Kelechi Iheanacho scores first Premier League goal of the season


Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, netted his first goal of this Premier League season, as they won 2-0 against Fulham on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles star was handed only his third league start of the season, with Jamie Vardy absent with injury.

The 24-year-old grabbed the opportunity to open his account in the English top-flight this term and helped the Foxes return to winning ways.

In the 17th minute, Iheanacho powered home James Maddison’s cross.

Iheanacho almost doubled his side’s lead in the 25th minute when he dribbled his way into Fulham’s defence, but failed to direct his shot on target.

Moments before the half-time break, James Justin doubled Leicester’s lead after a fine combination with Maddison.

Iheanacho played the entire 90 minutes, while his compatriot Wilfred Ndidi was not listed for the encounter due to injury problems.

He has now bagged four goals and provided four assists in 20 appearances across all competitions this season.
