Iheanacho benched as Aguero rescues point for City against Liverpool

Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute as Sergio Aguero’s goal kept Manchester City above Liverpool in the Premier League as they fought back to earn a pulsating 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

After a goalless first-half finished with a flurry of chances, Liverpool went ahead when James Milner coolly scored a penalty following Gael Clichy’s foul on Roberto Firmino. But Aguero converted Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant centre on 68 minutes.

Then De Bruyne rattled the post and Aguero blasted over for City late on, while Liverpool’s Adam Lallana scuffed a fantastic opportunity when he was unmarked six yards out late on. The draw leaves Man City third, one point and a place above Liverpool having played one match more.

Ultimately, it’s two points dropped for the Citizens. City stay third, two points behind Spurs and 12 points behind Chelsea. The Blues are five points ahead of fifth-place Manchester United who have played one game less.
