Kelechi Iheanacho Scores First EPL Goal For Leicester As Riyad Mahrez Stars In Foxes Win Over West Brom

Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first English Premier League for Leicester City as the Foxes defeated West Brom 4-1 at the Hawthorns.

Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy were the stars of the show as Leicester City came from behind to hammer home another nail in the coffin for West Brom.

Claude Puel’s men came back from a goal down to win West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Salomon Rondo gave West Brom an early lead when he poked Burke’s excellent cross home after eight minutes.

But Vardy volleyed home a perfectly weighted Riyad Mahrez ball for Leicester City’s equaliser in the 21st minute.

It was 1-1 at the break.

Mahrez netted Leicester’s second goal of the game by dinking the ball over Foster after nice work from Kelechi Iheanacho in the 62nd minute.

Iheanacho, who came on for Shinji Okazaki, scored his first Premier League goal for Leicester in the 76th minute courtesy of a West Brom defensive error.

Wilfred Ndidi volleyed wide from distance in the 87th minute.

Vincente Iborra took advantage of the shaky West Brom defence to add a fourth for Leicester in injury time.
