Kelechi Iheanacho missed the chance to open his Premier League goals account this season, after failing to convert from the penalty spot in Leicester’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Monday, Completesports.com reports.
Iheanacho was selected to lead the line for Leicester while first choice striker Jamie Vardy was among the substitutes.
He had the chance to put the Foxes ahead on 20 minutes but saw his spot kick saved by Vicente Guaita in goal for Palace.
In the 72nd minute of the game which was his eight appearance in the league, the Super Eagles star was replaced by Demarai Gray.
Wilfred Ndidi who recently returned from injurywas an unused substitute while Eberechi Eze was also benched in the game.
After a goalless first half, it was Palace who broke the deadlock in the 58th minute thanks to Wilfred Zaha who finished off a counter-attacking move.
But with seven minute remaining in the game Harvey Barnes rescued a point for Leicester as he created a bit of space for himself before drilling the ball into the corner.
Leicester are now temporarily second on 29 points and Palace 13th on 19 points in the league table.
