Kelechi Iheanacho hit a hat-trick as Leicester City smashed Sheffield United 5-0 in the Blades’ first game of the post-Chris Wilder era.

The Nigerian striker slotted home Jamie Vardy’s low cross from close range six minutes before the break to put his side in front and then, after Ayoze Perez netted from the edge of the area in the second half, he added another two to complete his treble.

His second was a result of a fine cross-field assist from Vardy and the third a long-range strike after the Blades defenders sat back and invited him to shoot.

 

Vardy failed to get on the scoresheet for the seventh straight match but also set up the fifth, driving a low cross towards the back post which Ethan Ampadu diverted into this own net.
