Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench to score as Manchester City moved to second place on the Premier League table after a 3-0 win at Hull City.

Iheanacho was brought on in the second half and doubled City lead in the 78th minute, when he finished off a superb attacking play with an assist by David Silva.

The 20-year-old Nigeria international has now scored four goals in the league in a dozen appearances.

He fired eight league goals last season.

Cote d'Ivoire star and man of the match Yaya Toure broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after 72 minutes, Iheanacho followed up with the second goal six minutes later before Curtis Davies put the ball through his own net deep into stoppage time.

City have now climbed to second spot on 39 points, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.

Hull City are stuck at the basement of the table on 12 points.
