Iheanacho seals Champions League spot for Man City

Kelechi Iheanacho was on song as Manchester City effectively secured a Champions League place for next season with a 1-1 draw against Swansea in the English Premier League on Sunday.

City will almost certainly finish in fourth place — and above rival Manchester United.

In manager Manuel Pellegrini’s last league match in charge, City went ahead when Nigeria striker Iheanacho capitalized on Sergio Aguero’s shot that rebounded favorably.

Swansea drew level on the stroke of the interval when Jordan Ayew’s free kick took a deflection off Fernando, before wrong-footing goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Man United, whose match was abandoned after a suspect package was found at Old Trafford before its match against Bournemouth, can mathematically overtake City with a double-digit win when its match is rescheduled.

Swansea finished an impressive 12th.
