SUMMARY: Hull City 0-3 Manchester City

Hull City's impotence in attack came home to roost once more as they passed up more opportunities to score a goal against a woefully flat Manchester City this Boxing Day - and paid the price heavily late in the match, as they were unfairly handed a drubbing on home soil.

Another spot of bother...

Title contenders the visitors maybe, but on the first 70 minutes evidence, Manchester City looked everything but. A confident home side created the better chances and defended at relative ease given the million upon millions lavished on their opponents. Indeed, the Tigers had the better chances restricting their guests to just two long range chances, as they enjoyed the best of the attacking play and forcing more corners.

In the second half the hosts stepped up a gear suggesting they could actually get something from the game. City thought they'd snatched the lead when Michael Dawson's header was somehow cleared off the the line from Bacary Sagna. Substitutions were made and the influential Tom Huddlestone was replaced. Minutes later, without the defensive protection, Andy Robertson's clumsy foul allowed Toure to tuck in a spot kick for a scarcely deserved lead, while Iheanacho and a Curtis Davies own goal completed an unlikely 0-3 score.
