It has been an incredible week for Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho after he scored his second league goal Leicester this season in as many games on Sunday.
The 23-year-old was the Foxes hero last week against Everton, setting up Jamie Vardy before scoring the winner. He missed the win over Watford during the week but was rewarded with his first league start in a year against Aston Villa on Sunday.
It was an opportunity the former Manchester City man took once again as he set up Jamie Vardy for the opener before heading in a James Maddison’s cross for the Foxes second.
