Thierry Henry has raised doubts about the unity in the Manchester City squad by pointing out the lack of a celebration after Iheanacho’s equalizer 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 means City are six points off the Premier League summit after losing two consecutive home league matches for the first time since December 2008, and have lost ground to Arsenal and Tottenham, who are in third and second respectively.

“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.”

“I think Vincent Kompany went with him and someone else but that’s it. Maybe I’m reading too much between the lines about that Man City team, but no one went to celebrate with him, that’s a bit weird.”
