Iheanacho Scores 14th Goal In 14 Games To Take Leicester Closer To UCL by ogbiwa: 6:15am On Apr 27
Leicester city moved closer to champions league qualification as they came from behind to beat Crystal Palace, after Kelechi Iheanacho set up the equalizer and then scored a superb winner at the king power stadium.

Wilfried Zaha put the visitors ahead after only 12 minutes, with a first-time finish following a fine through ball from Eberechi Eze.

But Timothy Castagne equalised for the Foxes within five minutes of the second half by firing the ball into the roof of the net after being set up by Kelechi Iheanacho.

Palace nearly retook the lead but a superb sliding challenge from Jonny Evans denied Christian Benteke what would have been a tap-in into an unguarded goal.

That missed chance proved crucial as Iheanacho scored his 12th goal in nine games, when he cut inside on to his left foot and blasted the ball past goalkeeper Vicente Guaita for a late winner.

The result leaves the Foxes third in the Premier League, but takes them seven points clear of fifth-placed West Ham with five matches to go.

"It's a massive three points for us and we were nervous a bit," said Iheanacho.

"We changed it around and got control of the game and got them running. But there's still a lot of work to do, we can't talk about the Champions League until the last game."

Leicester, who have also reached the FA Cup final for the first time since 1969, have only played in the European Cup or Champions League once, reaching the quarter-finals in 2016-17 after winning the Premier League the previous season.

Their run-in includes games against Manchester United in second, Chelsea in fourth and Tottenham in seventh.

Some heartwarming news on Nairaland after all the doom and gloom that have been besieging us here past few days. Football is really a savior. Anyways back to topic, would Leicester be higher up the table than they are now if Rodgers had brought Iheanacho into the starting 11 from the beginning of the season?

Just my thoughts but would Leicester be higher up the table than they are now if Rodgers had brought Iheanacho into the starting 11 from the beginning of the season?

Don't really think so...Vardy was equally on fire earlier in the season. Think the problem is they carelessly lost a couple of games they shouldn't have.....but hey, its football can't win all the time..

Nice one. I am really happy for this guy. Remember those his early beginnings in the streets of Owerri. Destiny may be delayed but can definitely not be denied. I pray and hope he maintains that cos it seems he has finally matured to a deadly strike. Every player has their time of maturation.

The guy is in top form. I didn’t believe his form until yesterday when I saw the chances he was creating and the goal he scored. Before now, I thought Vardy’s was doing the dirty job for him.
