Kelechi Iheanacho Wins Goal Of The Month Award For April

Kelechie Iheanacho has been voted Leicester City's goal of the month for April with his stunning strike against Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old powered home the winner for Brendan Rodgers' side in the 80th minute in their Premier League league clash in the month under review.

Iheanacho received a timely and precise delivery from Jonny Evans before making a run into the guests' danger zone dribbling two defenders then fired the shot which went straight into the net.

The goal helped the King Power Stadium outfit complete a dramatic comeback after Timothy Castagne's 50th-minute strike cancelled out Wilfried Zaha's early goal in the first half.

This is a form of reward for Iheanacho who has been firing on all cylinders for the Foxes.

Iheanacho has 18 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances across all competitions for Leicester so far this campaign and he could increase the tally before the season wraps up this month.
