EPL: Iheanacho Denied By VAR As Norwich City Pip Leicester 1-0 At Carrow Road

A stunning Jamal Lewis goal saw Norwich beat Leicester 1-0 in the Premier League on Friday Night Football and boost their survival hopes.

Both sides went into the game having not won in the league since the middle of January and Leicester thought they taken the lead when Kelechi Iheanacho powered home just after the break, but VAR ruled it out for handball.

But it was an equally as marvellous strike from Lewis won the game as he swept the ball into the far corner for his first Premier League goal.

Iheanacho was in action for the entire duration of the game, while his international teammate, Wilfred Ndidi took the place of Hamza Choudhury in the 67th minute.

    Ndidi is the body and soul of Leicester. The coach can’t repeat the mistake of rushing him back from injury again, but he did… Ndidi is not fit (yet) from injury.
    His body says it all, the soul of the club is tied to the defensive midfielder. He needs to Matches (from the bench) to get back to the Ndidi of Leicester.
    As it is, the next two matches in the EPL will determine if Leicester will lose or retain the 3rd position on the table. Since his injury, they’ve gone 4 matches without a win…how long can they wait? the patience (Ndidi) of Leicester is being tested in a testing period.

    I think kelechi is suffering from over expectation. His mistakes started from man city, he shouldnt have accepted the role of a striker. He should have insisted in attacking midfield role he played during is under 17 playing days. Now he is been preasured to score goals by all means, trying to be their new vardi as a playmaker if u are preasured into attack u will lose all ur natural skillfull ideas. Imaging ozil, Chukwueze and iwobi they are enjoying their wings and are not giving any preasure to score goals but kelechi is overpreasured. His father has alot to do with this mistake in his carea, its like if the poor boy doesnt score he is always scared of returning to the bench. Kelechi is a pretending striker though he is not doing bad but believe it will not last expecially if deffenders begin to think ahead of him. He should try and speak to the couch to allow him keep the right wing or right side attacking midfield rowl to him selve i think he will establish him self better as a playmaker who can score goals.
