Iheanacho extends scoring streak as Foxes roar to seventh straight win

Kelechi Iheanacho was on target for Leicester City who earned a seventh consecutive win in the Championship to consolidate their position on top of the league table after a 3-1 away win over Swansea City.

The Foxes came from behind to earn a well-deserved victory at the Swansea Stadium where they also made Championship history by becoming the first side in the competition’s history to win their opening six away matches of a league campaign.

Matt Grimes volleyed home the opening goal in the 20th minute, his third of the season. Jannik Vestergaard grabbed the equaliser in the 43rd minute while Abdul Fatawu scored his first goal for the log leaders giving the Foxes the lead in the 63rd minute. Iheanacho grabbed the third in the 87th minute to put the game beyond the reach of their host. 

Jannik Vestergaard scores the equaliser

It is the fourth consecutive goal for the Nigeria international which also takes his tally of the season to six goals. He had replaced skipper Jamie Vardy in the 84th minute. 

Iheanacho’s compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi was on for the entire duration of the game and was instrumental in helping Leicester control the midfield. 

Leicester who have won 11 out of 12 games this season will be hoping to extend their winning streak to nine games when they welcome Sunderland to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.
