Iheanacho helps Leicester City To Away Win Against QPR


Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench to help Leicester City secure yet another win in the EFL Championship.

Under the management of Italian, Enzo Maresca Leicester have set a new record for the best ever start by a team in the second division of English football.

The Foxes began their game at Loftus Road with a front three consisting of Jamie Vardy, Stephy Mavididi, and Abdul Fatawu.

Kelechi Iheanacho started on the bench, while Wilfred Ndidi was unable to play due to a muscle injury.

Mavididi, who scored Leicester’s last goal against Swansea a week ago, opened the scoring for his team against QPR thirty minutes into the game.

The 25-year-old winger received a pass from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall on the edge of the box and skillfully placed his shot into the bottom corner, giving Leicester a one-goal lead.

However, QPR managed to level the scores with just five minutes remaining in the first half. Andre Dozell capitalized on a blocked header from Lyndon Dykes and tapped the ball home.

Leicester continued to dominate possession in the second half, allowing the home side to have just 21% of the ball.

Manager Maresca made a tactical substitution, replacing Cesare Casadei with Kelechi Iheanacho.

And it didn’t take long for Iheanacho to make an impact. Just a minute after coming on, Mavididi turned provider, passing the ball to Harry Winks, who unleashed a powerful shot from outside the box into the top right corner, securing three points for the league leaders.

With this victory, Leicester City is now just one point away from reaching the 40-point mark, having accumulated an impressive 39 points in fourteen games so far this season.
