Gradually, Kelechi Iheanacho, with both hands, is grabbing his future at Leicester City. No one is handing it out to him for free. He is there, fighting for it.

He made another case for it with a goal and assist in Leicester City’s 4-1 win away at Aston Villa on Sunday, December 8.

The 23-year-old was on from the first minute of the game, in his first Premier League of the season and he was the one who created Leicester City’s opener in the 20th minute.

Iheanacho received the ball close to the centre circle, nutmeg an opponent and sent a through ball to Jamie Vardy who rounded Tom Heaton before scoring.

About 20 minutes later, he got on the scoresheet himself to double the lead for the Foxes. He did that by simply latching on a cross from Youri Tielemans.

That was his second league goal for Leicester City and his fourth in total so far this season.

Iheanacho played on until in the 64th minute when he was taken off for Harvey Barnes.
