Iheanacho’s first Premier League hat-trick punishes Sheffield United

Kelechi Iheanacho scored thrice as Leicester City thrashed Sheffield United 5-0 to consolidate their place in the top four.
Iheanacho tapped home a Jamie Vardy cross six minutes before the break to score on three successive Premier League game for the first time.
Ayoze Perez added the second with a lovely finish four minutes after the hour mark with Vardy once again setting up Iheanacho for his second of the afternoon five minutes later.
The Nigeria international powered home his third goal of the game from 25 yards out, before Vardy’s cross was turned home by Ethan Ampadu at close range to round off a bruising defeat for the visitors.
Leicester moved into second position above Manchester United and eight points clear of West Ham in fifth, with the two sides facing each other later on Sunday.
