With less than a month of the season remaining Manchester City will be sweating on the fitness of Yaya Toure after the midfielder failed to emerge for the second half against Aston Villa on Saturday after tweaking his hamstring.
Toure was seen stretching his leg following a heavy challenge by Fabian Delph just minutes before half-time and the Ivorian was substituted at the break. However it was his replacement - Fernandinho - who grabbed the winner to earn all 3-points as the game seemed destined for a draw. Post-match Manuel Pellegrini confirmed his withdrawal was injury related "Toure had a hamstring problem so he couldn't play the second half. It is difficult to know today what happened, but it was not a precaution. It was a muscle injury and we will see tomorrow [Sunday] or Monday how bad it is." Typically a minor grade one tear would mean around 2/3 weeks on the sidelines and anything worse would end his campaign. Apr 26 - 11:51 AM
