Goal of the Day: Toure v West Ham

More To Watch

A thunderbolt from Yaya Toure gave Manchester City the lead against West Ham in 2010.

On a day when a 3-1 win against the bottom placed Hammers saw City join Arsenal at the top of the table, our midfielder opened the scoring with a powerful strike that has become his trademark.

Collecting a cut back from Gareth Barry, Toure took the ball in his stride as he crashed a left-foot drive beyond the helpless Robert Green to put the away side ahead in sensational fashion.

The big man was on the scoresheet again in the second half, though this time in slightly more fortuitous fashion.

Collecting Nigel de Jong’s pass, he went by James Tomkins to leave himself one on one with Green. This time he was denied by the woodwork, only for the ball to ricochet into the ‘keepers’ back and into the net.
