Yaya Toure contests decision to award goal to Iheanacho

14 December 2015, 16:26

London - Manchester City's Yaya Toure has insisted that he scored the winning goal in the Citizens last - gasp win against Swansea City last weekend after it was awarded to Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Ivory Coast international has claimed that the ball was heading inside the net before the Flying Eagles striker unknowingly got the last touch.

''When you see the action, the ball was going into the net,'' Yaya Toure said.

''When you shoot on target I think it is your goal because the intention was to score. We’ll see what the verdict it is but as far as I’m concerned, it’s mine!''

The identity of the goalscorer will now be decided by a panel of experts, otherwise known as the Dubious Goals Panel, though the official website of the English Premier League and Manchester City have credited the stoppage - time strike to Iheanacho.

It would be the 19 - year - old's second goal in the top - flight if the goal is awarded to him, having opened his account for this season against Crystal Palace on September 12.

The one - cap Nigeria international made his 11th appearance in the Premier League against Swansea City.
