FA Cup: Iheanacho Poaches Man Utd's Spot For Leicester

In-form Leicester City's striker, Kelechi Iheanacho showed great poaching skills as he scored a brace to dump Manchester United out of the FA Cup to set up a last-four clash with Southampton.

The Foxes took the lead following a horrendous error from Manchester United's Fred, whose backpass became a through-ball for Iheanacho.

The Nigerian collected it and rounded the keeper before firing home in the 24th minute.

United struck back seven minutes before halftime as Mason Greenwood rifled Paul Pogba's centre into the net, but they went behind again early in the second half as Youri Tielemans surged forward and fired into the bottom corner.

United's woeful defence was exposed again in the 78th minute as Iheanacho was left completely unmarked at the far post to head home Marc Albrighton's free-kick, sealing the victory and sending his side into the semis.

Chelsea will take on Manchester City in the other last-four tie.
