Iheanacho hails City teamwork

Kelechi Iheanacho was delighted with his side's 4-0 win over Bournemouth in their Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Kevin De Bruyne had opened the scoring for City after 15 minutes before Iheanacho netted 10 minutes later. Raheem Sterling added a third just three minutes into the second half before Ilkay Gundogan found the target with 66 minutes played.

The only real black mark on the afternoon was a red card for Nolito in the 86th minute, and after the match a beaming Iheanacho credited the result to some sublime teamwork from his side.

"It was a great performance from the team today," the Nigerian said after netting his third goal in three games. "We did really well in both the first and second half. Unfortunately, we had a red card in the final few minutes but, overall, we did well.

"I'm feeling great at the moment. 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."

Up next for Pep Guardiola's side is an English Football League Cup tie with Swansea City ahead of their next Premier League test.

"We've won this game so we'll put this behind us before focusing on Swansea," Iheanacho concluded. "We are happy we've got the win and it's now time to concentrate on the games in front of us."
