Up: Yaya Toure
Things looked like they were all over for Yaya Toure at Manchester City. After a downturn in relations which started with a birthday cake debacle, the ‘overweight’ Ivorian looked as if he would never play for Pep Guardiola, a man who had sold him once before, again.
But yesterday Toure returned to the side against Crystal Palace, and scored an impressive double in a 2-1 win for the Citizens. His first goal and excellently taken finish after a one-two with Nolito and the second steered in from a corner.
If he can play like this all season, City have got yet another weapon to exploit.
