Manchester City brightened their chances of qualifying for next season Uefa Champions League with a 5-0 win over Crystal Palace at the Etihad.

Goals from David Silva, Vincent Kompany, Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi helped the Citizen to a big win, with Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho playing the last six minutes of the game.

Iheanacho came in as a substitute for Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus, with six minutes left to ‎play in the game, which helped City move up to third place ahead of Liverpool, although they have played a game more.

The Nigerian is heavily linked with a move away from the team in the summer after falling down the pecking order following the arrival of Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.

Already top teams in Europe particularly Germany are queuing up for his services, but as exclusively reported by this portal, Hoffeinheim are currently ahead of the teams chasing his signature.
