‘I’m Feeling Great at the Moment’ – Iheanacho Roars
Iheanacho, 19, got a goal and an assist as Pep Guardiola’s men cruised to a resounding 4-0 defeat of Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
It was his third goal on the stretch for the Citizens and fourth in as many games for club and country.
After putting in another good shift in place of the suspended Sergio Aguero, the forward saluted his team’s commanding display against the Cherries, while admitting his game has been raised a couple bars, Goal writes.
“It’s been a great performance in those three games, I think I’m improving.
“I’ll keep working hard every day and every game and if I get my opportunity, I’ll take it.”
The former Fifa U17 MVP said it’s back to work for the next game against Swansea as this isn’t the time to party.
“We’ve won this game so we’ll put this behind us before focusing on Swansea,” he continued.
“We are happy we’ve got the win and it’s now time to concentrate on the games in front of us.
“I’m feeling invincible. We’ve got a 100% record and I’m happy with our performance, the team, the management, the coach and everyone.
“We’re really working hard and we’ll get there.”
Meanwhile, Nigerians are quite pleased with the teenager’s performances thus far…
Kelechi Iheanacho will win the African footballer of the year. In the next 3years. He's grown from a talent into exceptional.

Iheanacho is just silencing this Rashford debate on a daily.
He's scored in advance. Incase, Rashford scores tomorrow.
