It was an all African affair on Saturday as the trio of Kelechi Iheanacho had and Ivory Coast superstars Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony combined to send Manchester City to the top of the Premier League on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Swansea.
Bony scored City’s opener in the first half after a dominant display from the home side before recently crowned BBC African Footballer of the Year Toure scored a late winner which had a touch from Iheanacho.
Bony had scored a 26th minute headed goal from a corner but the visitors netted a deserved equaliser on 90 minutes through Gomis, who found the top corner of the goal to give caretaker manager Alan Curtis hope of a point from the Etihad Stadium.
However, Toure helped turned things around as he had the final say with just a minute to play in added time when he curled in a shot that deflected off Iheanacho and looped over Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski into the net.
Joe Hart had a good game for City as he saved a couple of shots and headers from Swansea stars especially the impressive Gylfi Sigurdsson
