Manchester City vs. Tottenham 'like a cup final' - Kelechi Iheanacho

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes discuss who will be heading out the Man City exit door this summer.

Kelechi Iheanacho says Manchester City have to treat Sunday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur like a cup final if they are to maintain their title challenge.

City are six points behind Leicester City after their 3-1 home defeat to the Premier League leaders last Saturday.

The Sky Blues are also a point behind second-placed Spurs and another slip-up at the Etihad this Sunday could leave them nine points adrift of the top and on the fringes of the title race.

Iheanacho knows they face another tough clash against a side that has won its last six games and thrashed City 4-1 at White Hart Lane earlier in the season.

The Nigerian striker told Sky Sports News: "We have to treat it like a cup final and give everything we have in the game. They have quality players and are second in the league so we have to fight them right to the final whistle.

"Everyone is sad that we lost last week and we have to put that behind us and move on. History was made that day but it's not in our mind."

With a squad severely hit by injuries, Iheanacho could start Sunday's game alongside Sergio Aguero.

The 19-year-old's emergence in the first team squad has been one of the highlights of the club's season and his impressive form saw City boss Manuel Pellegrini elevate him into his Champions League squad last week.

Iheanacho has eight goals this season but insists he must keep working to make himself a better player.

"I need to listen to everybody and work hard," he added. "I will try to impress everybody -- the manager, the team, the fans -- and to do that I have to work hard every day."
