Leicester city show West Brom how to play football with a 3-0 win

Leicester produced a super performance to beat West Brom 3-0 and tighten their grip on third spot in the Premier League.

Goals from Jamie Vardy (23), Jonny Evans (26) and Kelechi Iheanacho (36) in the space of 13 first-half minutes took the game away from West Brom to dent their hopes of an unlikely escape.

The victory takes the FA Cup finalists four points clear of West Ham in fifth, while Sam Allardyce’s side stay on 24 points – still nine behind Burnley in 17th.

The game at the King Power Stadium was remarkably open from the outset, Kelechi Iheanacho squandering a one-on-one chance in the third minute, a poor touch allowing Sam Johnstone to close him down.

At the other end, within moments, Mbaye Diagne contrived to miss his kick entirely when in space just yards from goal. A wastefulness West Brom fans have become familiar with.
