Jamie Vardy scored for the eighth league game in a row to break the deadlock after being played through the Villa defence.
Iheanacho released the forward through the middle of the Villa defence even with Mings still in place. He speeds away from Konsa and rounds Heaton. Vardy mis-kicks his first strike at goal, but fortune was on his side as he was able to gather his effort ahead of the recovering Villa men and slot it into the net.
Maddison was afforded space and time down the left flank. He whips a low cross in hard towards the run of Iheanacho.
Fantastic performance from the team. Happy to get another goal and assist. 8 wins in a row that’s it 💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/EC3RiP2FoQ

The Foxes seemingly had command of the contest, but Jack Grealish’s deflected strike just before the interval to give the home side a lifeline.
Another win for The Foxes. And not only do they keep getting wins, but they do it with style. They are a joy to watch.
The gap with Manchester City becomes 6 points, while the gap with Liverpool remains 8 points.
