Kelechi Iheanacho has scored a superb hat-trick for Leicester City on Sunday as they trashed Sheffield United 5-0 to move into second place in English Premier League.
The game is Blades’ (Sheffield) first game since the departure of manager Chris Wilder. Having been appointed interim manager until the end of the season on Saturday, under-23s boss, Paul Heckingbottom took charge of bottom club United following Wilder’s departure by “mutual consent” after almost five years in charge.
However, Leicester came out strong at King Power Stadium on Sunday, where Iheanacho continued his fine goalscoring form as the Foxes (Leicester) gave an amazing performance in the second half.
The Blades, 14 points from safety with only nine games left, have now lost six of their last seven league games.
Nigerian striker, Iheanacho opened the floodgates in the 38th minute at King Power Stadium with a close-range finish from Jamie Vardy’s pass after a flowing move.
Iheanacho’s third goal in his last three games was followed by Ayoze Perez’s fine strike from the edge of the area in 64th minute.
The Nigerian scored again in the 69th minute from Vardy’s cross and completed his treble with a 25-yard blast past Aaron Ramsdale.
Blades defender, Ethan Ampadu’s own goal from Vardy’s effort in the 80th minute sealed the rout for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who moved above Manchester United and within 15 points of runaway leaders Manchester City.
Kelechi Iheanacho has now scored in three consecutive league games for the first time in his career: against Burnley, Brighton and now Sheffield.
Leicester move into second place, above Manchester United, who face West Ham later on Sunday evening (07:15 GMT), while Sheffield United remain 12 points from safety.
