Iheanacho scored his ninth goal in nine domestic cup starts, dating back to his time at Manchester City, in the hard-fought 1-0 win against Brentford.
But Iheanacho admitted Brentford gave them a fright, but was delighted to have emerged victorious.
“We are happy to get the win today and go to the next round,” Iheanacho told the BBC.
“There was a lot of pressure from them.
“It is very important as a team and as a group of players. We worked really hard to the end and stood our ground. I was a bit nervous because they kept coming. We defended well and in the end we got the win and are through.”
