'Iheanacho gave us a hard time' - West Brom boss Allardyce after defeat

 

Leicester City have moved four points clear in third place in the Premier League standings after thrashing relegation-threatened West Brom at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night.

Three goals in thirteen first half minutes from Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Kelechi Iheanacho secured victory for the Foxes who put their feet off the pedal in the second half.

In the 36th minute, the Nigeria international set himself before sending a deflected effort past goalkeeper Johnstone for his ninth goal in the top-flight - his best ever Premier League goalscoring season.

Baggies boss Sam Allardyce has admitted that Iheanacho and his strike partner Vardy made life difficult for his players, especially in the first half.

The Super Eagles star showed his intentions right from the blast of the whistle and had a big chance to open the scoring inside three minutes.

He raced clear after latching onto a loose ball, however his final touch let him down and Johnstone came out to close his effort down.

"Leicester are a lot better than Southampton and far better than Chelsea - they are as good as the top boys. They are only behind Man City on that performance," Allardyce said on BBC Sport.

"The front two (Iheanacho and Vardy) in the first half gave us a hard time. We did have the one chance - it wasn't even a bad miss, it was horrendous."

Up next for Leicester City, they have another home game against Eberechi Eze's Crystal Palace on Monday, April 26.
