Iheanacho grabs first Premier League hat-trick

Iheanacho vs Sheffield

Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, on Sunday recorded his first hat-trick in the Premier League.

Iheanacho struck three times as they beat Sheffield United 5-0.

The Super Eagles star put Leicester in front in the 39th minute thanks to Jamie Vardy’s assist.

In the 64th minute, Ayoze Perez doubled his side’s advantage.

Four minutes later, Iheanacho got his second of the evening from another Vardy pass.

He completed his treble in the 78th minute benefitting from a Wilfred Ndidi assist.

Collecting the ball 30 yards from goal, he was allowed too much time to take aim before drilling a low shot past a helpless Ramsdale.

Iheanacho has now been directly involved in 51 goals (37 goals, 14 assists) in 76 starts in all competitions, for Manchester City and Leicester City combined.
