Video: Kelechi Iheanacho sets up nervy finish for Chelsea after Mateo Kovacic surrenders possession

Posted by

Leicester City have pulled one back against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge through the in-form Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Foxes headed into this game knowing that defeat could see them slip out of the Champions League qualification positions ahead of the final day of the season.

While winning the FA Cup was a superb achievement for them, having thrown away the top four last term, they’d be gutted to do it again this time around.

With Chelsea earning a two goal lead through Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho goals, Leicester’s Champions League hopes would be hanging in the balance.

However, Kelechi Iheanacho set up a nervy finish for Thomas Tuchel’s men in front of their returning fans by beating Edouard Mendy with a cool finish.

After Nampalys Mendy pinched the ball off Mateo Kovacic in the final third, Iheanacho was set up with a golden opportunity at goal, one which he didn’t pass up.
