Yaya Toure will miss midweek West Brom match

Any Manchester City player was going to be a risk. With the FA Cup final this weekend, the midweek match against West Brom will not be a priority. So we may see the likes of Javi Garcia, James Milner, Micah Richards... even Scott Sinclair could feature.

One popular choice that won't feature for sure is the injured (sorry, fatigued) Yaya Toure.

Yaya Touré should be fit for FA Cup final despite muscle fatigue | Football | guardian.co.uk

[Yaya Touré] will almost certainly miss the league visit of West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday evening as the club continue to monitor his fitness. Yet the "muscle problem" that forced him off at the Liberty Stadium is not thought to be serious.

Touré suffered the problem during the warm-up at Swansea and was replaced as a precaution, with Roberto Mancini conscious that the midfielder's proven pedigree at Wembley will be invaluable for Saturday's Cup final.

He's owned by 17% of Y! fantasy managers, though I wonder if 15% of them are inactive teams who have just had him in the side all season.

Anyone add Yaya for the double week? If so, we're here for you.
