Manchester City get back to winning ways

The Spaniard's first season in England has been far from smooth sailing with a Champions League qualification spot not yet secure, but his side's second goal during a 3-1 victory over Hull on Saturday showed why many remain so excited by his presence in the English Premier League.

Hull kept the home side at bay for a while in the first half but Ahmed Elmohamady turned the ball into his own goal from a risky low cross from Jesus Navas in the 31st minute to open the scoring for Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 shortly after halftime following a jinking run by Raheem Sterling, his 10th goal in his last 10 appearances for City.

Hull pulled one back late on through Italian defender Andrea Ranocchia, with a shot that recalled goalkeeper Claudio Bravo should have saved.

Two points is nothing with 21 to play for and seven games remaining and Hull have to make sure that gap becomes at least three points, if not four given our now tied goal difference.

Silva set up his team to absorb City pressure and then cause problems on the counter-attack, which they did at times, without causing Bravo too many difficulties for most of the match.

"We missed two penalties and an amount of chances".

Pep Guardiola has promised that he will "definitely" do better next season but insists he has "enjoyed" his first year in charge of Manchester City.

Confident she'd won the battle, and in true diva fashion, she dropped the mic and then forced Corden to pick it up for her. Arguing his point, the funnyman said: "They didn't have Instagram - they just had sass, voice, songs".

Despite the defeat, Hull remained two points clear of the relegation zone, as its chief relegation-threatened rival Swansea also lost at West Ham.

The Chile global was recalled in goal for his first Premier League appearance since January 21, but all he had to do in the first half was punch away one cross from Kamil Grosicki.

"I worked very hard for that one opportunity and within the conditions that we available to me".

"We needed a win".

It's not an easy start with Manchester City this weekend but the run in does feature winnable games.

"At the end of the season we will talk for sure, but at the moment we are all focussed on our goal".

"Manchester City controlled the rest of the game".
