Yaya Toure rather likes playing at St James’ Park. After his double there last season gave Manchester City the edge in the title race, he played an absolutely beautiful ball for City’s opener on Saturday lunchtime.
Collecting the ball in midfield, he played a delicious ball that took out four Newcastle players. The ball set through Samir Nasri on goal and the French midfielder, who has taken a fair bit of stick this week, showed great awareness to dink the ball across to Sergio Aguero.
Is this the pass of the season so far?
