London - Kelechi Iheanacho was obviously the only forward in
blue on the pitch as he scored twice in Manchester City’s 4-2 loss to
Southampton in the English Premier League on Sunday.
Shane Long had opened scoring in the 25th minute before Senegalese
footballer Sadio Mane doubled the score three minutes later. But Iheanacho
pulled one back with one minute to the break.
After the break, Mane completed his hat-trick in the 57th
and 68th minutes before the Nigerian reduced the deficit for Manchester City in
the 78th minute.
