- Iheanacho increased his goal tally to seven across all competitions this campaign

Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho has continued his goals scoring form after netting in Leicester City's FA Cup at Griffin Park.

The 23-year-old needed just four minutes to fire the Foxes ahead against Brentford after connecting with a pass from right-back James Justin.

Christian Fuchs started the build-up from the left-back position after locating Dennis Praet in the middle who sent the ball down the flanks before the 21-year-old made that precise pass.

Iheanacho made no mistake burying the ball into the net after tapping the ball into the back of the net.
