Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho believes Manchester City’s did everything possible to defeat Stoke City in Wednesday’s goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium.
Iheanacho came on as a substitute in the second half but couldn’t change the composure of the match despite creating some half chances as the Potters were solid at the back.The result cost City the chance to move to second in the table and left them 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.
‘As a striker you need to take chances. We need to focus to put the chance (away) if it comes. It came and of course I missed it, but I focus on the next one – that is going to count.’
‘I think we didn’t do anything wrong. I think we really worked hard but they really stood up because they are a good team as well. They are strong, they really fight.
‘We fought to the end and to get a draw was unfortunate but I think we focus on the next games.’
‘I think we believe in ourselves and what we can do as well as other teams. Chelsea are doing well as well but if we keep this standard, keep working hard, I think we will get there.’
Iheanacho, who has scored seven goals this season but not started a game since January 2, said: ‘We are happy to have everyone around. On my part, any time I am in I need to give 100 per cent because everyone is important in the team.
