Iheanacho ends four-month goals drought

Kelechi Iheanacho was in action as Leicester City suffered a 5-2 defeat to in-form Brighton at the American Express Community Stadium on Sunday.

The 25-year-old opened the scoring for the visitors, a few seconds into the game, for his first goal this season, as well as his first since May, when he last scored in the Foxes’ 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

With his latest goal, Iheanacho has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 25 starts in the Premier League for Leicester (15 goals, five assists).

Wilfred Ndidi played probably the worst game of his career and will hope to get over it quickly.

Leicester’s refusal to sign a defender following the departure of Wesley Fofana to Chelsea forced Brendan Rodgers to play the midfielder out of position and deployed him as a centre-back.

Ndidi gave away a penalty that put the Seagulls 4-2 ahead and was also found wanting for the hosts’ third goal of the game.
