    Kelechi Iheanacho scored from the penalty spot as Leicester City extended their unbeaten start in the Championship to six victories out of seven with victory at Norwich. Iheanacho and Kasey McAteer each netted goals at Carrow Road to give Leicester victory.

    Stephy Mavididi exploited laziness within the hosts defence but his right-footed effort went wide, while Kenny McLean came close late on but his left-footed shot came crashing against the crossbar instead of going in.

    Kasey McAteer

    Kasey McAteer’s first-half header gave Leicester a lead they never looked like relinquishing. Stephy Mavididi found him after Christian Fassnacht fouled McAteer; then former Galatasaray man Kasey McAteer confidently drilled his penalty into the high centre of goal from 20 yards out.

    Leicester attempted to extend their advantage after halftime but Mavididi’s right-foot shot went wide. Onel Hernandez made another attempt when his cross was met by Jack Stacey but Hermansen made an excellent save to maintain Leicester’s clean sheet.

    Millers fans were left lamenting missed opportunities as Leicester secured all three points in the final minute through Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s run into the box, who then unleashed a low shot which Johansson dove right to save. With this victory, Leicester now stand in second place of the Championship table, boasting 18 points after seven matches.

    Hamza Choudhury

    Choudhury has proven his worth as one of Leicester City’s standout players over their first two games this season, being adept in one-on-one duels and closing down crosses, something which has plagued them this campaign.

    He has demonstrated good pace and agility. His positioning has been excellent and he has been effective at cutting off passes directed towards Norwich forwards.

    Although his decision making can sometimes be hasty and his errors cost the team goals, his work rate remains consistently high and his passing range for a defensive midfielder is respectable. Furthermore, his effectiveness at keeping possession and pushing forward in attack has shown itself. With Manchester City loanee Jordan Henderson as his mentor – this player may become one of the top performers in this league; however, improving his passing is necessary as his average pass average at this level falls well short.

    Mavididi

    Kelechi Iheanacho and Kasey McAteer scored to help Leicester City defeat Norwich 2-0 in the English Championship. With this victory, Leicester maintained their impressive start to the year while climbing up to second in the table.

    At half-time, Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho scored from a penalty kick. Christian Fassnacht got his hand to it but Iheanacho took advantage and scored.

    After half-time, Norwich continued their pressure but were unable to convert their efforts into clear cut opportunities. Stacey came close with a header but Hermansen made an outstanding save; Kenny McLean curled an effort against the bar; while Gabby Sara’s free-kick went into the side netting..

    Enzo Maresca made two substitutions in the 57th minute, replacing Casadei and Yunus with Wilfred Ndidi and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall for additional attacking urgency as the match entered its latter stages. But, despite these late adjustments, Foxes hung on for all three points – drawing within one point of Preston during that process.

    Iheanacho

    Kelechi Iheanacho converted two penalties and Kasey McAteer added another as Leicester City extended their unbeaten Championship streak to eight games with an impressive win at Norwich – their first defeat at home this season and dropping them into fifth position on the table.

    Teemu Pukki looked poised to give Norwich their third straight victory when his header off James Maddison’s corner struck with such precision, yet its awkward trajectory across Kasper Schmeichel made clear their frustration on an otherwise promising afternoon.

    Iheanacho took advantage of sloppy play in midfield to run through Norwich’s backline and unleash an arrowed left-footed shot past Gibson – his seventh goal this campaign from seven Championship appearances! Mavididi then tested Norwich’s lethargy with a low strike that clipped the crossbar before scoring himself.
