Toure Only Out For Two Weeks

Manchester City boss, Manuel Pellegrini, has confirmed that Yaya Toure will only be side-lined for two weeks due to a groin injury.

The Ivory Coast star picked up the injury after just 19 minutes at Anfield on Sunday and it was initially feared that his season could be over.

Toure has been in great form this season, scoring 18 Premier League goals, and Pellegrini was relieved that the 30-year-old might feature again before the end of the season.

"Yaya has a muscle injury and we'll see how it is. Maybe it's not as bad as we thought at the beginning but he needs at least ten days or two weeks to recover,” he said.

The Chilean also confirmed that captain, Vicent Kompany, and star striker, Sergio Aguero, are both fit and could make the starting XI against Sunderland on Wednesday.

"Vincent is fine - he is on the squad list for tomorrow and so is Sergio. We'll see tomorrow who starts,” Pellegrini continued.

“It's important we start with the same high performance we showed in the second half of the Liverpool game."

Pellegrini is hopeful his side can win the first of their two postponed matches to pile the pressure on title contenders, Liverpool and Chelsea.

"There are still six games for us to play. The important thing is that we win our games because we can do nothing about the other teams.

"We can do a lot of things here and I'm sure the players know exactly what they have to do. They know that that starts tomorrow in winning one of the two games postponed so both Liverpool and Chelsea can feel that we are just four points and three points behind them."

Can Sergio Aguero fill the gap left by Yaya Toure? Have your say in the comment section below.
