David Silva credited with scoring Man City's first goal rather than Yaya Toure
David Silva has been credited with scoring Manchester City's first goal against West Brom on Monday after it was initially awarded to Yaya Toure.
Toure's shot in the ninth minute deflected off of Silve before rolling between the legs of defender Craig Dawson and into the net.
The Ivorian seemed to expect the panel to give the goal to Silva, as he tweeted on Monday:
Me and @21LVA will have an arm wrestle to settle who scored the first goal!! ������ Hope you guys enjoyed my second! ����- Yaya Touré (@YayaToure) August 10, 2015
Toure would not be left empty-handed, however, as he also scored in the 24th minute, and Man City went on to win 3-0.
