Iheanacho excited about Manchester Derby
The Young Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho is really excited to be stepping in as a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who is serving a three match ban.
The 19-year old is now in line for a starting line up position as he looks to continue to impress Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola.
“Sergio’s suspension is a big loss but we have a lot of big players to turn to,” Iheanacho said as quoted by The Sun. “If I get picked I’m going to do my job. Games like this mean a lot and it doesn’t come bigger than a derby. He’s a winner and I believe he will bring success to the club. His arrival has changed the mentality of everyone because you are starting from scratch. The past means nothing and everyone is fighting hard to get a chance. It’s been very good for me. He’s one of the best managers in the world and I am learning a lot from him.”

Dazzling Rashford gives Mourinho a hard task
Talented youngster Marcus Rashford is delighted to have given Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho, a tough task in selecting the players that will feature in the upcoming Manchester derby, after his impressive display in his England U-21 debut.
The 18-year old was disappointed to not have been included in Sam Allardyce’ English national team squad but after his impressive display with the U-21 team, he may have made Allardyce regret his decision.
Rashford showed no signs of slowing down as he lead England to a 6-1 win over Norway, after scoring three impressive goals.
When asked about his hopes of featuring in the crucial fixture he said:
“As a young player that’s all you want to do. You want to make the manager make decisions about whether he wants you to play or be in the squad. Everyone is just looking forward to it so it should be a good game.”
The Red Devils secured a last minute 1-0 win over Hull City in their last league outing thanks to a late strike from Rashford.
