Nigerian Striker Kelechi Ihenacho continued his return to form after grabbing another goal and yet another assist in back to back Epl games he has played and to make it his fourth goal of the season in all competitions.

After waiting for 25 games before scoring his first Premier League goal last weekend, Super Eagles striker was on target again on Sunday for Leicester City in their 4-1 demolition of Aston Villa.

The maximum point secured by the Foxes on Sunday has helped the team narrow the gap between them and table-toppers Liverpool back to eight points.

Iheanacho, 23, was the hero for the Foxes last weekend against Everton, with the Nigerian star setting up Jamie Vardy before scoring a late winner.

He missed the win over Watford during the week and he justified the chance given to him on Sunday by manager Brendan Rodgers as he marked his first league start in a year against Aston Villa on Sunday with another goal to his name.

Just as he did against Everton, the goal poacher provided an assist for Jamie Vardy for the opener before tapping in a James Maddison’s cross for the Foxes’ second.

Jack Grealish pulled one back for Aston Villa to halve the deficit shortly before halftime, but Jonny Evans restored Leicester’s two-goal lead in the 49th minute before Vardy nailed the final coffin for Villa with his 75th minute goal.

He played for 64 minutes in the away tie at Villa Park.
