Iheanacho Enters Game As Sub As Leicester Set Two Records In Win Against Manchester City
Kelechi Iheanacho returned to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday evening as Leicester City shocked Manchester City 5-2 to go top of the Premier League standings after three rounds, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

The Manchester City old boy entered the game as a substitute with five minutes remaining after Jamie Vardy was forced off with a minor groin injury.

Iheanacho's international teammate Wilfred Ndidi was unavailable for selection, having undergone surgery on an
adductor injury.

In a scintillating ninety minutes of football, Brendan Rodgers' team were unfazed despite going behind as early as the fourth minute with Riyad Mahrez scoring and celebrating against his old team.

The Foxes deserved the win after brilliant finishing from Jamie Vardy who netted his first hat-trick of the new season, and additional tallies from James Maddison and Youri Tielemans, while Nathan Ake pulled a goal back on 84 minutes.

According to the statisticians at OPTA, Leicester City set two records in the win vs Manchester City - winning each of their opening three games for the first time in the club's history and becoming the first side in Premier League history to score three goals from the penalty spot in a single game.
