Kelechi Iheanacho has best goal record in Premier League history
Kelechi Iheanacho has the best goals-to-minutes ratio of any player in Premier League history following his strike in Manchester City’s 3-0 win at Hull City on Boxing Day.
The young striker doubled the lead of Pep Guardiola’s men at the KCOM Stadium, tucking away David Silva’s delivery to help his side to victory in a hard-fought encounter.
This means Iheanacho has now scored a goal every 96 minutes, an impressive achievement given this is only his second season in the English top-flight having made his debut under Manuel Pellegrini last term.
96 – Kelechi Iheanacho has the best minutes per goal ratio of any player in PL history (min. 10 goals), scoring every 96 minutes. Sharp.

The 20-year-old has also remarkably netted 12 Premier League goals from just 19 shots on target in over 38 games.
Man City are seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, who are on a 12-game winning streak that has seen them sprint clear from other title contenders.
