Kelechi Iheanacho’s fifth minute goal at Swansea City was all Manchester City needed to edge past rivals Manchester United to the fourth UEFA Champions League ticket in the EPL on Sunday.

It was his 14th goal in all competitions in his debut season in the EPL.

Nigeria starlet Iheanacho scoffed several other chances therafter, so too Sergio Aguero, as City held on to draw with Swansea in Manuel Pellegrini’s last game in charge at The Etihad.

City finished on 66 points and even though Manchester United home game against Bournemouth was not played because of security concerns, this tally was enough for City to clinch a Champions League place next season at the expense of their crosstown rivals.
