Toure returned late in the week from international duty, and while manager Manuel Pellegrini said Toure would play a part, it looks like it won't be guaranteed.

Toure is expected to play in Manchester City's Premier League match against Tottenham on Saturday despite returning from international duty Wednesday, ESPN FC reports.

Toure missed City's first game after the September international break, but manager Manuel Pellegrini said all of his players who played for their national teams are available to face Spurs.

Toure may miss Manchester City's matches against Tottenham on Saturday due to a late return from international duty, reports the Mirror.

Toure will play in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Wednesday, and may not be back at City's grounds until the day before the league match with Tottenham. The player will need to be assessed before the match to determine if he is fit to play.

Toure scored in the 82nd minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday, his first goal of the season.

After scoring 20 goals in Premier League play last season, there was plenty of talk about Toure's struggles this season, as he not only hadn't scored a goal through six matches, but he also hasn't recorded an assist. He's been the priciest midfield option in many salary cap leagues, whether season-long or daily games, but he's the kind of player who can turn it on after one goal.

Toure did not play in Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal after he returned from international duty on Friday, according to the Daily Mirror.

With Manchester City slated to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday, manager Manuel Pellegrini decided to hold Toure out instead of forcing him in after the long trip back to England.

Toure took two shots, with one on goal, but also picked up a yellow card during Manchester City's 3-1 win over Liverpool on Monday.

Toure finished with 20 goals last season in Premier League play, so fantasy owners are starting to wonder when his first goal will come. With a home match against Stoke coming on Saturday, that breakthrough could happen soon.

Toure was all over the field in Manchester City's Premier League opener against Newcastle on Sunday, although he was held without a goal or an assist.

Toure made a spectacular long-distance pass to Edin Dzeko, who back-heeled the ball to David Silva, who punched home the opening goal. He also got banged up a few times during the match, although he was still able to play all 90 minutes. Up next is a tough matchup against Liverpool at home.

Toure put speculation about his future to rest by saying that he is planning on staying at Manchester City, reports Sky Sports.

The midfielder has been the subject of transfer rumors this summer, but has a contract with the club until 2017 and intends to honor it.
