Iheanacho: Leicester City star’s amazing scoring record against Aston Villa

Kelechi Iheanacho - Leicester City
The Nigeria international has scored more goals against the Claret & Blue Army than any other team in his professional career

Kelechi Iheanacho continued his fine scoring run against Aston Villa, with the Leicester City man now scoring seven goals against the Villans.

Iheanacho saved the Foxes’ blushes after netting the equaliser in Wednesday’s English Football League Cup semi-final first leg game that ended in a 1-1 draw against Dean Smith’s men.

The ex-Manchester City forward fired past Orjan Nyland after Douglas Luiz had been caught in possession by Hamza Choudhury.

Frederic Guilbert had handed the visitors a 28th-minute lead after throwing himself into the danger zone to jab Anwar El Ghazi's cross past Kasper Schmeichel.

With this, the Nigeria international has now been directly involved in seven goals in his five competitive appearances against the Villa Park giants.

On a larger scale, he boasts six goals in all appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side this term.

He would be hoping to extend his goal tally to seven when Leicester City host Southampton in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

The former English champions are second in the English top-flight log with 45 points from 21 outings.
