Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho once again shone brightly on Tuesday (vs Chelsea) and entered the Premier League history books as the first player to score a goal in all seven days of the week in the same season.

An assertive display (2-1) from Tuchel’s men over the Foxes at Stamford Bridge strengthened Chelsea’s grip on a Champions League position.

Compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi set up the former Manchester City star in the 76th minute of the match to put some respect to the scoreline and save face against a dominant Chelsea display.
