Kelechi Iheanacho scored a stunning goal Monday night as Leicester City came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in their Premier League clash at the King Power stadium.
With the victory, the Foxes smartly cashed on the slip by West Ham and Liverpool to further cement themselves in next season’s Champions League with a win over the Eagles.
Brendan Rodgers’ men now have a seven-point cushion separating them from fifth place, and it would be rather surprising to see them mess things up having done this much.
Interestingly, it was Palace that struck first as they shot into the lead on 12 minutes with a fine goal, scored by Wilfried Zaha who did well to beat Kasper Schmeichel.
Though Palace held on to the lead till the end of the first half, Leicester came out quickly for the second half and levelled the match five minutes after the restart.
Timothy Castagne provided an emphatic finish after good work by Tielemans and Iheanacho.
Iheanacho in the 80th minute sealed victory with a stunning goal as Palace were denied a share of the spoils.
The Nigerian forward who played for the entire 90 minutes had a man-of-the-match performance with a brilliant assist, a brilliant goal and a very fine performance all around.
Iheanacho has scored 14 goals in his last 14 appearances for Leicester in all competition
