Kelechi Iheanacho continued his impressive scoring form after netting two goals and had an assist, in Leicester City’s 3-1 win against Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday, Completesports.com reports.

Iheanacho has now scored seven goals in his last four games and has three goals in the FA Cup this season.

Also in action for the Foxes was Iheanacho’s compatriot Wilfred Ndidi.

In what was Brendan Rodgers’ 100th game in charge at the club, Leicester have now reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the first time since 1981-82 – they had lost five consecutive FA Cup quarter-final matches before Sunday’s game.

Leicester will take on Southampton in the semi-finals while Chelsea and Manchester City will do battle in the other fixture.

Leicester took the lead in the 24th minute as Iheanacho pounced on a loose pass from Fred, rounded Dean Henderson and slotted the ball home.

United for back on level terms in the 38th minute through Mason Greenwood who slammed his effort beyond Kasper Schmeichel following a superb dummy from Donny van de Beek.

In the 52nd minute Leicester took the lead again this time through Youri Tielemans who played a one-two with Iheanacho, went on a run at the United defence before shotting past Henderson.

And in the 78th minute Iheanacho got his second goal and Leicester’s third after heading in Marc Albrighton’s setpiece from the far post.
