In his second appearance for Manchester City, Iheanacho ran to a rebound in the 90th minute to tap in the only goal at Crystal Palace. That goal however secured all three points and maintained a 100% start to the season for Man City.

Manuel Pellegrini having seen the development of Kelechi Iheanacho kept faith in him after striker, Edin Dzeko left The club for Italian club, Roma.

"He's a very important player for us. He's just 18 and started working with our squad last season, but he was unlucky and had a big injury in the last three months of the season," Pellegrini said to AFP.

"This year he started pre-season with the squad and will be a very important player for the future."

"He's one of the reasons I didn't bring another striker in when we sold Edin Dzeko. He deserves that chance. I told him to go and score a goal."
