Iheanacho rated highly in Leicester win 

Although he neither found the back of the net nor provided an assist, Leicester City Mercury online platform still rated Super Eagles sharp shooter Kelechi Iheanacho highly in his club's 3:0 New Year's day away victory to Newcastle.

Ayoze Perez, James Maddison and substitute Hamza Choudry scored all the goals for Leicester in this match as Newcastle could not fashion any way back into the game.

Back to Iheanacho: he played for 63 minutes, touching the ball a total of 24 times delivering 1 clear shot on target.

Rating him for the match, Jordan Blackwell writing for Leicester Mercury said:

"Kelechi Iheanacho: A rarity for Iheanacho this season in that he did not register a goal or assist. He played well though, particularly with how he dropped deep to link play. In the box, his lacked his usual killer instinct. 7"
