Manchester City lose key man to injury ahead of Real Madrid clash

Toure suffered a muscle injury in City’s 4-0 win over Stoke on last weekend and has not recovered in time to face the Spanish giants at the Etihad.

Pellegrini confirmed Toure was ruled out and is set to put his faith in Brazilian internationals Fernando and Fernandinho instead.

Pellegrini said: “I think Yaya is going to be out, he has not recovered from the muscle injury.

“The two Brazilian lads have played well whenever they have played together, against Roma and when we knocked PSG out this season, so I am very confident what they can provide for us.”
