Leicester City will play Southampton for a place in the FA Cup final after Kelichi Iheanacho double helped the Fennecs to a 3-1 victory over Manchester United at King Power Stadium.

Leicester were the better team in the first half, and his intense pressure pays off when Fred, under pressure, played the ball straight to Ihanachu in the penalty area – a chance for the superstar striker to shine.

The lackluster United struggled to click during the opening period, but the visitors were back in level at the break thanks to Mason Greenwood’s tidy finish after a good job from Paul Pogba on the left.

Brendan Rodgers’ side continued the match from where they left off after the first half and regained the lead thanks to a brilliant singles goal by Yuri Tillmans.

United tried to save the score with a four-way substitution midway through the second half, but to no avail, as Leicester managed to score the fourth goal of the match – extending their lead through Iheanacho’s header into the back post.

The semi-final match against Southampton will take place at Wembley from the weekend of April 17-18.
