Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho set an unique record in a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday evening.

The Nigeira international has been in hot form since the start of February and became the first player in English Premier League history to score on all seven days of the week in the same season, when he found the back of the net at Stamford Bridge.

Iheanacho sweeped home a pin-point pass from Super Eagles teammate Wilfred Ndidi to halve Leicester’s deficit in London, but the Blues held on for all three points to move above the Foxes on the Premier League table.

The 24-year-old has scored all 12 of his Premier League goals this season in the last four months and has done so in just 15 starts.
