Man City powerhouse may make return soon in boost for Guardiola

Manchester City fans here in the Tavern are loving life under Pep Guardiola, as the Citizens edge closer to securing the Premier League title. 

City have been an unforgiving force for the entirety of the current campaign as their efforts thus far have put them in a promising position, with European and domestic dominance now firmly in their sights. However, they’ve managed to break records and inflict punishing defeats without a star from yesteryear, as Yaya Toure’s lack of involvement in the side has been limited with an illness ruling him out over the past 3-4 days.

Although, with an FA Cup fifth round fixture coming up against Wigan Athletic on Monday, Guardiola will be hoping that the Ivorian can make his recovery in time to feature in the side. And, the midfield powerhouse may just get his chance, as Fitness Expert Ben Dinnery has revealed some promising news for Manchester City fans on Twitter.

According to Dinnery, Yaya Toure might be involved in City’s FA Cup encounter at the weekend as he continues to struggle through illness.

The return of an experienced figure like Yaya Toure would not only provide a deserved rest for some of the Citizens’ star players, but would also see an iconic figure return to the dressing room for City. Indeed, at an important part of the season where Guardiola’s eyes are set firmly on bringing trophies back to the Etihad, receiving the boost of the Ivory Coast international returning to the side could see his experience become priceless in the run in to the end of the season.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Yaya Toure will be a boost to the strength in depth that Guardiola has at his disposal in the midfield, as key back-up for some of their star men in what’re crucial times in City’s season. Indeed, with this looking to be his final season in the light blue shirt of Manchester City, utilizing Toure’s experience and wisdom could become handy in the long run.
