MAN OF THE MATCH
Yaya Toure (Manchester City) – Toure is a frustrating player, capable of so much but often a bit of a liability when used in a two-man midfield these days. However, it’s that sort of criticism that so riles the Ivorian, and you can understand his frustration when his defensive shortcomings mean that the consistently match-winning moments he provides further up the pitch are ignored by many. Were it not for Toure City would have lost this game. It was his sensational skill to twist into the penalty area that created the chance for his side’s equaliser, and he was at it again when he provided the spark that City needed at the death to create room for De Bruyne’s shooting opportunity.
