Yaya Toure expressed his delight after helping Manchester City return to winning ways in the Champions League against CSKA Moscow.

Zoran Tošić put the hosts ahead in the 32nd minute but Sergio Aguero struck twice before half-time to move City into second place in Group D behind leaders Bayern Munich.

“It was very important to come back [after the 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich earlier this month]. It’s nice and full credit to the team, we worked very hard and it was not so easy,” said Toure.

“We knew it was going to be difficult for us and we played well as a team.”

“Sergio Aguero was fantastic today. He’s an amazing player. When you have someone like that in the team his quality is important.”

Meanwhile, Pellegrini, who had expressed his dissatisfaction at the state of the pitch in Moscow, was thrilled to see his side take three points away from a testing encounter.

“It was a difficult game,” said Pellegrini, whose side travel to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

“The pitch was very difficult to play on so having the three points in this match was very important for the future of the team.”
