EPL: Guardiola singles out two Super Eagles players after Man City defeat Leicester 6-3

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has hailed the Nigerian duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman after their performances in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

City almost threw away a four-goal lead against Leicester, but went on to win 6-3 at the Etihad.

On Iheanacho’s return to Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI, he scored a goal and assisted two – one of which was Lookman’s.

Aside from his goal, Lookman’s runs kept the City backline in check. The former Everton star had five successful dribbles and won more than half of his duels.

Guardiola has now singled out the two Super Eagles forwards for their displays against his side.

“They have big quality in transition, and then they changed shape,” Guardiola said after the game.

“Vestergaard is an excellent player, and when Tielemans and Maddison can play, they have lots of quality, with Kelechi and Lookman too.”
