Some Leicester City were delighted with the display of Kelechi Iheanacho during yesterday’s 3-1 triumph over Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final.

The Nigeria international has been in peak form since becoming a regular starter alongside Jamie Vardy last month and he scored twice against the Red Devils.

The 24-year-old took advantage of Fred’s poor backpass to goalkeeper Dean Henderson to open the scoring midway through the opening half.

United levelled the scores through Mason Greenwood before the interval, but the Foxes stepped up and dominated the proceedings after the break.

Youri Tielemans continued his fine campaign with a superb 30-yard run, bypassing several opposition players before firing his shot past Henderson.

Vardy thereafter missed an easy chance to make it 3-1. Iheanacho eventually netted his brace in the 78th minute after a header at the back post from a freekick.

Iheanacho has been a key player for the Foxes in the injury absence of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes over the past few weeks.

The striker helped the Foxes to reach their first FA Cup semi-final in 39 years. They will face Southampton in the last four of the competition next month.

A selection of Foxes fans were delighted with the performance from their striker and here are some reactions on Twitter.

Vardy has struggled to find the back of the net in recent months and there has been speculation that the club may be eyeing another new striker.

However, Iheanacho has proved that he could be the leader of the attack with his exceptional run of form since February with nine goals from as many games.

He has more than two years left in his current deal with the Midlands outfit, but his progress may have caught the eye of former club Manchester City.

The Cityzens included a £50m buy-back clause when Iheanacho signed for the Foxes in 2017 and Brendan Rodgers recently admitted that the option may still be valid.
