Yaya Toure missed Manchester City’s disappointing draw at the Etihad on Sunday as the Ivorian midfielder was rested as a precaution because of concerns regarding a minor groin problem.
Manuel Pellegrini confirmed post-match yesterday that Yaya Toure was missing from Sundays’ match-day squad because of a muscular issue which he felt during the build-up to GW18 at the Hawthorns. However those comments were contradictory to the answer he gave on Boxing Day when questions were asked regarding the early withdrawal of Toure and Silva against West Brom "[both players] are fine and were [substituted] to keep them fresh [for Sunday]." But having seen City lose a two goal lead at the Etihad Pellegrini confirmed Toure would be assessed on Monday because of a niggling groin issue although the rumour mongers will have you believe the manager is trying to save face having rested Toure [four yellow cards] against what would be perceived as weaker opposition to keep him available for the Sunderland game on New Year’s Day.
