EPL: Iheanacho scores twice against West Ham

Kelechi Iheanacho has now scored eight goals in the EPL this season after scoring twice in Sunday’s clash against West Ham.

Unfortunately, the two goals scored by Iheanacho was still not enough as Leicester City lost 3-2 to West Ham.

West Ham started Sunday’s tie brightly with two first-half goals from the rejuvenated Jesse Lingard who was on target in the 29th and 44th minute.

The Hammers were on a cruise and even had a fourth goal disallowed before Iheancho began what seemed like a possible comeback.

The EPL March player of the Month Award winner reduced the deficit to 3-1 in the  70th minute after firing in a shot off an assist from Ricardo Pereira.

Iheanacho was on target again in stoppage time to take his tally in the EPL to eight goals but it was too little too late to earn Leicester City a share of the spoils.

Despite the loss, Leicester City remains in the third position with 56 points from 31 games while the Hammers have to fourth spot just one point adrift of the Foxes
