We must pounce on United slip - Toure
Yaya Toure has urged Manchester City to capitalise on being handed an unexpected Premier League title lifeline by Manchester United.
Toure has described next Monday's derby with United at the Etihad Stadium as one of the most important games in the club's history. The midfielder and other City players found out about United's shock 4-4 home draw with Everton while on the coach to Molineux for Sunday's clash with Wolves. A 2-0 win, thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri, means City are only three points behind United and with a superior goal difference. Toure said: "United's result was amazing. It was an unbelievable day for us with United dropping points at home. For me, it was strange. "We found out about it on the bus on the way to Wolves. It was quite unbelievable and we now have to try and take advantage. We did the first part by beating Wolves but we have to settle down and continue to work hard because United still have three points more than us. "We have to play them at home and, if you look at the record of United, they are very strong away and it will be a very difficult test for us. I think this year the club need to win the cup (title) and it will be difficult. But we need to win this derby because it will be one of the most important games the club have had."
