Kelechi Iheanacho hits first career double figure goals

Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has scored his first ever career double figure goal after scoring in Leicester City 3-0 win against Crystal Palace in a Premier League game on Saturday.

The former Manchester City striker who has been in top form since the restart of Premier League opened the scoring for Leicester City to continue his goal scoring form.

After coming from the bench to score a goal in Leicester City 2-1 loss to Everton at the Goodison Park at midweek, he got the nod to start against Crystal Palace and he duly delivered.

Kelechi for the first in a while scored a back-to-back Premier League goal after breaking the deadlock in the second half to give his side the lead.

The goal increased his season total tally to 10 goals (five in the Premier League) and 4 assists in all competition which is his highest return since he turned professional.

It was the first time ever that he would be hitting the double figure margin since he turned pro in 2015/2016.
