Hull City 0-2 Man City Highlights
Ten-man Manchester City recovered from Vincent Kompany’s early dismissal to edge out Hull City and move up to second in the Premier League table.
Captain Kompany saw red for bundling over Nikica Jelavic as the Croatian ran towards goal inside 10 minutes.
But David Silva’s superb strike settled the nerves and Pablo Zabaleta almost made it 2-0 when his shot hit the bar.
The Tigers had plenty of possession but created little and Edin Dzeko sealed the win late on with a cool low finish.
