Kelechi Iheanacho is excited to score another English Premier League goal as his Leicester City side beat Aston Villa 4-1.
It was Iheanacho's first start in the EPL this season. He scored his second goal of the campaign and provided an assist.
“Fantastic performance from the team. Happy to get another goal and assist. 8 wins in a row that’s it 💪🏾,” reread tweet on Iheanacho’s Twitter handle.

Brendan Rodgers’ men extended their winning run to eight games following another superb performance at the Villa Park.
Iheanacho set up Jamie Vardy for the first goal in the 20th minute. He got on the score sheet in the 41st minute to make it 2-0 after tucking home James Maddison’s perfect delivery, only for Villa captain Jack Grealish to whip an effort into the bottom corner on the stroke of half-time.
The hosts’ comeback was short-lived, however, with Jonny Evans heading in from a corner shortly after the interval.
Vardy then dashed clear with 15 minutes remaining to slide an effort beyond Heaton and put the game out of Villa’s reach.
Leicester remain second in the top flight, and now have a six-point advantage over Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s side were beaten by Manchester United on Saturday.
