Kelechi Iheanacho puts up a Man of the Match performance with a goal and two assist to help Leicester complete a comeback against Aston Villa at the Villa Park.

In just his second start of the season, the out of favour Nigerian striker was involved in all three goals Leicester scored in the first half with two assists and a goal.

Ollie Watkins nine minutes opener was cancelled out by James Maddison three minutes later when Iheanacho squared the ball to the English man.

An own goal from Harry Souttar put Aston Villa back in front in the 32nd minute but the Foxes were level again courtesy of Iheanacho, who finished with a diving header.

In the 43rd minute, Iheanacho set up Teté in the box. The Brazilian went round Martinez before slotting in the back of the net.

In a triple change by manager Brendan Rodgers, Dewsbury-Hall, Maddison and Iheanacho were replaced by Nampalys Mendy, Dennis Praet and Jamie Vardy respectively midway through the second half.

Substitute Praet got Leicester City’s fourth goal when he rounded goalkeeper Emi Martinez in the 79th minute.

Before the trip to Aston Villa, the last time Iheanacho contributed to three goals in the Premier League was against his former club Manchester City in December 2021.
