the second half and gave Calum Chambers, a replacement for the injury Laurent Koscielny a torrid time.
And Pearson reckons the 28-year-old is ready for the top flight.
"He has proved he has the capability to perform at this level and that's key to it," said Pearson. "He is a very good player anyway. Maybe people's appreciation on what he brings to the side might be improving.

1/22 Kasper Schmeichel
Could have done better with the goal, but showed why he's an integral part of this Leicester team. 6
2/22 Ritchie De Laet
Impressed in attacking down the right early on, but had to show his defensive qualities as the game grew old. 7
3/22 Paul Konchesky
The experienced left-back was steady at the back. 6
4/22 Liam Moore
Mopped up well besides Morgan, and fared well in denying Arsenal's attacking talent. 7
5/22 Wes Morgan
Immense at the back for the Foxes, he put his body on the line and marshalled his defence brilliantly. 9
6/22 Jeff Schlupp
A pacey asset down Leicester's left flank, his delivery for Ulloa's equaliser was superb. 7
7/22 Andy King
Competed well in midfield against his compatriot Ramsey. 7
8/22 Dean Hammond
Protected his defence admirably. 6
9/22 Riyad Mahrez
The Algerian excited once again, but he still has selfish tendencies. 7
10/22 David Nugent
The wily goal-poacher showed another side to his game with some lovely link-up play. 7
11/22 Leonardo Ulloa
Took his goal brilliantly, and showed the attributes required to succeed at this level. 8
12/22 Wojciech Szczesny
No chance with the goal, but he was alert to many of Leicester's dangerous crosses. 7
13/22 Mathieu Debuchy
For once, the Frenchman was more use from a defensive perspective, making a number of important blocks. 7
14/22 Nacho Monreal:
Often given the runaround by Mahrez, he battled well to finish the match strongly. 6
15/22 Laurent Koscielny
Took an early knock on the head, and never recovered, leading to his early first half substitution. 5
16/22 Per Mertesacker
Solid in the air, but it was no surprise to see him struggle again the pace of the hosts' forward line. 6
17/22 Mathieu Flamini
Cut a frustrated figure in the second half as Leicester threatened on the counter. 6
18/22 Aaron Ramsey
A passing metronome in midfield, all that was missing was the usual goal threat. 8
19/22 Santi Cazorla
Combined clever passing and movement, but fluffed a couple of opportunities in front of goal. 7
20/22 Alexis Sanchez
Scored his first Premier League goal, but is still coming to terms with the pace of the English game. 7
21/22 Mesut Ozil
At times excellent, he still struggles to impose himself into this system. 6
22/22 Yaya Sanogo
Some nice movement off the ball at times, but his finishing lacked composure. 5
"It was a tough game physically and he has taken his goal well. He'll be disappointed not to finish the one in the second half, but it was a great bit of football and a super bit of skill."
Ulloa cancelled out Alexis Sanchez's 20th-minute opener - his first Barclays Premier League goal for Arsenal - as Leicester spooked the Gunners with Jamie Vardy also going close at the death.
The Foxes have drawn two and lost one of their opening three league games since promotion and Pearson believes they will improve.
"We continue to show signs we are capable of adapting quickly. That's really important and I know the players are capable," he said.
"Last year we dominated possession in the vast majority of games but this year we have had to adopt a different mentality.
"It shows an understanding from the players and a willingness to work as a team."
Pearson included former Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso on the bench after his move last week and also signed defender Danny Simpson from QPR on Friday.
The manager is still looking for new players before Monday's transfer deadline but refused to elaborate following accusations from Wigan last week they left James McArthur in limbo after agreeing a fee for the midfielder.
He added: "It's whether we can or can't, forgive me for not indulging in speculation. I won't be naming players as I never do, certainly in light of the story which broke on Thursday and the accusations which have been put our way. They need to look a little closer to home.
"We don't believe about talking too much about other people's players.
"If we do any more business you will know when it's completed. If we don't manage to do anything I'm very happy with the players we've already got."
