Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has praised the form that Yaya Toure has shown so far this season.

The Ivorian midfielder scored his fifth goal of the campaign on Tuesday night as City hammered Wigan Athletic 5-0 in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

"He is a very important player for the team," Sky Sports News quotes Pellegrini as saying.

"I don't know what happened last year but all the players are playing with trust and a goal always give them trust. I think it is very important. He is really in a good moment."
