Former Man City man Iheanacho’s late penalty meant Pep Guardiola’s men ran out of time to get back into the game, giving Leicester City a 1-0 win. Man City were without much of their usual starting XI, including some key players but still managed to field an impressive team at Wembley.

 

The first half didn’t have much between the two sides but saw two of the best chances fall for Vardy, who was unable to convert from close range. Harvey Barnes, who was making his first appearance since February after having been out with an injury, impressed on the left for Leicester.

Manchester City came out in the second half with a lot more urgency and intent but were ultimately unsuccessful in finding the back of the net. The biggest highlight for Cityzens, however, would be the introduction of the new £100m man on the 65th minute mark, which was met with huge shouts of approval. 

 

With two minutes left, Nathan Ake clumsily brought down Iheanacho inside the box. The Nigerian, who had come on as a substitute, kept his calm and converted from the spot to seal the win for The Foxes.
