Iheanacho opened the scoring for Leicester in the 24th minute. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall centred the ball for Ricardo Pereira, waiting for it on the edge of the box.

Pereira slipped the ball through to Iheanacho whose low drive whizzed through the legs of Stoke keeper Mark Travers and inside the near post from a tight angle.

Ndidi received the ball and found Vardy who picked his spot, rolling the ball beyond Stoke keeper for his fifth goal of the season in all competitions.
