Yaya Toure believes buoyant Man City play better football than their FA Cup rivals

Date Posted,April 21, 2017

Yaya Toure claims Manchester City are playing better football than their FA Cup rivals.

In a put-down for Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal, Toure says City’s brand of passing football under Pep Guardiola is the most attractive out of the four clubs.

He praised City’s style, even though they are trailing Chelsea and Tottenham in the Premier League.

“I think we are the team who produce the most beautiful games,” he said.

“We all do a good job, we’ve been doing it, I think. We deserve something. Of course, I don’t take credit from Chelsea or Arsenal or Tottenham for being there.

“I think these four clubs are fighting. They have all won trophies and I think the one who is going to win will deserve it.”

City’s semi-final clash with Arsenal has become their season because of their failures in the other competitions and Toure knows the stakes are high.

“It’s a very big game for us,” he said. “We can’t deny it. It’s very important for us. I just want to add this trophy to my living room.”

Toure is City’s Wembley’s talisman and he has scored in two finals and a semi-final as well as the decisive penalty in last season’s Capital One Cup win.

The Ivory Coast star has fond memories of his winner in the 2011 FA Cup Final because it brought the first trophy of the Sheikh Mansour era.

“I can’t describe what it felt like,” he said. “I think after the trophy, everything happened because after that, those type of players like Sergio Aguero came, that started everything.”
