Paris - Kenyan Victor Wanyama scored a superb 35-yard goal to earn Southampton a 1-0 weekend win at Hull City in the English Premier League.
The Saints midfielder stroked a poor clearance from Eldin Jakupovic over the goalkeeper and into the net after just three minutes.
Wanyama demonstrated superb alertness and excellent technique to score the only goal of the game as second-place Southampton maintained their impressive start to the league season. Home goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic's poor third-minute clearance found Wanyama who, without taking a touch, coolly stroked the ball over the head of the Hull shot-stopper and into the net from 35 yards.
Standout players from the weekend also included Nigerian Victor Moses and Senegalese Mame Biram Diouf, who were both on target for
Stoke City against West Ham, as well as Yaya Toure, whose assist set up City's goal against Manchester United.
A week after being accused of diving by Swansea manager Garry Monk, Moses, on loan from Chelsea, scored his first goal of the season when he scrambled the ball over the line after Bojan Krkic's shot deflected off James Collins in the 33rd minute to put the Potters one up against West Ham.
Meanwhile, Mame Biram Diouf scored his fourth goal in 11 matches when he headed in Jonathan Walters's 56th-minute cross at the Britannia Stadium. Unfortunately for Moses and Diouf, West Ham recovered to draw 2-2.
Yaya Toure saw plenty of action as Premier League champions City prevailed 1-0 against Manchester United in a fiery derby at Eastlands. The Ivorian might have won a penalty when Marcos Rojo clattered into him as he tried to bring down a high ball, one of several unsuccessful City appeals for a spot-kick. But, with United playing more than half the match down to 10 men after Chris Smalling was sent off, Toure started the move that led to the only goal when his superbly weighted pass found Gael Clichy, who crossed for Sergio Aguero to sweep home from 10 yards.
