Iheanacho sets new record against Chelsea

Even though the result did not go the way of his team on Tuesday night, Kelechi Iheanacho set a new record in the Premier League tie at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.

As revealed by Opta, Iheanacho with his goal in Leicester City’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea became the first player in Premier League history to score a goal on all seven days of the week within a single season in the competition

The 24-year-old now boasts 12 goals in 24 outings so far in the 2020-21 campaign. Overall, he is Leicester’s highest goalscorer in all competitions this term with 19 goals – four more than veteran Jamie Vardy.

Still hurting over their defeat in the FA Cup, Chelsea were fired up for revenge against the Foxes but the first half of Tuesday’s game ended in a barren draw

However, two minutes into the second half, Antonio Rudiger put the Blues in front. Ben Chilwell’s corner nicked off a Leicester defender into the 28-year-old who bundled the ball into the net.

In the 66th minute, Jorginho doubled the hosts’ advantage from the penalty mark after Wesley Fofana hacked at Werner inside the box.

Iheanacho came on in the 60th minute and he scored in the 76th minute.

Going into the last day of action, Chelsea’s victory lifted them to third in the EPL, just one point above Leicester City who occupy the fourth spot.
