OFFICIAL: Leicester City Top Scorer & Top Playmaker This Season (Photos)

Will I be wrong if I say that Kelechi Iheanacho is the reason for Leicester City's unstoppable form at the moment?

Last night Kelechi Iheanacho scored again to help Leicester City thrashed West Brom 3-0 at the King Power Stadium, a victory that helped them extend their lead on Chelsea. Leicester City retains their third position on the league table while extending the lead against Chelsea to 5 points.

Leicester City has won their last three matches in a row and the architect of this Leicester City's form can be linked to Kelechi Iheanacho whose recent form has helped Brendan Rodger's overcome some obstacles this season.

A red hot Kelechi Iheanacho has guided Leicester City to their first-ever FA Cup finals in 50 years. Kelechi Iheanacho scored twice to send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United packing in the quarterfinals and scored the only goal against Southampton that sent the Foxes into the finals.

Before Kelechi Iheanacho ascended the throne of becoming Leicester City's hero, there were people before him that have regularly given Leicester City some stellar performance and won key matches for them.

When talking about those players, Jamie Vardy should always top the list as the veteran striker has done enough for the Foxes. Jamie Vardy won the Premier League Golden Boot award last season after a phenomenal season, scoring 25 goals to help Leicester City qualify for the Europa League.

Unfortunately, Jamie Vardy is having a bad season as he is struggling to replicate his last season's form for the Foxes this season. Although he has had some nice moments his injuries have hindered him from performing effectively for the Foxes this season.

With Jamie Vardy's poor form, Kelechi Iheanacho has been able to outscore him this season. The Nigerian striker has also outscored the likes of James Madison, Ayoze Perez, & Havey Barnes.

Kelechi Iheanacho is the Leicester City top scorer this season but how many goals has he scored?
