Leicester strengthened their grip on a top-four spot with a 3-0 win over relegation-threatened West Brom on Thursday night.
36th-minute goals from Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Kelechi Iheanacho put the Foxes four points clear of fifth-placed West Ham.
The result pushed West Brom closer to relegation as Sam Allardyce is set to undergo a very first relegation as a coach.
The Baggies are nine points safe with just six games to go.
Leicester and West Brom could have broken the deadlock in the early stages of the competition.
Iheanacho stole Dara O’Shea from possession in his own half and rushed to goal, but was denied by Sam Johnstone, who did well to force the attacker away.
And at the other end, Matheus Pereira chose Mbaye Diagne in the box, but the loaned Galatasaray striker misfired his shot at a crucial moment.
This miss came back to haunt Allardyce’s side as Vardy scored his first goal in 12 games when he snagged a assist from Timothy Castagne and passed Johnstone in the 23rd minute.
Leicester doubled their lead just three minutes later as Yuri Tielemans’ corner turned a West Brom player away and headed for Evans, who directed his first Premier League goal since December 2019.
And Brendan Rodgers’ men scored their third goal when Iheanacho hammered a cut from Vardy in the 36th minute.
It’s now 13 goals in as many appearances for Iheanacho, who is Leicester’s top scorer with 16 this season.
The second half didn’t match the opening 45 minutes, with Big Sam bringing in defender Semi Ajayi for forward Callum Robinson at the break to keep the score low.
Leicester comfortably saw the game with Iheanacho set to add a second goal to his name.
