Fatawu Issahaku’s Hat-Trick Powers Leicester City to Victory Over Southampton

Ghanaian winger Fatawu Issahaku showcased his skill with a stunning hat-trick as Leicester City secured a dominant 5-0 victory over Southampton on Tuesday night. The win puts Leicester on the brink of promotion to the Premier League, needing just one win from their final two matches against Preston or Blackburn to seal their return.

Issahaku opened the scoring for Leicester with a composed low strike in the first half, highlighting the Foxes’ dominance over a struggling Southampton side. Despite Southampton’s improved performance in the second half, they were unable to match Leicester’s clinical finishing.

Wilfred Ndidi doubled Leicester’s lead with a powerful header, before Issahaku scored his second goal with a sensational strike. He then turned provider, setting up Jamie Vardy for his 18th goal of the season. Vardy returned the favor, assisting Issahaku for his third goal, completing his hat-trick in style.

The victory sees Leicester move four points clear at the top of the table, keeping their hopes of reaching 100 points this season alive. Meanwhile, Southampton remains in fourth place, still in contention for a promotion play-off spot but needing results to go their way in the final matches of the season.
