Kelechi Iheanacho compounded the woes of Arsenal on Wednesday when the Nigeria international lead an onslaught on the Gunners in a 3-1 premier league win at the King Power Stadium.

Iheanacho scored with 14 minutes into the tie and his cavorting on the night caught Arsenal’s defence napping not once but twice in the opening fifteen minutes.

 


On the second occasion the striker beat his marker and committed the young Arsenal defender – last man on the line – Kostantinos Mavropanos, leading to the Greek’s sending off.

 

The half was settled by that lone Iheanacho’s strike, but Arsenal returned from the break renewed in vigor and got their reward.

 

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored to level the score, but the numerical advantage will eventually play out in favor of the Foxes, who scored the second from the penalty spot.

 

A third goal was scored on 90 minutes through Algerian star, Riyad Mahrez, to condemn Arsene Wenger to a 13th league defeat.

 

In addition, the loss means Arsenal are yet to pick any point away from home in the EPL since the new year.

 

Iheanacho was substituted on minute 88 and his Super Eagles teammate, Alex Iwobi, played 84 minutes for the Gunners.
