Two days later and we’re still awaiting the official verdict on who opened the scoring for City in the 2015/16 season.
Yaya Toure’s strike after nine minutes against West Brom appeared to take a flick off David Silva’s boot on its way past Boaz Myhill, leaving supporters and pundits to forensically study replays for an, as yet undiscovered, definitive answer.
Was Yaya's shot going in? Did it require Silva's intervention? Was it an own goal?
See what you reckon by watching the highlights.
While uncertainty reigns, the midfield duo have taken to social media to debate the issue, trading digital blows on Twitter for ownership of the strike.
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
@YayaToure the goal is mine, thanks for the assist, I will assist you hopefully many times during the season!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂— David Silva (@21LVA) August 12, 2015
#FindSilvaPhone even trended on Twitter in Manchester as supporters weighed into this heavyweight debate.
@StatCity would certainly like an answer…
@MCFC I'd love to know because I'm waiting to update the database!— StatCity (@StatCity) August 10, 2015
While we have a look around City Football Academy for a potentially lost mobile phone, tell us: who do you think scored City’s first goal of the season?
Tweet #TeamDavid or #TeamYaya to cast your vote and we’ll see if you can settle it once and for all…
Quick, before there’s an unhealable rift in our midfield between two of the team’s star players!
