No Iheanacho Magic As Leicester Stun Man City

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Kelechi Iheanacho played for 38 minutes on Saturday but was unable to produce any magic as Manchester City were humiliated by Premier League fairy tale Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium who won the potential title decider between the first and second teams in the Premier League table 3-1.

The former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles star came off the bench in the 52nd minute in place of Fabian Delph and was involved in the few chances City created at the opposition half.

Robert Huth scored the Foxes’ first goal in the third minute of the game when he slid home the ball from a freekick, Nicolas Otamendi who was marking the towering defender unable to save Manchester City.

Leicester had three more close chances in the first half through Jamie Vardy (twice) and Shinji Okazaki.

City had their penalty claim overruled when Pablo Zabaleta was fouled just outside the box.

Rihad Mahrez made it 2-0 three minutes into the second half with a sublime piece of skill, while Huth from another setpiece, this time from a corner, made it 3-0 when his looping header beat a stranded Joe Hart in the 60th minute.

Vardy hit the side net with 10 minutes to go but Sergio Aguero reduced the deficit to 3-1 when he guided the ball into the net with a glancing header in the 87th minute.

The Argentine was even presented with a chance to score again but after rounding Jasper Schmeichel in Leicester City goal, blasted the ball wide.

The Foxes are now six points clear in the Premier League table.
