Season Over For Yaya Toure?

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, has admitted Yaya Toure could miss the remaining games of the season.

The Ivorian international limped off the pitch with what look like a groin problem after just 15 minutes into the first half in Manchester City's 3-2 defeat at Anfield on Sunday.

"It's difficult for Yaya to be in the next game. We will see tomorrow, I don't know how serious he is injured.

"I think it will be difficult for him to finish playing this season,” Pellegrini said after the game.

Toure has been in high-flying form this season, scoring 18 Premier League goals for the Citizens in 31 games.

He also scored a beautiful goal in the League Cup final, which proved that the strong central midfielder always steps up when his side needs him.

However, the injury now means that Toure is likely to miss City’s last six games of the season, which could be a big blow for their title chances. The Citizens need to win all their remaining games and hope for a slip-up of log leaders Liverpool.

With the World Cup on the horizon, Ivory Coast fans and staff will be hopeful that Toure’s injury might not be as bad as feared after the game.

Toure will undergo tests in Manchester today and we will update you on the state of his injury.
