Man City boss Pellegrini happy with matchwinner Negredo: That's why we signed him

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was happy to see Alvaro Negredo on the scoresheet in victory over Hull City.

Negredo, signed from Sevilla for £20million this summer, has made a positive impression at City, having a goal disallowed against Newcastle, finding the target at Cardiff and then adding his latest effort against Hull.

Pellegrini said: "I expect from Alvaro Negredo exactly what we are seeing every time he plays.

"I know how good a striker he is. With Alvaro and Edin (Dzeko) we have two very good strikers and we need both of them."
