With Ivory Coast international Wilfried Bony definitely out of the Manchester City squad for their Premier League clash against Watford due to injury, Kelechi Iheanacho is expected to be the main beneficiary.
The Citizens coach Manuel Pellegrini confirmed as much in his pre – match conference, stating that the Flying Eagles star is in the squad list.
“For tomorrow we have three young players in our squad, because we have a few players who are injured so we have Pablo Maffeo, Patrick Roberts and Kelechi in the squad list,” Manuel Pellegrini told mcfc.co.uk.
The 18 – year – old Iheanacho has made each of the 18 – man squad announced by Pellegrini for City’s first three games of the new season but is yet to make his official debut.
In the last two games in the EPL, Bony replaced Agüero in the closing stages.[post_ad]
