Iheanacho benefiting from training with Man City stars

10 September 2015, 15:14

London - Kelechi Iheanacho is impressed with Crystal Palace's blistering start to the new Premier League season and has predicted a difficult game when Manchester City square up against The Eagles at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

While Manuel Pellegrini's charges have a hundred percent record going into that tie, the Londoners are not far behind and the 2 -1 loss to Arsenal on game week two has been their only blip so far after four rounds.

''Crystal Palace have had a really good start so it will not be an easy game,'' Kelechi Iheanacho said to Man City's official website, mcfc.co.uk.

''They're doing great, they're all doing their jobs and there's always a great atmosphere at Selhurst Park – it will be hard but I think we can win.''

The 18 - year - old Iheanacho has made only one cameo appearance for The Citizens in the Premier League but the experience of training with some of the top stars in the world is something the teenager cherishes.

''David Silva is a great player, a top player – high level with a lot of experience. I'm learning new things every day in training – it’s been a dream come true playing with these players.

''With Sergio, Yaya, David and Sami – it can only improve you as a player to play with these guys,'' Kelechi Iheanacho said.
