Paul Scholes: 'Yaya Toure needs to step it up'

Paul Scholes claims that Yaya Toure needs to pick up his form or face a tough evening for Manchester City as they host Roma in the Champions League.

Paul Scholes has claimed that Yaya Toure could be in for a difficult evening for Manchester City as they host Roma in the Champions League.

The Ivorian has come under fire for his performances this season, and the Manchester United legend is of the opinion that Toure is nowhere near the form he displayed last season.

"I've been speaking to City fans and he's been poor this season really," Scholes told ITV Sport. "He's fired City to the title last season and he was special, but he's really struggled to get going.

"Tonight is a big game for him really, he's playing that holding midfield role with Fernandinho and it could be a struggle.

Elsewhere in the group, Bayern Munich beat CSKA Moscow 1-0 thanks to Thomas Muller's penalty on Tuesday afternoon.
