Fellow African Fousseni Diabaté was also part of the rout as he grabbed a brace on his debut.

Iheanacho who has not really enjoyed game time since joining the Foxes opened his account in the 12th minute with a fine solo effort from outside the box and completed his double by tapping in a fine cross from Christian Fuchs in the 29th. Ndidi completed the demolition in the 92nd minute.

Iheanacho had earlier in the month of January against Fleetwood Town in the same competition scored a brace- one of them being the first ever VAR goal in England.
