London - Kelechi Iheanacho was on song on Saturday as Manchester
City beat Norwich 3-0 in their third-round FA Cup clash.
The Nigeria international scored Manchester City’s second
goal in the 31st minute after Argentine’s Sergio Aguero had opened scoring for
the Manuel Pellegrini side 15 minutes earlier.
Aguero surged past Sebastien Bassong, sidestepped Russell
Martin and poked in a shot to put the visitors ahead.

He then teased the home defence before laying the ball off
for Iheanacho to side-foot in. City were dominant and Kevin de Bruyne jinked
his way to goal before powering in a low shot for their third.
Norwich and the visitors made seven changes each but, while
Pellegrini's team retained the look of a strong side, the Canaries struggled to
cope. Conceding an early goal did not help and the second for the visitors left
the Carrow Road crowd almost silent as their team offered them little to cheer.
Norwich showed little sign of being able to mount a
comeback, with their best chance coming when a Graham Dorrans shot was palmed
wide by visiting keeper Willy Caballero.For
