Iheanacho grabs victory for Manchester City/ Kelechi Iheanacho

Sensational Nigerian striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, was on target on Saturday as Manchester City defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 to maintain their 100 percent start of the season.

The scintillating forward came off the bench in the 89th minute and consequently scored in the 90th minute to grab a well fought victory for the Citizens.

In another development, Wolfsburg record signing, De bruyne made his debuts for Manuel Pallegrini's side after their ace man, Sergio Aguero was withdrawn due to an injury 24 minutes into the game.

However, it was the 18-year-old Nigerian who converted from close range shortly after coming on as an 89th minute replacement  for Wilfred Bony to secure the needed three points for his team.

City suffered a huge blow when their playmaker, David Silva and Raheem Sterling were sidelined due to an injury.

With the win, City now sits five points clear of Arsenal and 11 points ahead of Jose Mourinho's struggling Chelsea at the Premier League summit.
