Leicester City’s players may have been sorry to see Craig Shakespeare sacked last week but there was no trace of self pity on Tuesday night as they came from behind to earn a place in the Carabao Cup Fourth Round 3-1 home win against Championship club, Leeds United.
Leeds United took the lead thanks to a lovely goal by Pablo Hernández but that proved to be the catalyst for a commanding fightback by the host side, who responded with fine goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez.
The result, following on from the victory at Swansea City on Saturday, brought Michael Appleton’s tally to two wins from his two matches in temporary charge but the caretaker manager is likely to step down soon as Leicester prepare to make a full-time appointment.
Meanwhile Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has been nominated for Leicester City‘s Man of the Match award in their 3-1 Carabao Cup Fourth Round home win against the Championship club on Tuesday night, just as the forward expresses his personal satisfaction for his input in the game.
Iheanacho tweeted on Twitter handle: “Very pleased with the team’s victory tonight. And happy to have scored a goal and an assist. On to the next one #GodisTheGreatest.”
Leicester announced a four-man shortlist for the Man of the Match award on their verified Twitter handle, and fans of Leicester City have voted for their best player in the win against Leeds which Kelechi have the highest vote (You can still vote for him below).
