The Nigerian striker was named in place of the suspended Sergio Aguero and justified his manager’s decision with the winning goal at Old Trafford.
Guardiola had been left to weigh up his attacking options after Aguero was handed a three-match ban for an elbow on West Ham defender Winston Reid last month.
And he chose 19-year-old Iheanacho as his centre forward ahead of other contenders Nolito, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.
After the 2-1 win, he said: “He was the only striker we had in that moment.
“I thought about many other options – but I thought in the beginning to show to my players that I came to win the game.”
