Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho produced yet another man-of-the-match performance as he scored one and set up another for Leicester City to inspire a comeback 2-1 win against Crystal Palace and boost their Champions League qualification, AOIFootball.com reports.

 

Having scored 4 goals in his last 3 outings in all competitions, the in-form attacker led the line for the Foxes with Wilfred Ndidi also present at the heart of the midfield and Eagle’s hopeful Eberechi Eze also starting for the visitors.

 

Leicester were however shocked after just 12 minutes when Eze set up Wilfried Zaha to make it 1-0 with the Ivorian netting his fourth goal in four games.

 

Iheanacho then sparked a spirited second-half fightback, setting up Timothy Castagne for the equalizer within five minutes of the restart, before emphatically rifling in his 14th goal in 14 games in all competitions to complete the turnaround 10 minutes from time.

 

The victory sees Leicester consolidate third spot, seven points clear of fifth-placed West Ham, while Palace remain 13th, 11 points clear of the relegation zone but not yet mathematically safe.

 

Iheanacho, who scooped his second straight man of the match award, had a game rating of 8.7 whilst Wilfred Ndidi also impressed at the heart of the midfield with a game rating of 7.3.
