Kelechi Iheanacho returned to scoring form as he netted for Leicester but it was not enough as they lost 4-2 at home to Newcastle in Friday night’s Premier League game, a result which does not help their pursuit for top-four finish, NGNewsHub.com reports.
Iheanacho got Leicester’s second goal with three minutes left in the game after cutting from the right before hitting a low strike into the bottom corner.
It was Iheanacho’s 11th goal in 22 Premier League appearances this season and his 18th strike in all competitions in the current campaign.

Also, he has now scored 10 Premier League goals since the start of March, the most of any player.
The only player to score more goals over this period in Europe’s top five leagues is fellow Nigerian Simy Nwankwo with 12 in Serie A.
Also in action for Leicester was Wilfred Ndidi who was later replaced in the 63rd minute for Ayoze Perez.
Leicester remain in third position on 63 points with three games left to play but could drop to fourth if Chelsea beat Manchester City on Saturday.
And it doesn’t get any easier for them as they have very difficult last three fixtures, two away games to Manchester United, Chelsea and an home tie against Tottenham Hotspur.
