Iheanacho Voted ‘Man Of The Match’ Against West Ham

Super Eagles star, Kelechi Iheanacho was at it again as he scored his third league goal of the campaign in Leicester City’s 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday evening.

It was just his second league start of the season and Iheanacho put Brendan Rodgers ahead in 40th minute via a cushioned header, but Pablo Fornals restored parity for West Ham on the stroke of half-time.

However, Demarai Gray’s finish in the 56th minute sealed the three points for the Foxes at the Olympic Stadium in London.

But despite scoring the winner, the England international missed out on the fans man of the match award with Iheanacho taking home the award.

The 23-year-old Iheanacho was voted as the star of the encounter, picking up 38% of the votes ahead of Gray who got 25%.
