Henry: Why did no Man City players celebrate with Iheanacho?

The former Arsenal striker found it “weird” that the Nigerian’s team-mates were muted in their reaction to his equalising goal in their 2-1 defeat against Tottenham on Sunday

Thierry Henry has questioned the togetherness within the Manchester City squad by pointing out the lack of a celebration after Kelechi Iheanacho’s equalising goal against Tottenham.

The Nigerian forward cancelled out Harry Kane’s second-half penalty but Christian Eriksen scored a late winning goal for Spurs to earn the visitors a crucial three points.

The defeat sees City remain six points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City and Henry believes the muted way in which Manuel Pellegrini’s players reacted to drawing level was telling.

“I know you have to go and get the ball back [to ensure a quick restart with the score level at 1-1 at the time] but no one went to celebrate with Iheanacho,” Henry told Sky Sports.

“That’s something that, I don’t know… you scored a goal, go and celebrate with the guy. ‘Let’s go, get the ball back’. No one went to celebrate with him. He was in the corner there.
