Altidore scores 1st Premier League goal

HULL, England — U.S. forward Jozy Altidore scored his first Premier League goal Saturday in helping relegation-threatened Hull upset big-spending Manchester City 2-1. Altidore, playing his 18th Premier League match, scored in the 31st minute after being fed by Jan Venegoor of Hesselink on the edge of the penalty area and curling into the bottom corner past goalkeeper Shay Given. The 20-year-old's only other goal for Hull came in the League Cup against Southend on Aug. 25, his second match after arriving on loan from Spain's Villarreal.
