sbobet.ca Kelechi Iheanacho became the first player in English football to score a goal after VAR intervention as Leicester beat Fleetwood 2-0 to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Leicester striker initially saw his second strike of the night ruled out for offside, but the decision was checked by the Video Assistant Referee as referee Jon Moss overturned a tight call to award the goal.

Earlier, Iheanacho broke the deadlock for his side in the 43rd minute before the historic VAR moment secured Leicester victory and a fourth-round tie away at Peterborough.

Mahrez was one of two players to keep their place in the Leicester side from Saturday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea, and the Algeria international, who was captain for the evening, looked to make an early impact, releasing Daniel Amartey but the full-back's cross was easily cut out by goalkeeper Chris Neal.

Leicester were not having things all their own way against the League One side and Eldin Jakupovic was forced into smart saves to deny Conor McAleny and Kyle Dempsey.

In the 33rd minute, Mahrez grazed the outside of the post but it wasn't long before Leicester had the lead with Islam Slimani flicking the ball on for Iheanacho, who slid the ball under the onrushing Neal.

It was not only Leicester's first shot on target of the evening, but the Premier League club's first of the entire tie including the goalless draw at Highbury 10 days ago.

Slimani might have extended the lead at the start of the second half but he snatched at his chance and put the ball wide.

Iheanacho twice had the ball in the net during the second half. His first effort was rightly ruled out but on the second occasion after 77 minutes, after the flag again went up but Moss consulted with the video assistant referee, and after a pause of one minute and seven seconds it was 2-0 to Leicester.

Jamie Vardy came on as a substitute against his former club with 10 minutes remaining, bringing applause from both sets of supporters as Leicester comfortably saw out the tie to progress to the next round. sbobet.ca

Team News

Leicester made nine changes from the side that drew 0-0 against Chelsea with Riyad Mahrez, who was named captain, one of the two players to keep his place. Fleetwood made just three changes with Gethin Jones, George Glendon and Jordie Hiwula-Mayifuila all coming into the starting line-up.

Man of the Match

Iheanacho's second goal of the night will go down in the history books with the striker becoming the first player in English football to score a goal via a VAR decision.

In the end, it was quite a comfortable night for Claude Puel's side but only after the intervention of VAR. Iheanacho was the beneficiary and it capped an excellent night for the former Manchester City striker, who scored his second and third goals for the club.

Opta stats

Leicester City have won 17 of their last 19 FA Cup home games against lower league opposition (D1 L1), winning each of their last six at the King Power.

Iheanacho has scored seven goals in eight appearances in the FA Cup, however these were his first goals as a Leicester player (five for Manchester City).

What's next?

Leicester are back in Premier League action on Saturday with a home game against Watford, while Fleetwood also return to league action against Blackburn in League One.

Chelsea transfer news: Real Madrid prepare bold Kylian Mbappe plan for Eden Hazard


เล่น บอล That’s the report of the Mirror with Hazard said to be the Spanish heavyweight’s first-choice target.Real Madrid are looking to recruit a top-class new forward following Cristiano Ronaldo’s £88million move to Juventus earlier this month.

And Los Blancos are thought to have identified Hazard as their No 1 target to replace the 40-goal-a-season attacker.Real Madrid have also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, although they have publicly denied making approaches for either of the pair and those deals are far less attainable this year.

But a move for Chelsea star Hazard is far more achievable - even though the Mirror claim the Blues would not sell the 27-year-old for as much as £170m. That is unlikely to put off Madrid, who it is claimed are willing to pay a fee higher than that which PSG paid for Mbappe - £166m - to make his loan move from Monaco permanent.

The French club also completed a mammoth deal เล่น บอล for Neymar, paying £198m to sign the Brazilian ace from Barcelona 12 months ago.The Mirror claim that Chelsea are insistent they will not sell Belgian international Hazard, who starred at the World Cup to inspire the Red Devils to a third-placed finish at the expense of England.

But Hazard himself has hinted at a desire to test himself in the Spanish capital despite Chelsea being ready to table a new £300,000-a-week contract. He said: “After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different. “I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will make the final decision if they want to let me go. เล่น บอล
