Yaya Touré has been a shadow of himself this campaign, but the Ivory Coast international helped Manchester City get yet another crucial victory in the Manchester derby. City have enjoyed the upper hand in the local derbies of late.
This record continued after Sergio Aguero’s score in the second half to give City a 1-0 win. The result keeps the blues five points behind Chelsea in the league table. There was a danger of dropping more points especially given that Pellegrini’s team had suffered two defeats leading up to this match.
Thiago Silva is going to remain away from action for some time at least after injuring his hammy playing against Napoli the other day.
The MRI tests have been done on the defender and the results have not been too positive. It’s believed that he will be missing 3-4 games for his club Paris Saint-Germain.
Silva will obviously be sidelined now from Brazil’s matches too during international break.
The Selecao has to face Colombia and Ecuador back-to-back and they will have to do without Silva in those two games.
The Brazilian midfielder and new arrival of Manchester City, Fernando signed with the English club earlier in the month of June as City had to pay the Portuguese side Porto around €12 million in order to seal the services of Fernando on a permanent deal.
Fernando will be playing alongside popular and recognized players such as: Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero, Frank Lampard, David Silva, Samir Nasri, Bacary Sagna and James Milner just to name a few of the more well-known figures of Manchester City but Fernando is most excited to work next to Yaya Toure.
Yaya Toure has criticized his club Manchester City for not allowing him to spend a few days with one of his siblings Ibrahim who passed away recently.
Manchester City have once again be subjected to criticism from the midfielder Yaya Touré, who stated that it was a club who prevented him from spending time with his dying brother towards the end of the season. The Touré brothers recently lost their younger brother Ibrahim Toure, who is believed to have succumbed to cancer, at the age of 28. Since he has been undergoing treatment in England for a considerable period, both Yaya Touré and Kolo Toure have been able to visit him consistently.
