Pellegrini: We’ll Miss Yaya Toure

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, believes his side will miss their midfield motor, Yaya Toure, but is hopeful his squad is strong enogh to cope without him.

The Ivory Coast international is City’s top scorer this season, but will be side-lined for around two weeks after picking up a leg groin injury against Liverpool on Sunday.

"He's (Toure) an important player, one of the most important we have in our team,” the Chilean said.

"But we have a squad and must replace him in this moment. I am sure we are going to do it with no problem."

Meanwhile, City's star striker, Sergio Aguero, is ready to make his return to the starting XI when City welcome bottom side, Sunderland, at the Etihad stadium tonight. Aguero returned to play as a substitute against Liverpool after picking up two almost consecutive hamstring injuries and is expected to fill the gap left by Toure.

Pellegrini praised his squad for coping with the amount of injuries and is hopeful his side can pile the pressure on title contenders, Liverpool and Chelsea, with a victory over Sunderland tonight.

"We have played the whole season with a lot of injuries. Now we have Yaya - we've had Kompany, Aguero, (Samir) Nasri."

"We were the only team that continued in the four competitions because we had an important squad and a lot of those players played well.”
