Kelechi Iheanacho Breaks Iwobi's Everton Hearts

Kelechi Iheanacho scored a 94th minute winner as Leicester defeated Everton 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, Nigfooty.com reports.

Iheanacho got on the end of a delightful Pereira throughball and dispatches it with venom at the far corner.

After a lengthy VAR review in which the initial decision on the pitch was offside, the review overturns it and deems that Mina’s knee kept the striker onside as the crowd went wild inside the king Power.

Today's match was Iheanacho's first appearance in the Premier League so far this season.

Everton got into the lead through Richarlison in the first half but things became so tough for Leicester City and Brendan Rodgers turn to Kelechi Iheanacho at the expense of Ayoze Perez and the Nigerian didn't disappoint when he setup hot striker Jamie Vardy just after the hour mark for the equalizer.

However, Kelechi Iheanacho who has been sharp all game long had the final say with a moment of magic in what was the last action of the match finishing with confidence to put Leicester City eight points off leaders Liverpool and back to second spot.
