Despite Manchester City 4-0 thumping of Aston Villa at the Ethiad stadium to make up ground at the top, Blues fans have voiced their disgust over the choice of Wilfred Bony ahead of Kelechi Iheanacho.
Bony copped some flak from City fans online after failing to impress, missing a couple of sitters and struggling to get hold of the ball in the 62 minutes he played before being replaced by Raheem Sterling.
A City fan, Sparkinbluefire, wrote on Twitter : “There was one man who had failure written all over him ‘WB’. Why he started in place of Iheanacho raises some serious concerns over team selection even when City are not exactly cruising in the league.”
Another fan IanLovegrove added: “Playing two up front is a plus but Bony ahead of Kelechi is ridiculous. Same old lack of imagination from Manuel Pellegrini, as always!”
Emmett also thinks the Ivorian doesn’t deserve a place in the team ahead of the Nigerian youngster.
He wrote: “Bony does nothing to deserve his spot in this team over Iheanacho. As we’ve all seen, Kelechi is miles better for us that Bony.”
Iheanacho has scored nine goals in 25 appearances in his debut season for Manchester City.
