Super Eagles’ forward, Kelechi Iheanacho was in blistering form, scoring one and assisting another when Leicester bounced back from two straight Premier League defeats to record a 3-1 victory over struggling Huddersfield at the King Power Stadium, AOIFootball.com reports.
The visitors took an early lead through defender Mathias Jorgensen in the 5th minute but they could not hold onto that advantage after Iheanacho finished off a brilliant Leicester counter-attack to level the scores after 19 minutes.
After the break, the hosts took full control of proceedings, going ahead thanks to James Maddison’s 66th-minute free-kick before Jamie Vardy made sure of all three points 25 minutes from time after he was set up by Iheanacho.
Iheanacho was on for 77 minutes and had a game rating of 8.3, completing 76% of his passes and making 4 key passes.
The victory moves Claude Puel’s side up to eighth, while David Wagner’s men dropped to the foot of the table following their fourth defeat of the season.
