The foxes had an exceptional night at their stadium.

Leicester City

boss Brendan Rodgers praised the Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy  and Ayoze Perez after his side's brilliant performance against Sheffield United.

Leicester beat Sheffield by 5 goals at King Power Stadium tonight, and Iheanacho scored a hat-trick and Vardy sent two assists. Perez also scored another goal and the other one was an own goal scored by Ethan Ampado. This was the first time that Iheanacho had scored in three consecutive Premier League games and he had a good pairing with Jamie Vardy on Leicester's attack. After the game, Rodgers praised his team's offensive line and their performance in today's game.

“I’m delighted (for Iheanacho),”

said Rodgers.

“I’ve said I can see improvement in him and day on day he trains so hard.

“Him up there with Jamie (Vardy) is a really good combination. It was three good finishes, he’s clever and drops into space we want him to but overall his contribution tactically and overall game was very good.

“The combination of him, Jamie and Ayo (Ayoze Perez) was outstanding today. Jamie may not have scored but he was influential for us.”


Rodgers added:

“Patience was very important. With two teams playing similar systems, you know where the advantage is but it takes a little bit of time to find that.

“They have lost a number of games this season but many of them have been fairly tight so you know you are going to have to work them. We knew they were going to fight and be competitive, after the week they’ve had, because they are honest, true players.
