What happened last time against Man Utd?

Kelechi Iheanacho
Kelechi Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho, so often a threat in the FA Cup, scored a brace for Leicester against Man Utd last season.

In the last home encounter, Leicester City secured a hugely impressive 3-1 victory over Manchester United en route to the Club's first-ever FA Cup triumph under the management of Brendan Rodgers.

The Red Devils were the opponents in the last-eight with City looking to reach a first semi-final in the competition for 39 years. Man Utd, on the other hand, were 12-time winners of the FA Cup, but they fell behind on 24 minutes as Kelechi Iheanacho seized on Fred's backpass to slot past David de Gea.

Mason Greenwood got the visitors back on level terms before the break, but Youri Tielemans - Leicester's eventual hero in the final - struck from outside the area to put City back in the ascendancy. Iheanacho, on the other hand, hit a third with 12 minutes remaining to continue the Foxes' FA Cup adventure.
