Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho came off the substitutes bench to score his seventh goal of the season after seven weeks on the sidelines for Manchester City as they qualified for the quarter-finals of the English FA Cup with a 5-1 victory over Huddersfield Town 5-1 in a replay fixture at the Etihad stadium on Wednesday night.
A brace from Sergio Aguero and goals from Leroy Sane, Pablo Zabaleta and Iheanacho sealed a comfortable win for Manchester City after Harry Bunn had shot the visitors into the lead.
The Super Eagles forward, who has been called up for this month’s international friendlies against Burkina Faso and Senegal, replaced Sergio Aguero in the 79th minute of the encounter and made it 5-1 for the hosts.
A mistake by goalkeeper Claudio Bravo allowed former City youngster Harry Bunn to fire the Terriers into a surprise early lead at the Etihad Stadium but the hosts roared back with three goals before half-time.
Leroy Sane equalised before an Aguero penalty and Pablo Zabaleta effort put Pep Guardiola’s men firmly in command. Aguero and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho completed the job in the second half.
City will now play Middlesbrough for a place in the semi-finals while Huddersfield, whose manager David Wagner was beginning a two-match touchline ban, can focus on their promotion challenge.
