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.

Toure played the full 90 minutes in Ivory Coast's 2-1 victory over Japan on Saturday. His status for the match was in doubt due to a hamstring issue, but it did not keep him from missing any time. Toure finished the match with two shots, but neither were on target.

The hamstring injury suffered at the end of the Premier League season does not look like it will force Toure to miss any World Cup action. He should be ready to play the full 90 minutes again when Ivory Coast take on Colombia on Thursday in a crucial Group C match.

Toure (hamstring) is not back to full fitness ahead of Saturday's match against Japan, reports Sky Sports. Toure injured his hamstring at the end of the Premier League season and underwent surgery just last month. His status will be determined by a fit test before the match.

Even if Toure is able to play, his playing time may be limited in the opening match in order to ensure he is healthy for the remainder of the tournament.

Toure finished the 2013-14 Premier League season with 20 goals, leading all midfielders in England, while also adding nine assists, which tied him for fifth in the league.

It was a remarkable season for Toure, which capped it off by hoisting the league trophy on the last day of the season. He is in the conversation for the best midfielder in the world, and he'll be a mainstay in the City starting XI for years to come.

Toure had a goal and an assist in Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Toure joins Liverpool attackers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge as the only players in the Premier League with 20 goals this season. It's been an incredible year for Toure, who had only seven goals last season. He'll look to close out the season a high note, with Manchester City winning the Premier League title if they can defeat West Ham on Sunday.

Toure, who was substituted off from Saturday's match against Everton, has been declared fit for Manchester City's final two Premier League matches, Sky Sports reports. "It was very important I came off (against Everton). It has been difficult for me in a short space of time to recover from the injury I picked up at Liverpool and prepare physically," Toure said. "If you are not fully prepared it is very tough, because you have to be at 100 per cent for these games and coming back is always difficult, especially at the end of the season, but I feel good."

This is great news for City and for fantasy owners, who will both try to ride Toure to a title this weekend.
