Frank Lampard just can't stop scoring for Man City
The former Chelsea man scored the final goal in their 4-2 win over Hull.

Hull City 2-4 Manchester City

EDIN DZEKO SCORED a brace for the second time this week with Frank Lampard also getting in on the act as Manchester City snatched a breathless 4-2 Premier League triumph at Hull City.

Winless in three league outings heading into the match, Manuel Pellegrini’s men were simply irresistible during the opening stages at the KC Stadium as Sergio Aguero and Dzeko gave them a deserved 2-0 lead after 11 minute.

But Hull battled back relentlessly, overrunning their opponents in midfield and finding extended joy down the flanks.

Eliaquim Mangala, who so impressed on his Manchester City debut versus Chelsea last Sunday, was the main victim of Hull’s ambition – the centre-back heading into his own net before fouling Abel Hernandez in the penalty area for the same player to level the contest in the 32nd minute from the spot.

Yaya Toure hit the upright with a brilliant long-range effort after half-time, leaving it to Dzeko – who netted twice in the 7-0 League Cup demolition of Sheffield Wednesday during midweek – to restore the champions’ lead before Frank Lampard came off the bench to score for the fourth time in as many appearances for his new club.

Here are the goals:
