Silva credited with ‘Toure’s goal’….

David Silva and Yaya Toure

After a bout of fun Twitter banter between Yaya Toure and team-mate David Silva on Wednesday over who scored Manchester City’s opening goal in Monday’s 3-0 win over West Brom, it appears that the Premier League’s goal accreditation panel has made the decision for them. Yaya Toure had initially been credited with the goal, but now Premier League has twitted “GOAL ACCREDITATION PANEL @MCFC’s 1st goal against West Brom was in fact a @21LVA goal and has not been credited to @YayaToure” meaning the Silva has the goal. During the said match, a Toure shot appeared to take a slight deflection off David Silva before going through defender Craig Dawson’s legs and trickling over the line. This verdict means that Silva has score City’s opening goal of the season for the past three years!
