Video : Kelechi Iheanacho scores as Manchester City beat Palace (Highlights)


2034Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first senior goal after Samir Nasri’s shot was saved. After a scrappy first half, Jesus Navas shot wide of an empty net for City after rounding keeper Alex McCarthy. A well-organised Palace came closest when Dwight Gayle volleyed wide.

Sergio Aguero limped out with a knee injury, three days ahead of Juventus’s Champions League visit.

Club-record signing Kevin de Bruyne was brought on in his place as a first-half substitute, with managers Manuel Pellegrini and Alan Pardew having a heated argument over the incident. Palace defender Scott Dann received a yellow card for the late challenge on Argentine Aguero as City spent a large part of the match struggling to create offensively.
