Iheanacho, Ideye, Anichebe Benched As City Thrash West Brom

All three Nigerian players, Kelechi Iheanacho, Brown Ideye and Victor Anichebe started from the bench on Monday night when West Brom lost their season opener 3-0 at home to Manchester City.

Anichebe however came off the bench to replace Ricky Lambert in the 74th minute as West Brom chased the game.

Iheanacho, the 18-year-old wunderkind who was very impressive for City during pre-season, did not get his senior competitive debut as anticipated as he was an unused substitute, just like Ideye.

Iheanacho still got a first though, as that was the first time he would be in a matchday squad for the City senior squad in a Premier League game.

A Yaya Toure brace in the first half and a Vincent Kompany header in the second half took the 2013/2014 Champions City to the top of the league on opening matchday.
