Man Utd Legend Scholes Insists Man City Stronger Without Yaya Toure

It has been reported that Manchester United legend Paul Scholes felt the absence of Yaya Toure helped Manchester City pull off the Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manuel Pellegrini’s men came from behind to beat Bayern 3-2 at the Etihad, but Scholes says Frank Lampard was more than worthy of his spot.

He told ITV: “Toure has been a problem in the Champions League. For all his ability going forward he doesn’t really try getting back.

“I thought Lampard was excellent and used the ball well. He was a goal threat and had some good shots from outside the box.

“He made some good runs and if something had fell better for him he could’ve had a goal.

“He had a fantastic night and probably deserved to play ahead of Toure from what we’ve seen from him in the Champions League.”
