Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure was delighted with his goal in victory over Newcastle United.

Toure struck from a free-kick in the 4-0 win.

"I have been practising my free-kicks for four years now!" he told City's website. "But I think I got lucky on this occasion. The shot was perfect, so I am very happy.

"I hope I can continue to score important goals for the team and I think this year is going to be a good one for us."
