The Super Eagles star continued his incredible run of form with another man of the match performance against the Red Devils.
Kelechi Iheanacho brilliant goalscoring streak continued on Sunday after he scored twice in Leicester City’s 3-1 win over Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final clash at the King Power Stadium.
Iheanacho has been brilliant in front of goal in recent games for the Foxes, and he continued in the same vein on Sunday.
He capitalised on a poor back pass from Fred to score his first before heading in at the back post in the second half for his second of the night.
The Nigerian international has now scored seven times in his last four games, including a hat-trick against Sheffield United last weekend.
