WATCH: Manchester City 3-1 Hull City
Last Updated: 09/04/17 12:03am
Manchester City ended a run of four Premier League games without a win by easing to a comfortable 3-1 victory over relegation-threatened Hull.
An own goal from Ahmed Elmohamady put the hosts ahead at the Etihad Stadium before Sergio Aguero and Fabian Delph secured three important points in the race for Champions League qualification.
Hull, who had gone into the game with confidence after successive victories, were outplayed but managed a late consolation when City's recalled goalkeeper Claudio Bravo allowed an Andrea Ranocchia shot to slip through his grasp.
Until then it had been a quiet return for the Chilean, who was dropped in January after a series of poor performances and conceding six goals from six shots faced in back-to-back games against Everton and Tottenham.
Again, Hull's goal came from their only shot on target. The criticism of the 33-year-old will continue although the 'keeper could claim his view was obscured by John Stones.
But that was the only downside after a positive display from Pep Guardiola's team. Hull were well beaten but they at least remain outside the bottom three.
