But Yaya Toure proved a late, late saviour for Manuel Pellegrini's side when he cut inside three defenders and curled a finish that bounced off Iheanacho's back and beyond goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. The win puts City top of the Premier League on goal difference, ahead of title rivals Leicester, who face Chelsea on Monday night.
Ighalo Continues Hot Streak
Odion Ighalo's 10th goal of the season handed promoted Watford a third successive Premier League victory and plunged Sunderland deeper into relegation trouble.

Watford controlled the game's opening moments, and took an early lead after just four minutes when Allan Nyom picked out Ighalo from the right, before the Nigerian finished past Sunderland goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon. The Hornets missed two good chances to extend their lead as Pantilimon kept out an Almen Abdi effort, while Ighalo tried his luck in a difficult position, only for the former Manchester City man to deny the striker in the bottom corner.
Ighalo could have wrapped up the victory with a second goal before the final whistle, as Troy Deeney led a swift counter attack before picking out Ighalo, only for the goalscorer to be denied by Pantilimon.
