Yaya Toure might be the most complete “box-to-box” midfielder in the world. Now he’s bending into perfect free kicks like he’s David Beckham?
Saturday the Ivorian Manchester City star popped in this free kick from the edge of the area vs. Fulham making it look beyond easy in the process, although he didn’t call bank.
4 – Yaya Toure has scored four direct free kicks in his Premier League career; with all of them coming this season. Laser.—

If Toure is able to score like this on dead balls from regularity, someone is going to have to file a restraining order because it’s simply not going to be fair to the rest of the Premier League. More practically, Toure scoring goals will help ease the burden on City while top-scorer Sergio Aguero misses the next eight weeks through injury. [GIF via r/soccer]
