Iheanacho nets hattrick as Leicester beat bottom placed Sheffield United

Leicester City on Sunday as the hammered bottom placed Sheffield United 5 goals to nil with Nigeria’s international, Kelechi Iheanacho scoring an hattrick in an energy sapped encounter.

Iheanacho who made his fourth straight start in the top flight receives accolades from the team’s manager, Brendan Rodgers after the game that took place at the King Power Stadium.

The Super Eagles forward also enjoyed the same starting line up with his fellow national team mate, international teammate Wilfred Ndidi, with both going the distance.

Iheanacho’s close range finish assisted by his strike partner Jamie Vardy was the difference at half-time with the Foxes totally dominating the game in the second half and scored four more goals.

Ayoze Perez doubled the advantage at minute 64 and Iheanacho scored with a first time finish to make it 3-0 on 69 minutes, Vardy the creator again.

The Nigeria international striker scored his third and Leicester City’s fourth with a brilliant effort from distance with twelve minutes left on the clock, and in doing so netted his first-ever hat-trick in the Premier League.

Iheanacho’s other hat-trick in English football was against Aston Villa in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup back in January 2016.

Leicester City wrapped up the scoring in the 80th minute as Jamie Vardy’s shot from a tight angle was deflected in by Ethan Ampadu.
