Nigeria international Ahmed Musa played 90 minutes and scored as Leicester City thrashed Sheffield United 4-1 in the second round of the Carabao Cup -the new name for the League Cup.

Musa has been linked with a move away from the 2016 Premier League champions but he ignored his situation to put in an impressive performance, sealing the Foxes win with a goal in stoppage time.

The 25-year-old was the quickest to reach a blocked ball but his first time shot at goal was denied before he pounced on the rebound to score at the far post.

It was a goal that rounded up his brilliant performance of the night.

Demarai Gray opened the scoring for Leicester City in the 52nd minute from a solo run before Islam Slimani struck twice in four minutes, rounding the keeper for the first and then sliding in at the far post.

The Super Eagles star will be hoping that his fine performance against Sheffield United will get him a place in Leicester City’s matchday squad for their weekend trip to Manchester United in the Premier League.
