Man City determined to be a “better and stronger” team
Yaya Toure is determined to see win back the Premier League title from archrivals Manchester United. With Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City’s helm now, Toure believes his side will mount a serious challenge to anyone who contends from the Premier League title.
The Ivorian midfielder had a brilliant time in Manchester City’s Premier League opener against Newcastle United. Apart from being an impregnable wall in the midfield and proving to be a sharp in the attack, Toure put his name on the score-sheet in a 4-0 thrashing of the Toons.
Manchester City couldn’t have boasted about the most successful preseason. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini saw his men get bundled by mediocre teams. A 3-1 defeat in one of the last games of the season gave proof Manchester City’s weakness.
However, the opening day victory has proven to be a great confidence boost for the Eastlands. Toure, who scored on a free-kick in the Monday’s game, claims Manchester City are heading towards a brighter future.
“I hope I can continue to score important goals for the team, and I think this year is going to be a good one for us,” Toure told Manchester Evening News.
Manchester City are expected to win the Premier League this season, although Chelsea are mounting a strong challenge for the honors. Toure believes his side will make be hard to break down this season.
Chelsea have also made an impressive start to the season, with a 2-0 victory over Hull City. Their second game, a 2-1 win over Aston Villa was less impressive, but they proved to be dominant once again.
Toure claims Pellegrini’s men are ready for the challenges ahead. The 30-year-old Ivory coast midfielder insists his side is committed towards being a “better and stronger” team.
“This year, we want to do the job,” Toure said. “We want to work hard, keep it going, make it as difficult as possible for our opponents and try to be better and stronger.
“It's important for me and the club. I know how much everyone desires success, and that our fans only want to see one Manchester club profit this season.”
