Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho secures three points for Man City

 18-yr-old , Nigerian attacker,  Kelechi Iheanacho was the super sub who came off the bench to score an injury-time goal to seal Manchester City’s win against Crystal Palace.

Iheanacho who had been on the field for less than a minute when he stabbed home after Alex McCarthy had fumbled Samir Nasri’s shot.

It was tough luck on a Crystal Palace side who had matched the league leaders for until the 90th minute.

Palace, who had started the day in second place, looked set to claim a point before Iheanacho finished from close range shortly after appearing as an 89th-minute substitute to secure City’s fifth successive win.

It was only the 18-year-old Nigerian’s second senior appearance and drew the attention away from an impressive debut for Kevin De Bruyne, who arrived from Wolfsburg in a £54 million ($83.3 million, 73.5 million euros) move shortly before the end of the transfer window.
