Toure came off the bench in his return from a hamstring injury, subbing on for Ferhandinho in the 74th minute of Manchester City's 6-0 rout of QPR on Sunday. He finished with two shots (one on goal) and 13 passes.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that Toure was fully recovered from his ailment, so it was a bit surprising that he was used in a reserve role Saturday. Nevertheless, he's likely to regain his starting job next Sunday at Swansea City.

Toure is available for Sunday's match against QPR after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Toure suffered the injury last month against Aston Villa, though he was never expected to miss significant time. He'll likely slot back into his regular starting spot, which could be one of his last games for City, as he's been the subject of consistent rumors in the past few months after a potential move to Inter Milan to reunite with ex-City manager Roberto Mancini.

Toure is expected to be sidelined for two weeks after suffering a hamstring injury last weekend against Aston Villa, London24 reports.

Toure suffered the injury in the first half and was unable to play in the second, as he was ultimately replaced by Fernandinho, who eventually scored a late match-winner. It's a big blow to City, who continue to fight for a top-3 finish, and they'll try to get by with the likes of Fernandinho, Fernando and Frank Lampard in place of Toure.

Toure could miss next Saturday's game against Tottenham because of a hamstring injury, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Toure lasted only 45 minutes in Saturday's match against Aston Villa due to the ailment, and he is a big hole to fill in the midfield. Frank Lampard could get some extra playing time, or manager Manuel Pellegrini could use Fernando and Fernandinho together.

Toure has been ruled out for Saturday's match against West Brom because of an Achilles issue, manager Manuel Pellegrini announced Friday.

Toure hasn't been a strong contributor since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations and one has to wonder if the Achilles has been an issue for a while now. Fernandinho could get the start next to Fernando, which is how Pellegrini played his holding midfield during the AFCON.

Toure is in the starting lineup Sunday at Liverpool.

Toure was suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Barcelona, but he'll slot back in with the same lineup that routed Newcastle 5-0 last weekend.

Toure, who returned for Manchester City's match against Newcastle on Saturday after winning the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Barcelona because of a red card picked up during the group stage.

Toure's absence is a huge hit for City against the Spanish powers, while manager Manuel Pellegrini is expected to use Fernando and Fernandinho in his holding midfield spots.
