Nigeria international and Leicester forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, put one at the back of the net against Everton on Wednesday night but it was not enough as his side went down 2-1 in a match that featured three Nigeria internationals.
Iwobi was on duty for Everton but subtituted for Yerri Mina in the 68th minute while Kelechi Iheanacho replaced Harvey Barnes at the start of the second half. As usual, Ndidi was present for the entire duration of the match.
Richarlison struck from close range before Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a debatable penalty, awarded following a lengthy VAR review for handball against Wilfred Ndidi.
Leicester rallied at the start of the second half and pulled a somewhat fortuitous goal back when Mason Holgate’s attempted clearance flew into the net off the face of substitute Kelechi Iheanacho.
But they were unable to make the most of the larger share of possession and chances to gain parity.
