Kelechi Iheanacho combined pace and composure to round the opposition 'keeper and calmly slot home to make it 4-0 to Manchester City on Stoke’s last visit to the Etihad Stadium.

Latching on to Wilfried Bony’s pass, his first touch took him clear of the Potters’ defence and he was ice cool to deceive ‘keeper Jakob Haugaard before stroking the ball into an empty net.

The young Nigerian had already displayed his predatory instincts for his first and City’s third and the final goal sealed an emphatic 4-0 victory, with man of the match Kelechi the star of the show.

His brace ensured - at that stage of the season - the 20-year-old had netted seven times in eight starts as he demonstrated his potential in his first full season.

City XI: Hart; Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Kolarov; Navas, Fernando, Toure, Silva; Iheanacho, Aguero
