Iheanacho makes history as Chelsea defeat Leicester City 2-1
Kelechi Iheanacho, the Leicester City striker, on Tuesday night made history following his side’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.
Recall that Chelsea defeated Leicester at Stamford Bridge, thanks to goals from Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho.
However, Iheanacho’s goal wasn’t enough to give Leicester a point against Thomas Tuchel’s men.
But according to OptaJoe, Iheanacho’s strike against Chelsea means the Nigerian international has now become the first player in Premier League history to score a goal on all seven days of the week within a single season in the competition.
Iheanacho will now hope to lead Leicester to victory when they tackle Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in their final Premier League tie of the season.
Leicester are now in the fourth position on the Premier League table log with 66 points from 37 games.
