Late Iheanacho penalty fires Leicester past Man City in Community Shield

The former City striker, who departed the Etihad Stadium four years ago, settled a generally lacklustre curtain-raiser to the new domestic season at Wembley.

Iheanacho came off the bench in the 79th minute and was brought down by Nathan Ake in the closing minutes.

The Nigerian international, who scored 19 goals for the Foxes last term, calmly slotted the ball beyond goalkeeper Zack Steffen from 12 yards out to give the FA Cup winners the spoils.

Leicester City appoint Puel as Shakespeare successor

Puel takes over a contract until June 2020, with Michael Appleton remaining as assistant manager.

The club dismissed Shakespeare last week following a poor start to the season which saw them pick up just one win in their first eight Premier League matches.

Appleton took over on an interim basis and guided Leicester to a 2-1 triumph at Swansea City on Saturday and a 3-1 EFL Cup win over Leeds United three days later, but the former Blackburn Rovers manager has not been deemed the right man to take over full-time.

Leicester City 1 Tottenham 6 Four-star Kane pulls clear in Golden Boot race

England international Kane moved to 26 in the top flight for this season – putting him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the Golden Boot standings – while Son took his tally to 21 goals in all competitions in the emphatic victory.

The hammering puts Spurs on 83 points for 2016-17, three more than Leicester managed when they were crowned champions last term.

Son and Kane combined to put Spurs ahead before the South Korea star made it 2-0 as half-time approached with a well-taken volley.

The dream still lives as Leicester storms into Champions League quarters

The team was down and almost out in the first leg of their last-16 tie in Spain, losing 2-0 until a late away goal by Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes hope.

Leicester win without Ranieri

Jamie Vardy's first Premier League goals since December 10 and Danny Drinkwater's sensational volley handed the beleaguered champions their first victory since New Year's Eve, as interim boss Craig Shakespeare got his tenure off to a winning start.

Despite easing their relegation fears - Leicester now 15th, two points clear of the bottom three - the victory asks serious questions of the Foxes, who rekindled the spirit of their title-winning season so soon after Ranieri was relieved of his duties.

Champions Leicester City sack manager Ranieri

Ranieri, whose side is currently a point and a place above the relegation zone, leaves less than a year after clinching a remarkable title triumph.

Last year Leicester won the title by 10 points from Arsenal, to deliver one of the greatest sporting shocks in football history.
