Yes yes to Yaya in Etihad April vote

It was the goal that sparked a mass Wembley Poznan and it was the goal that launched a thousand votes.

Well, almost. Yaya Toure, scorer of the dramatic derby winner that booked City's first FA Cup Final in 30 years, is a predictable Etihad Player of the Month with 966 crosses by his name.

The attacking midfielder is the supporters' overwhelming April choice with Nigel de Jong, second in the March poll, again being forced into runners-up spot with 592 votes.

Mr Consistency Vincent Kompany, who won the March award by a handful of votes, is up there again in third place with 524, followed by fans' favourite Pablo Zabaleta and record-chaser Joe Hart.

Yaya, who started April by snapping up a goal against Sunderland, will receive his award from lucky fan Sam Higgins at Carrington after the student was plucked out of the hat in the Etihad draw.
