Yaya Toure felt Manchester City’s second goal was key to securing three points after the Citizens edged to victory over Swansea.

Fernandinho broke the deadlock at the Liberty Stadium with a long-range strike before Swans striker Wilfried Bony levelled on the stroke of half-time.

It was a key goal for us

Toure restored City’s lead with a deflected 58th-minute strike before Aleksandar Kolarov cemented the win with a brilliant goal.

Ivory Coast international Bony netted a late consolation, and his compatriot Toure talked up the significance of his strike in the New Year’s Day encounter.

“I think it was a key goal for us,” Toure told Sky Sports News.

“I should have scored a goal earlier but [my goal] was a key one for us. Swansea are a good side, but we deserved the win today.

“Of course [Aleksandar Kolarov’s] goal was a team movement [to make it 3-1], and he has taken the ball 50 yards so it was it unbelievable. It was a fantastic goal as well. It was amazing.”
