The young forward is massively repaying the faith manager Pep Guardiola has in him with goals to make up for the absence of Aguero to maintain City perfect start to the season.

Iheanacho raced to a pass from Raheem Sterling to glide home his third consecutive goal for Manchester City to put them 2-0 ahead and, in the process becomes the first teenager at the age of 19, to score 10 goals in the English Premier League for Man City beating the record of Mike Sheron who achieved his feat at the age of 21.

He is also the youngest African international at the age of 19 to have scored in back to back Premier League games in the history of the League.
