It was Iheanacho’s first goal for Leicester since scoring in a 5-2 loss at Brighton on 4th September, 2022, and third in all competitions this season.

He now has 16 goals in 22 FA Cup matches for Leicester City and Manchester City.

Iheanacho’s international teammate Wilfred Ndidi made a cameo appearance, coming on in the 81st minute for Nampalys Mendy.
