Yaya Toure played a good match against Colombia but couldn't score nor assist as the Ivory Coast lost 2-1.

Ex-Arsenal player Gervinho scored a brilliant solo effort to bring the Ivory Coast to within one but they couldn't score a second. Ex-Chelsea star Didier Drogba came on in the second half but couldn't provide the finishing touch they needed. Arsenal target Serge Aurier played another fantastic game delivering crosses and taking on players on the right flank. The right back will be a highly pursued player once the World Cup is over as he's established himself as one of the best right backs around.

Ivory Coast XI: Barry, Boka, Zokora, Kalou, Tiote, Gervinho, Bony, Aurier, Toure Y, Serey, Bamba

The big news here is Didier Drogba's exclusion from the XI as Swansea City's Wilfried Bony, coming off a terrific season, gets a chance up top against Japan.

Yaya Toure hasn't had a chance to fully train yet and is questionable for Ivory Coast's first World Cup match.

Toure is having trouble getting fit with a thigh injury but remains hopeful he'll be ready in time. Ivory Coast's Lamouchi also stated that Yaya might start or come in as a sub in the first match, so it seems the midfielder is definitely close to being fully fit. We wouldn't use him in fantasy for match 1 but everything after that should be a green light.

Manchester City star Yaya Toure has told France Football that he could not rule out a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain.

This story follows on from the ridiculous report last week regarding Manchester City's treatment of Yaya Toure's birthday celebrations, and the fact the player felt unappreciated. It seemed odd then, with many commentators suggesting the moaning was to force a pay-rise, although his agent Dimitry Seluk stated he was only looking for Toure to be offered a job on City's backroom staff when he finishes playing, and not an increase in contract length or money. Toure mentions both PSG and Barcelona in his latest interview, so something is certainly afoot, and we'll continue to update you throughout the summer.

Yaya Toure's agent has reportedly told The Sun that the Ivory Coast midfielder may look to leave Premier League champions Manchester City this summer.

This is a really odd one. Yaya Toure has just sealed a second Premier League title with his club, is on a lucrative long-term contract, and has constantly expressed his happiness at Manchester City. However, his agent Dimitry Seluk has been quoted as suggesting City have not made Toure feel valued nor appreciated, and have treated him with disrespect. His issue seems to be around the fact the club scheduled a party in Abu Dhabi to celebrate City's title triumph at the same time as the midfielder's 31st birthday, and claims the player's unhappiness has nothing to do with money, but "human relationships". The most interesting line of the quotes was Seluk's claim that "this is not about money. In fact, he would take less to return to Barcelona." Is Yaya pining for move back to his former club? Is he looking to force a salary increase from the City hierarchy? Or is he simply upset that nobody wished him a happy birthday? Watch this space ...

Yaya Toure left Manchester City's match against Everton with what could be an injury as his team went to the top of the table after a win.

Toure left around the hour mark and seemed to have a slight limp to him as he was walking off. With Aguero leaving injured earlier in the match, this could be a huge blow for City as they try to win their final two games of the season in order to win the Premier League title. We will get a chance to see if Toure is actually injured before we have to make any week 38 decisions since City play their second match of the gameweek on Wednesday. If he misses any time, Javi Garcia or Fernandinho should take his place in the starting XI.

Yaya Toure returned from injury to spark Manchester City to a 0-2 win over Crystal Palace, moving them to within three points of table leaders Liverpool with a game still in hand.

In a season where Luis Suarez seems the obvious choice for player of the season, Toure has made a very good case for himself. Four minutes in, he calmly delivered a perfect lob into the area where Edin Dzeko sprinted in and the Bosnian headed it home. Then, just before halftime, Samir Nasri linked up with Toure on a swift counterattack, and the Ivorian, after shrugging off Damien Delaney like a fly, sent a beautiful left footed curler into the top corner of net. TOure now has an astonishing 19 league goals this season to go along with 6 assists and looks to be a must own commodity in fantasy for Man City's upcoming double gameweek.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini had mixed news regarding his injured midfielders ahead of the key clash against Crystal Palace.

The good news for Pellegrini is that Yaya Toure has returned to training after his groin injury and should be fit enough to start against Palace this weekend, replacing Javi Garcia. However, Jesus Navas remains unavailable and David Silva is out again after rolling his ankle against West Brom, which should mean Samir Nasri and James Milner retain their places in the starting XI.

Manchester City will be missing Yaya Toure for up to two weeks due to the groin injury picked up against Liverpool.

This is obviously bad news for City, but Yaya was initially ruled out of playing again this season, so it could've been worse. The midfielder will miss the second part of this double-week against Sunderland, as well as the clash against West Brom in Week 35, but Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping he could be ready to return against Crystal Palace at the end of April. In other news, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero both came through the Liverpool game without problems and will be expected to start on Wednesday.

Yaya Toure was substituted in the first half of Manchester City's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool due to injury.

Toure injured himself attempting a shot early in the game and never looked comfortable before he was eventually withdrawn on 19 minutes. It looked to be a groin problem, and it would appear unlikely that the midfielder will be able to face Sunderland in midweek. We await official news from City over the coming days.

Manchester City turned the screw on their Premier League title rivals by beating Southampton 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Yaya Toure opened the scoring with a penalty after Edin Dzeko had been fouled, before Rickie Lambert levelled things up from the spot as Southampton started dominating the game. However, goals from Samir Nasri and Dzeko in first-half stoppage time put City well in control, and a late effort from Stevan Jovetic made it 14 wins from 15 home league games this season. Manuel Pellegrini's men move within a point of Liverpool with a game in hand and the two sides face each other in Week 34.

Yaya Toure scored his first ever Premier League hat-trick on the way to a 5-0 win over Fulham.

Manchester City dominated the game from start to finish but really pulled away in the second half. Toure scored twice from the penalty spot and once from open play to get them ahead 3-0. Fernandinho and Martin Demichelis added two more goals to make a bad day worse for Fulham. Manchester City are six points behind Chelsea but have three games less and are currently the favorites to win the title. They face Manchester United, Arsenal, Southampton, and Liverpool in their next four games and if they can come out with three wins, they will be in prime position to challenge for the title.

Manchester City came from behind to defeat Sunderland 3-1 in a thrilling Capital One Cup Final at Wembley.

Sunderland started the game superbly and took a deserved lead in to the half-time interval after Fabio Borini's fine early goal, but the game changed early in the second half. Yaya Toure collected the ball 30 years from goal, played a short pass, and when it was returned to him he unleashed a stunning clipped strike which bent and dipped in to the top corner. Within 90 seconds Samir Nasri had put City ahead with another great goal, hitting a curling volley in to the bottom corner with the outside of his boot. As Sunderland chased the game, City hit them on the counter-attack and Jesus Navas wrapped up the win and the trophy in the dying minutes. Manuel Pellegrini wins his first trophy in England, and one would assume it is the first of many. The Black Cats will be bitterly disappointed, but they were excellent, and if the players can reproduce this level of performance in the Premier League then they will surely avoid relegation.
