Kelechi Iheanacho aka Senior Makes History
Kelechi Iheanacho, whose goal, however, was not enough to see his side win, but he set a new record in the English Premier League, he became the first player to score every day of the week in history of the league.
Iheanacho replaced James Maddison in the 60th minute of the game and did well to make his mark in the game. Leicester City, who beat Chelsea some days back to lift the English Emerite F.A Cup for the first time in their history, could not replicate the Sunday win as the Blues beat them and brought them down to the fourth place position.
The game was played in front of 8,000 returning fans at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea leapfrogged the Foxes into the third position on 67 points. Leicester is now fourth on 66. The Foxes are just three points ahead of fifth-place Liverpool, who wants to make it to the Champions League at all cost.
