Nigeria youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, was voted Man of the Match as Manchester City spanked Crystal Palace 5-1 at the Etihad on Wednesday in the English Capital One Cup.
The 19-year-old scored once and made a couple in an excellent full debut as the Citizens booked a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Iheanacho teed up Kevin De Bruyne to tap in City’s second late in the first half after Wilfried Bony had headed the hosts ahead after 22 minutes.
He then made it 3-0 with a composed finish – his second of the season – his first coming against same opposition in the League in September, before Yaya Toure converted from the penalty spot.
Damien Delaney grabbed a late consolation for Palace but it was City who had the final say as Iheanacho set up 17-year-old Manu Garcia to score the fifth in injury-time.
Nathaniel Clyne handed Jurgen Klopp his first victory as Liverpool coach as the Kopp edged AFC Bournemouth 1-0 at Anfield.
While at Old Trafford, Manchester United suffered a shock exit at the hands of Championship side, Middlesbrough, losing 4-1 on penalties.
With the game tied at 0-0 after extra-time, the game headed straight to penalty kick. The visitors scored all four spot kicks just as Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Ashley Young all missed for the Red Devil.
