In a triumphant return to form, Leicester City secured an impressive 3-1 victory against 10-man Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night, ending their previous five-game winless streak in the Premier League. Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho, who played a pivotal role in the match, expressed his delight at the team’s turnaround.
Prior to the clash with Arsenal, Leicester had endured a challenging run, registering four defeats and one draw in five consecutive league games. The victory marked Leicester’s first league win over Arsenal since 1994.
Iheanacho, a standout performer in the match, opened the scoring in the first half. Subsequent second-half goals from Jamie Vardy, who converted a penalty, and Riyad Mahrez sealed the much-needed win for the Foxes. The turning point in the game occurred when Arsenal’s Kostantinos Mavropanos was sent off for fouling Iheanacho, who was poised to capitalize on a clear goal-scoring opportunity.
Reacting to the significant victory, Iheanacho took to his verified Twitter handle, describing it as a “Great result back to winning ways.” The goal against Arsenal marked Iheanacho’s second in the current campaign.
The comprehensive win not only rejuvenates Leicester City’s standing in the Premier League but also underscores the team’s resilience and determination. As the Foxes celebrate this crucial victory, Iheanacho’s impact on the pitch continues to solidify his role as a key contributor to Leicester’s success in the ongoing season.
