Manchester City star David Silva trolls team-mate Yaya Toure over first West Brom goal

David Silva 3

The Spaniard is adamant that the first goal on Monday night was his.

Manchester City got their 2015-16 campaign under way in some style on Monday night, beating West Brom 3-0 in a comfortable fixture.

Yaya Toure stole the show, scoring twice in a magnificent throwback performance – with Vincent Kompany getting the other.

Well, at least Toure thought he had scored twice. There was no doubt about his second, which he curled into the top corner of Boaz Myhill’s net. However, the first goal was a low strike which definitely took a deflection off Craig Dawson, but might have caught team-mate David Silva on the way through as well.

The Spaniard through a flick at the ball and whilst at first it did not seem to touch him, in super slow-mo you can see contact.

It now seems as though Silva is adamant that the goal was his, seemingly suggesting a resolution has come to pass on the goal.

He posted this Tweet earlier today…

It has earlier been suggested that Silva and Toure would arm wrestle to see who picked up the goal but somehow it is doubtful that Silva bested Toure in a test of strength.

But regardless Silva maintains it was his and it seems that is now the case.
