Toure took a team-high five shots and found the back of the net in the 81st minute of Manchester City's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

With Sergio Aguero (knee), Stevan Jovetic (hamstring) and Edin Dzeko (calf) all sidelined, Manchester City went with James Milner as a false-nine, though it was Toure and David Silva (two goals) that provided the offensive spark. Toure now has five goals on the season, with four of them coming in the last six matches. He'll look to extend his solid play on Boxing Day at West Brom.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Toure is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Roma after picking up a red card back on Nov. 5 against CSKA Moscow.

City need only a draw to advance, so it's possible that they could start Fernando and Fernandinho in the center of the midfield to try to slow down the Roma attack.

Toure scored from the penalty spot in the 24th minute of Manchester City's 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

Toure has now scored four goals in his last six matches in all competitions, three of which have come during Premier League play. With David Silva iffy for Tuesday's Champions League match against Roma, and Sergio Aguero out with a knee injury, even more of the offensive responsibilities will fall on Toure's shoulders.

Toure scored in the 51st minute of Manchester City's 3-0 win over Southampton on Sunday, his third goal in his last four appearances.

Toure has been excellent over his last few games, as he picked up an assist in the only game without a goal in his last four appearances. Up next is a Wednesday trip to Sunderland, who held Chelsea scoreless for the first time all season Saturday.

Toure took four shots, all on goal, made three key passes and scored the match-winner in the 62nd minute of Manchester City's 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

Toure has been a struggling fantasy producer this season, but he's starting to turn it on, scoring two goals and assisting on another in his last three matches in all competitions. He'll get a bit of a break in the midweek, as he is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich after picking up two yellows against CSKA Moscow back on Oct. 21.

Toure scored, but was shown a red card in Manchester City's devastating 2-1 loss to CSKA Moscow in UCL group stage play on Wednesday.

Toure has regressed this season for City, and the fans are starting to turn against the old-time fan favorite. With the red card, he has most likely seen his last Champions League action as City are in the basement of Group E with Bayern Munich on the horizon in their next match.

Toure picked up a groin injury in Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Newcastle, but manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that he expects Toure to play Sunday against Manchester United.

Manchester City will be without David Silva for at least three weeks after he picked up a knee injury Wednesday, putting even more pressure on Toure to move the attack forward against a Manchester United defense that has really struggled this season.

Toure suffered a groin injury during Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Newcastle, ESPN FC reports.

Toure was able to play through the issue a bit, but eventually came off in the 60th minute. The injury couldn't have come at a worse time, as the Citizens will host Manchester United this Sunday.
