Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench on Sunday to score for Manchester City in a top English Premier League contest, but the goal was not enough to secure the high-spending team a win over Tottenham Hotspur or even secure them a draw. Spurs won the match played at the Etihad Stadium 2-1 to move to second place on the table behind Leicester while dimming the chances of the Manchester team of laying their hands on the trophy.
The goal from the young Nigerian had brought back City into the game in the 74th minute but Tottenham asserted their title credentials and dealt a blow to City’s hopes as Christian Eriksen’s late strike sealed the victory.
“I’m disappointed because I thought we were better than Tottenham, really they didn’t have any chances to score until the end when we took more risks, we lost the ball and they scored the second goal,” City manager Manuel Pellegrini told Sky Sports.
