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 19-year-old striker doubled the lead for the City, tucking away a David Silva pass to give Pep Guardiola's men a comfortable victory.

That effort means Iheanacho is now scoring a goal every 96 minutes in the Premier League - the best goal ratio for any player with 10 or more in the league's history. 

In comparison, fellow City striker Sergio Aguero has scored his 112 Premier League goals at a rate of one every 107 minutes and former Arsenal ace Thierry Henry scored his 175 Premier League goals at a rate of one per 122 minutes.

Iheanacho's 12th goal for Man City came from just his 19th shot in 38 league appearances - and is all the more impressive considering the Nigerian only made his top-flight debut last season under Manuel Pellegrini.
