Nigeria international, Kelechi Iheanacho, is very hopeful that he could increase his goal tally for the season when his team, Manchester City, takes on Crystal Palace in one of the weekend games in the English Premier League.
Now third on the log, City will be playing away to Crystal Palace this Saturday.
With two goals and two assists in just 150 minutes of football, Kelechi Iheanacho on Man City’s official website admits that he loves playing against Crystal Palace and would relish being given a chance this weekend again.
Speaking of his record against the Eagles, Kelechi said: “They are very strong and have very good wingers so they will believe they can win this game.
“We have to be careful, respect them and expect this to be a very difficult match.
“Crystal Palace will always be a special game for me because I scored my first goal against them and if I play on Saturday, I hope to score another against them.”
Iheanacho, who returned from duty with Nigeria earlier this week, has bagged 18 goals from just 16 starts in all competitions – an incredible record – and has appeared as a sub on 31 occasions.
He also has 11 goals from 10 Premier League starts as well as four in seven matches for Nigeria – it seems the one thing that is guaranteed is that there will be plenty more goals to come from the youngster in the coming years.
It was against Palace that Iheanacho first burst to the Premier League scene in August of last year, replacing Wilfried Bony on 89 minutes and then scoring the only goal of the game 54 seconds later.
