The Nigerian continued his impressive form with his fourth goal of the season as the Foxes thumped the Villans at Villa Park.
Kelechi Iheanacho scored his fourth goal of the season to help Leicester City to a 4-1 victory against Aston Villa on Sunday. Before his strike, the Nigerian had assisted Jammie Vardy to put the Foxes ahead in the 20th minute.
Four minutes before the half-time break, he doubled their advantage after converting James Maddison’s cross at the near post with the aid of Ezri Konsa’s deflection. It was a significant goal for Iheanacho, with the 23-year-old now scoring in all four his appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side this term.

The former Citizen golden boy has faced some criticism this season; however, he now looks back to something like his best.
Although Jack Grealish pulled a goal back for the hosts on the stroke of half-time, it proved as a consolation as Jonny Evans sealed the triumph while Vardy completed his brace later on.
Fantastic performance from the team. Happy to get another goal and assist. 8 wins in a row that’s it 💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/EC3RiP2FoQ
