A brace each from Harvey Barnes and substitute Jamie Vardy, who replaced Iheanacho on 59 minutes.

Ndidi who made his first league start since January 1st, was also replaced with six minutes remaining in the game.

Barnes opened scoring for Leicester on 30 minutes after running on to a pass dribbled past Pepe Reina who dashed off his line before slotting the ball into the net.

In the 63rd minute Vardy made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Tyrone Mings was adjudged to have handled a cross with his arm.

Vardy then added Leicester’s third after he smashed a low drive from inside the box past Reina.

And on 85 minutes Barne grabbed his brace as he slotted his effort beyond Reina’s reach from Marc Albrighton’s cutback.

The win saw Leicester maintain third spot on 53 points in the league table.

    It is increasingly becoming evident that a Vardy on wheelchair will always be the main man at LCFC.
    Hopefully and prayerfully too, Kele will not celebrate his 30th birthday still being an “understudy” at LCFC.

     
    • My bro, Kelechi seems to have bad advisors around him… He ought to have left Leicester in January for a team where he is guaranteed 90mins of football week-in-week-out… Too bad my guy can’t seem to even decide for himself!

    Hmmmm,I Think most of our Players are lazy,they feel comfortable in their orizon.
    yesterday match was supposed to be a bonus to Kelechi,he was clueless,lack of vision and tactical in front of goals,he played with zero discipline.

    As a striker capitalize on every opportunity that comes your way,that is why Ighalo is ahead,I dont think Kelechi do self training.

    Did u see the spirit immediately Valdi came in,the mood of players were lifted and it gave rise to the second goal.
    I dont just understand what is wrong with him..He cant continue this way
