Nigeria super star,Iheanacho Will destroy Palace



With Crystal Palace in town for the League Cup, Manuel Pellegrini has the perfect opportunity to bring in some exciting young players – and resume his rivalry with Alan Pardew

Manchester City are back in League Cup action on Wednesday and it could be a tough task against Alan Pardew’s Crysta Palace.
But while Manuel Pellegrini picked a very strong side in the previous round, there’s an opportunity to rotate and bring in some exciting youngsters at the Etihad.

And with United playing at home – and Middlesbrough bringing thousands of travelling fans – we just hope plenty of City fans brave the roads and the Metrolink to see their team!

Here are five things we want to see on Wednesday…

Even if he scores 10 goals this season, I’ll still be annoyed about that poor offside call at the end of the Bournemouth match which denied Kelechi a stunning chip. So the result was way beyond doubt by that point, but that type of goal can launch a career.

The 19-year-old Nigerian barely needs any more hype around him but had that goal rightly stood it would have been two Premier League goals in 34 minutes of action.

His first, of course, came in dramatic circumstances against Crystal Palace back in September, so why not give him a run out from the start against the same opposition?

It would be harsh to criticise Pellegrini for being cautious in the derby – I praised his defensive outlook in the aftermath – but Iheanacho was only given seven minutes at Old Trafford. You felt that had he been introduced sooner, he would have given the United defence something different to deal with.

The City boss is probably right to hold Kelechi back from the limelight as much as possible, but these games are the perfect opportunity to rotate. He’s certainly ready.
