Toure, Iheanacho Combine To Send Man City Top

Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho and Ivory Coast superstars Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony combined to send Manchester City to the top of the Premier League on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Swansea.
Bony scored City’s opener in the first half after a dominant display from the home side.

BBC African Footballer of the Year Toure then scored a late winner.

Bony had scored a 26th minute headed goal from a corner but Bafemti Gomis scored the equaliser in the 89th minute when he latched onto a pass from midfield to unleash a powerful shot from an acute angle.

Toure though had the final say with just a minute to play in added time when he curled in a shot that deflected off Iheanacho and looped over Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski into the net.

Joe Hart had a good game for City as he saved a couple of shots and headers from Swansea stars especially the impressive Gylfi Sigurdsson.
