When YayaToure originally joined Manchester City back on July of 2010, the Ivorian midfielder quickly made a significant influence at the Etihad Stadium as he was a consistent starter.
Even during his debut season in the English Premier League outfit, YayaToure never really struggled trying to find a regular spot in the first team.
Since arriving to Manchester City over 7 years ago, the experienced midfielder has constantly been able to make more than 30 appearances in almost every single season which shows just how much of an impact that YayaToure made.
Unfortunately for the Ivorian midfielder, it does not appear like he has a very healthy relationship with the head coach Pep Guardiola as YayaToure has not made a single appearance in this recently started English Premier League season of 2017-18.
Manchester City’s 4 opening matches of the season has seen them facing off with: Brighton, Everton, Bournemouth and Liverpool. YayaToure has not made a single appearance in any of these matches as he has had to settle with a place on the sidelines as an unused substitute player.
