HOW?! Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho spurned a glorious chance to equalise against Manchester City late in proceedings last night with just Ederson to beat.
The Foxes put in a very spirited performance at the Etihad and threatened to throw cold water over City’s ignited title hopes. If Iheanacho had ice running through his veins he might have put away that chance instead of curling it well wide.
Ihenacho missed that on purpose,don’t give a bollox what anyone says 🤷🏻♂️

As a former City player, some fans have suggested that his miss could have been deliberate. Of course, we’re not doubting his professionalism or indicating that is the case.
It is ironic that the 22-year old Nigerian’s middle name is “Promise” since he was unable to convert that opportunity, which could have drawn Leicester level with City at 1-1 and made things so much more promising for us.
