Here Comes Yaya, City's Cavalry

Manchester City can hear the sound of the cavalry coming, and it sounds like Africa.

Ivorian international Yaya Toure is on his way back to England from the African Cup of Nations.

And he is desperate to ameliorate the pain of yet another continental failure with success in the Premier League.

Defending champions City have missed their midfield powerhouse while he was away, even though they remained undefeated in his absence.

They may only have dropped points against QPR and Liverpool without him, but with Toure in tow, there is a chance that City would have had four extra points in their title tussle with Manchester United.

As it stands, City are a daunting nine points behind United as Toure makes his return.

However, the 29-year-old box-to-box wrecking ball says he is confident City can reduce their arrears, to make sure their title defence goes all the way to the wire.

"I'm sure we'll come back," Toure said, as he embarked upon his return journey to the Etihad.

"United have a strong squad and on paper they have an easier run-in than us but the title race is a long way from finished.

“It only takes a couple of results to go our way and we're right back in it."
