Manchester City's 18 year-old Striker Kelechi Iheanacho spoke to about the Manchester Derby and other subjects.

On the Derby:

"I haven't thought that much about it because I've never played in a Manchester derby before and I don't know what it feels like so for me, it would just be a normal game and I wouldn't play my football any differently,"

On Manchester United's Anthony Martial:

"I think Martial is a very good striker - he's a young lad and the same age as I am, 19. He's very composed in front of goal and he will be a threat if we allow him time and space in the final third.

"I don't think he has any pressure on him because all he needs to do is play football and score goals and that's what he's doing at the moment."

On Wilfried Bony:

"Wilfried is a very good striker who is strong and intelligent and he talks to me all the time and advises me. We sit together in the dressing room and he's like a big brother to me.

On his development:

"As for me and my own progress, I just have to keep working hard in training every day - with hard work I think I can go all the way so that's what I'll keep doing and hopefully I can do great things for City in the coming years."
