Kelechi Iheanacho’s 94th Minute Goal Gave Leicester Maximum 3 Points As They Beat Everton 2-1

Iheanacho got on the end of a delightful Pereira through-ball and dispatches it with venom at the far corner.

There is an argument that says VAR will cost a manager his job and we are now set to find out if that is true.

Deep into injury time and Marco Silva, Everton’s embattled head coach had seen a much-improved performance from his side when Kelechi Ihenancho, the Leicester substitute, dashed through. He put the ball confidently past Jordan Pickford but a flag had gone up to disallow the goal.

No guesses for what happened next. A referral to Stockley Park; an agonizing wait as little yellow and black lines was dragged around a screen.

After a lengthy VAR review in which the initial decision on the pitch was offside, the review overturns it and deems that Mina’s knee kept the striker onside! The decision was a goal as the King Power Stadium erupted in joyous celebration, Silva went from being on the brink of a point to simply on the brink.

2-1 Leicester! Incredible scenes!

Yesterday’s match was Iheanacho’s first appearance in the Premier League so far this season.
