Leicester City Five-goal overcome 'Posh' hurdle in FA Cup

Premier League Leicester City made light work of a potentially troublesome FA Cup fourth round hurdle on Saturday as doubles from Kelechi Iheanacho and debutant Fousseni Diabate eased them towards a 5-1 victory at third-tier Peterborough United.

The 21-year-old Nigerian international Iheanacho, who has taken a liking to England's famous old knock-out tournament at both Manchester City and Leicester, took his tally of FA Cup goals to nine in nine games with two fine first-half strikes.

A smart toe-poked goal from City's new signing, Malian international Diabate, after just nine minutes had quickly calmed any fears for the visitors at London Road against the League One side nicknamed 'Posh'.

Iheanacho cracked home a superb low, left-foot shot three minutes later before his volleyed finish from Christian Fuchs' pinpoint cross in the 29th minute emphasised just why 45 league places separate the two sides.
