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 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.
