His goal put Leicester City 3-1 ahead after the Foxes went into the lead in the fourth minute through Jamie Vardy.

Harry Kane levelled for Tottenham in the seventh minute but Riyad Mahrez put Leicester City back in front before Iheanacho’s goal looked to have sealed it.

Tottenham came back into the game as Erik Lamela and a Christian Fuch’s own goal made it 3-3 in the first 10 minutes of the second half.
