The teenager has scored twice in three games while Sergio Aguero has served his ban for elbowing West Ham's Winston Reid.
"Of course we can play together," said Iheanacho. “We did it last season and linked up and it was very good, and a good experience for me.
“I will be happy if I can play alongside him again this season.
“Of course Sergio is back and he is a great player, so the manager has to choose the team that is going to start.
“It has been a good opportunity for me, I am happy, I am going to keep working hard to help the team get where they want."
