10 out of 10 for Toure as midfielder maintains perfect Premier League penalty record for Man City

The 33-year-old converted from the spot as Pep Guardiola’s charges secured a 3-0 victory over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Boxing Day

Yaya Toure maintained his 100 per cent penalty record in the Premier League to help Manchester City record a 3-0 win over Hull City on Boxing Day.

The midfielder broke the deadlock after 72 minutes at the KCOM Stadium, converting from the spot after Andrew Robertson fouled Raheem Sterling in the penalty area.

Kelechi Iheanacho soon doubled City’s lead before Curtis Davies put the ball into his own net in the dying stages of the affair.
