Iheanacho scores for Leicester City in Carabao Cup

Kelechi Iheanacho was in top form in Leicester City’s Carabao Cup win over Burton at the Pirelli Stadium on Wednesday.

Iheanacho who has not start a premier lead game this season was given a rare opportunity to lead the Foxes attack against the lowly rated opponents and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands by opening the scoring for his side.


 

Iheanacho opened the scoring for Brendan Rodgers’ team  after seven minutes, finishing from close range following a fine move.

 

Leicester cut through Burton, with Demarai Gray dribbling past two defenders before finding Tielemans out wide on the left with a lovely pass.

 

Tielemans hit a low, first-time cross into the box where Iheanacho beat goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara from six yards out.

 

Leicester got their second after 20 minutes after Dennis Praet set up his compatriot Tielemans, who fired a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

 

Burton rallied and reduced the deficit with Boyce’s 20-yard shot later in the second half of the game, before substitute Maddison settled the game with the third for Leicester City in the final minute after being set up by Gray.

 

Iheanacho who was replaced in the 66th minutes with Harvey Barnes has now scored twice in the competition this season.

 

The former Manchester City forward will be hoping to be part Leicester squad that will visit Crystal Palace on Sunday.
