Kelechi Iheanacho has urged Manchester City to maintain their “focus” as the Premier League leaders bid to end a run of frustrating results.
City started the season with 10 straight wins under new manager Pep Guardiola. But their 1-1 draw with Southampton at Eastlands on Sunday means City, top of the table on goal difference, have now gone five games without a victory.
It was Iheanacho’s goal that spared them defeat in their English Premier League game against Southampton on Sunday.
As City head back to Old Trafford for the fourth round of the League Cup against United, Iheanacho said:
“Teams drop points in the Premier League, we dropped points as well. That is a football game, you don’t know what is going to happen when you play.
“Everyone expects high for our team but we are human beings as well. We are footballers, we can make mistakes and we can lose games.
