EPL: Iheanacho Scores, Lookman Benched As Leicester, Man United Share The Spoils

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho was on the score sheet as Leicester City held Man United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Featuring in his 20th Premier League appearance, the Nigerian international has netted three goals this season.

The former Man City star scored the opening goal in the 63rd minute thanks to a beautiful assist from James Maddison.

However, the Red Devils leveled score in the 66th minute through Fred to immediately unsettled the Foxes.

Iheanacho was later substituted in the 90th minute for Daka after an impressive display.

The visitor thought they had secured the winner after Maddison extended their lead to 2-1 in the 80th minute, however, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) chopped off the goal.


All effort to score the winning goal proved abortive for both team as they had to settle for a point.

On the other hand, Ademola Lookman was missing in action as he was on the bench for the entire 90 minutes.

    Congratulations Nacho, four against Manchester United so far.

  • And Eguavon listen to online coaches and technical advisers come bench Iheanacho. Unbelievable!

  • Iheanacho is not a starter. He can’t play 90 minutes. He is an impact sub… Na so dem just dey yan blah, blah, blah. Una see am now.

    We just threw our world cup ticket away. Hope we did learn from this hard lesson.

    • Father 2 years ago

      Don’t worry. Just support the Black Stars at the World cup. We will represent the Super Eagles well.

      • John-I 2 years ago

        I’m supporting Black Star already bro.
        If Otto Addo was Nigerian coach, he’ll never have listened to online coaches and desktop critics to bench Iheanacho. Jordan Ayew is the most criticised Black Stars player(far more criticised than Iheanacho) yet, Otto Addo played him in Abuja, refusing to listen to online coaches! That’s the difference between a strong-willed coach and feeble-minded coach!

        Up Black Stars jare

          Lmao!! I’m sure your Ghanaian neighbors are all over you at this trying times. Eh ya!! My brother it was a massive mistake to bench Iheancho in the return leg. What clueless coach does that??

          Our best chances in Kumasi was created by Kelechi and you benched him for 90 minutes when we needed to score by bringing in Shehu at a time Aribo was struggling in the AM role. Why not bring in Iheancho and revert Aribo back to where Rohr was playing him???

          Egudiola thought he was going to reap where he didn’t sow. That’s where we are today. It wasn’t a big deal to sack Rohr we were just worried about who replace him and oh boy it was a disaster of monumental proportion

    • How come he did not score in Kumasi if he is that good as a starter. How come he has only three goals this season. Don’t you that he is starting at Leicester because vardybus out.

      What about the times eguavon started him.

      He started against Tunisia but we lost now.

      Nigerians we are bad losers. It’s not bad to ring changes when your first team players are not giving me what you want.

      He should have scored all the goals in Kumasi now so that we don’t have to do much in Abuja.

      Here we go again. Eguavon this eguavon that. When are we going to settle with the fact that most of our players are average.

      For the Ghanaians, I wish them well. But in my estimation, they are belwo average players.

      So addo is now a world class Coach…I laugh. Lets see. I wish them well sha

        Abeg go and sit down. You’re part of those online-coaches that made Eguaveon lose his job. Instead sticking to his guns, he rather listened to you clueless fellows. Shameless deceiver lol
