Iheanacho breaks several records as City win Manchester Derby

Kelechi Iheanacho’s tap-in proved to be the winner, as Manchester City defeated rivals, Manchester United, 2-1 at Old Trafford to continue their perfect start under Pep Guardiola.

Kevin De Bruyne had already opened scoring, after he latched onto Iheanacho’s flicked header and finished coolly past David De Gea.

It was the Belgian’s effort that came off the bar, for Iheanacho to double City’s advantage.

The goal means that he becomes the first Nigerian to appear and score in the Derby. The 19-year-old also became the youngest ever player to score in the fixture.

Iheanacho is expected to get more playing time, with Sergio Aguero still suspended for their next two domestic games.
