Kelechi Iheanacho extended his career-best scoring form with a blistering winning goal as Leicester rallied to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the English Premier League and establish a seven-point cushion in the top four on Monday.

The Nigeria striker made it 14 goals in his last 14 games in all competitions when he brought down a long ball forward from Jonny Evans, cut inside on his favored left foot, and – with little back-lift – smashed a rising shot inside the near post in the 80th minute.

Iheanacho had earlier set up Timothy Castagne for Leicester’s 50th-minute equalizer that canceled out Wilfried Zaha’s opening goal for Palace in the 12th minute. He has proven to be a revelation in the second half of the season after coming into the team because of injuries to teammates Harvey Barnes and James Maddison.
