In total, Kelechi has scored nine goals across all competitions and he could play Champions League football if Leicester maintain their position until the end of the season.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles star Kelechi Iheanacho grabbed his first Premier League hat-trick on Sunday, March 14, helping Leicester City defeat Sheffield United 5-0.

Leicester took full advantage of both Chelsea and Everton’s slip this weekend and of a team bereft of, well, anything.

Sheffield were very poor and looked shellshocked by the sacking of manager Chris Wilder 24 hours earlier.
