Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho Sets New Goals Landmark After Scoring Against West Brom


The Nigerian striker can seem to stop scoring in England and he has yet again out-foxed the Baggies defence to put himself on the scorer’s chart once more

Kelechi Iheanacho has achieved a new personal goalscoring record in a single Premier League season, after hitting target in the first half of Leicester City’s clash against West Bromwich Albion.

Brendan Rodgers’ men are currently leading the Baggies three-nil following goals from Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans, and Iheanacho.

Vardy and Evans set the ball rolling for the home side within the opening 26 minutes before Iheanacho, ten minutes before the break, pounced on a Jamie Vardy layoff to send a cute finish past Sam Johnstone in the visitors’ goal.

Iheanacho’s latest strike is his ninth Premier League goal this season, which is one more than his previous best of eight that he managed for Manchester City in the 2015/2016 campaign.

The 24-year-old has now found the back of the net 16 times in all competitions for the Foxes, the highest he has ever scored in a single campaign.
