Injured Toure out of Norwich tie


Yaya Toure will miss Saturday's Premier League game against Norwich City after suffering a recurrence of a heel injury.

Toure was injured during City's Capital One Cup final win over Liverpool and missed the Premier League defeat against the same opponents three days later. He returned to the City team for last weekend's thrashing of Aston Villa but he has suffered a recurrence of the injury and will miss the trip to Carrow Road on Saturday.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini does not know how long he will be without the midfielder but has revealed the issue is the same as the one that kept Sergio Aguero out for a month.

"Yaya Toure has a problem in his heel, he has also the same problem, why he couldn't play against Liverpool," Pellegrini told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

"We'll see next week how he improves."

City are due to face Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League next week but Toure could be ruled out of the game at the Etihad Stadium.

"We don't know, we must see," Pellegrini replied when asked if Toure would be back for the Kiev clash.

"It's a pain in his heel. Sergio had one month ago the same problem. He delays a little bit more, [so] I hope that Yaya can return sooner."
