Today's Goal of the Day is a classic from Yaya Toure. 

Back in 2014, City travelled to the south coast looking to further cut the gap at the top to Chelsea - standing in their way were second-placed Southampton.

It was expected to be a tricky test, but the Blues showed their class, sweeping the hosts aside after the break

With only one home goal conceded all season, Saints held firm until the 51st minute when Yaya Toure scored from 20 yards before City were reduced to 10 men as Eliaquim Mangala was shown a second yellow card on 74.

But Frank Lampard (80) and the Gael Clichy (87) rounded off an impressive 3-0 win that enabled the Blues to leapfrog the Saints into second spot.

Yaya's goal was yet another crucial strike...
