If the rumours are to be believed, and several comments from his agent as well, Yaya Toure will be leaving Manchester City this summer.

The Ivorian has come in for criticism due to poor performances this season as City failed to defend their Premier League title, with many questioning whether it is time for his club to move him on.

Toure does however remain a key player in Manuel Pellegrini’s side, and no game demonstrated that better than Sunday’s win over Swansea City. We decided to take a look at his stats to see just how good he was.

First and foremost, Toure’s two goals helped his side to a 4-2 victory, with his first setting them on their way to victory. His shooting was impressive throughout, with his shooting accuracy coming in at 66%.

Elsewhere, his passing was also of a high standard, making 63 passes throughout the game with 54 of them on target, a success rate of 85%.

Of those 63 passes, 25 were made in the final third with an impressive 20 of those being accurate ones - a success rate of 80%.

So, an impressive performance from Toure who may have just convinced some people he has a future at Manchester City after all.
