With Jamie Vardy absent from the matchday squad, Leicester City’s manager, Brendan Rodgers handed Kelechi Iheanacho a starting shirt and the Owerri born striker didn’t disappoint.
Kelechi Iheanacho scored the first goal of the might in the 17th minute as he headed home a well-measured cross by James Maddison into the box.
The former Manchester City forward didn’t relent as he also got involved in James Justin’s goal just before time as the Foxes secured all three points before going on break.
