West Bromwich - Yaya Toure has scored twice as Manchester City found a cure to its problems away from home by beating West Bromwich Albion 3-2 in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Sergio Aguero put third-place City ahead in the ninth minute at The Hawthorns, setting Manuel Pellegrini's team on its way to only a second away win that keeps it six points behind leader Arsenal.

The only blot for City on a night that saw captain Vincent Kompany return from 10 games out through injury were the late goals they conceded, with goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon turning the ball into his own net in the 85th and Victor Anichebe scoring in injury time.

Toure had earlier finished off a classy team move to make it 2-0 in the 24th before converting a 74th-minute penalty.
