London: Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure will be out of action for two weeks due to a muscle injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini said, ruling the Ivorian out of Wednesday’s home Premier League game against bottom club Sunderland.
“Yaya has a muscle injury – we’ll see with the doctor how many days, perhaps two weeks,” Pellegrini said on Tuesday. “Maybe it’s not so bad as we thought at the beginning .”
Roberto Martinez has led Everton to their highest Premier League points tally in his first season at Goodison Park, but remains wary of Tony Pulis’s transformation of Crystal Palace as he seeks to keep their Champions League ambitions on track on Wednesday. (Reuters)
