The 62-minute Substitute Kelechi Iheanacho and a first timer in appearance for the 2019/2020 season campaign with Leicester secure his team second position on the EPL table with a stunning performance.

Everton took the lead on 23 minutes after Djibril Sidibe’s right-wing cross was powerfully headed in by Richarlison from eight yards out.

Leicester had a penalty decision overturned with the help of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) after Mason Holgate was adjudged to have fouled Ben Chilwell. Shortly thereafter, the Nigeria top player set Jamie Vardy up with an assist to secure the team an equalizer.

Richarlison and Holgate spurned chances to double Everton’s advantage before Iheanacho came on for his first appearance of the league season in the 62nd minute and inspired the Foxes’ comeback.

Iheanacho crossed for Jamie Vardy to tap in his 13th goal of the season before the Nigerian curled in the winner, which was confirmed as onside after a VAR check.

Leicester moves to 32 points, eight points behind leaders Liverpool. Everton sit 17th place with 14 points
