Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho says Manchester City will fight Tottenham “to the final whistle” when the teams go head-to-head on Super Sunday. City head to White Hart Lane having seen their Premier League title bid rocked by a 3-1 home defeat to leaders Leicester City last weekend. As a result, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are six points behind the Foxes and one behind Spurs on a weekend which also sees Arsenal play host to Leicester.
And Iheanacho is in no doubt about how important Sunday’s round of fixtures could be in the title race. “We have to treat it like a cup final and give everything we have in the game,” the striker told Sky. “They have quality players and are second in the league so we have to fight them right to the final whistle. “Everyone is sad that we lost last week and we have to put that behind us and move on. History was made that day but it’s not in our mind.” Iheanacho has scored eight goals for Manchester City this season but he feels he still has lots of work to do if he is to cement his position as a front-line Premier League striker. “I need to listen to everybody and work hard,” he said. “I will try to impress everybody – the manager, the team, the fans – and to do that I have to work hard every day.”
