Claudio Bravo made a surprise return in goal as Manchester City hosted Hull in the Premier League.

The Chilean, controversially signed as replacement for Joe Hart earlier in the season because of his perceived superior footwork, was dropped in January after a series of poor performances.

Willy Caballero then took over, with Bravo's only appearances since having come in the FA Cup.

Bravo was widely criticised after conceding six goals from six shots faced in back-to-back games against Everton and Tottenham in January.

Manager Pep Guardiola, however, decided to restore the 33-year-old as City looked to get back to winning ways after taking just three points from their last four league games.
