Man City boss Hughes delighted with Robinho away performance

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes was delighted with their away win at Everton - and the goal scoring performance of Robinho.

"Robinho has had criticism of his performances away from home, unjustified on occasions, but I thought he was outstanding today," said Hughes.

"His growing relationship in his play with Stephen Ireland, I thought they were both outstanding.

"Thankfully that away win is here now. We've played okay in some games and today I thought it was a good, solid Premier League performance.

"I changed it a bit today with Nigel De Jong and Vincent Kompany asked to sit in there and give us a shield in front and I think that helped us."
