Kelechi Iheanacho continues his impressive scoring form as he scored a double to help Leicester City reach their first semi-final for 39 years after a convincing 3-1 victory over Man United.

The foxes will play Southampton at Wembley with Chelsea and Manchester City set to battle in the other semi-final.

Brendan Rodgers side looked sharper and more positive against a lethargic United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failing once again to go all the way in a cup competition.

The United manager took a huge risk by benching Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw, which resulted to the loss against the Foxes.

Nigeriam=n striker Kelechi Iheanacho was the hero for Leicester as he struck twice and now has nine goals in nine matches.

He pounced on Fred's poor backpass to round Dean Henderson to open the scoring in the 24th minute after captain Harry Maguire played the Brazillian into danger.

Mason Greenwood scored the equaliser for United after a beautiful team move before half-time.

But Youri Tielemans put Leicester back in the lead with a good low finish seven minutes into the second half.
Befoe Kelechi Iheanacho found himself free at the back post to head in Leicester's third in the 78th minute.

Watch the full match highights:



The Super Eagles forward was voted Man of the Match for his heroics.



Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers praised Kelechi Iheanacho and his team's performance against a tough opponent, saying they are on the verge of making history.


Speaking to BBC, Rodgers said: "I'm obviously delighted. It was a great team performance. Every aspect of the game was complete. We showed courage to play football against one of Europe's greatest teams. I'm so happy for the players. I thought we thoroughly deserved it.

"Kelechi has always contributed. Maybe his confidence was lower but he works so hard every day and always comes in and gives his all. You see his confidence now. He's at the top of his game. It's a different structure [up front]. Kelechi is probably best with someone up there with him. Those two are working very well.

"Our solidity and intensity of press was very good. When we dropped into our shape we denied them space. To beat Manchester United 3-1 you have to be complete in all aspects of the game and the players did that.

"[The semi-final] is a way off yet. I told the players they were three games from history. Now it's two. We're making the right steps, we're on the right path. We're very ambitious to be the best we can be. That's the challenge and it's the test we're enjoying."
