Yaya expects title success

Yaya Toure has revealed Manchester City are expecting to win the Premier League title this season.

City have finally broken into the Champions League after finishing third last term, and they have already added Gael Clichy and Stefan Savic to the squad this summer with a big-name signing such as Sergio Aguero expected to follow.

Toure knows that things will be more demanding as they compete in Europe's top club competition, but he believes City will win the title for the first time since 1967-68.

"The new season will be very, very hard and we need to improve, because this season the club will play in the Champions League," he told the club's official website.

"And we expect to stay in the top four of the Premier League and we expect to win the Premier League because now we are coming with more confidence, the players know each other better. I think this year will be fantastic for us."

City will be boosted by the return of Yaya's brother, Kolo, in September when he completes his six-month suspension after failing a drug test.

Yaya said: "Kolo's well. He's in New York with the family. We hope September will come quickly and we hope to help the club win something again next year.

"Now I think he's more happy than anybody because he will come quickly back to the team, and for the team we need him because we know the Premier League is very hard and we need to have two or three players per position."

Toure has also tipped 17-year-old Spanish teenager Denis Suarez, who signed from Celta Vigo earlier in the summer, to make an impact.

"He's a midfield player with very, very good quality," he said. "He's young and he has an amazing ability to take the ball, like all the Spanish players, and I think it's fantastic for the club."
