Man City 3-1 Hull - Outclassed but careless too

City overcame Hull City 3-1 thanks to an own-goal from Ahmed Elmohamady and further strikes from Sergio Aguero and Fabian Delph.

Then he was part of a beautifully worked passing move for the second, which ended with Sterling darting to the byline and cutting back for Sergio Aguero to squeeze in City's 100th goal of the season.

Recalled goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was again under fire as Andrea Ranocchia's weak effort trickled past him, but Delph said: "It was a team failure".

City now enjoy a seven-point lead over fifth-placed Arsenal and sixth-placed Manchester United, although both teams have two games in hand to reduce that deficit.

"With our build up Claudio is the best goalkeeper in the world with Ter Stegen and Manuel Neuer in the build-up, with the feet, and he help us a lot to create good build-up".

Navas hasn't done much wrong in the past three games when he's been up against Arsenal, Chelsea and Hull - but we'll have to wait to find out. 'If our second goal was a good example, that was a bad example of what has happened to us in our penalty area'.

The Chile keeper has now failed to save any of the last seven shots he has faced in the league.

Bayern Munich's Jérôme Boateng believes critics of Pep Guardiola should wait until next season before judging the Spaniard's impact at Manchester City, allowing him time to implement his methods and transform his squad. It is not about having the quality to defend, it is about the mentality. I believed that when I arrived here and I have tried to pass this on to my players.

It was only Hull's eighth away league goal of the season, and they have collected just one point from their last 14 games on the road.

"One thing David will have done is change the way Man City fans look at football", Kompany said. We didn't have a good performance this afternoon.

The Tigers responded well to going behind and had a couple of chances to equalise late in the first half when Oumar Niasse poked his chance wide before Kamil Grosicki curled an effort just wide of the bottom corner.

"Manchester City deserved to win the game and their second goal soon after half time was the key".
