Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has admitted that he needs to improve next season to keep his place in the side.
The Ivorian has said that whoever the club signs this summer will provide him with more competition, meaning that he will have to remain at an optimum level in order to retain his place in City's starting XI.
"There are a lot of signings that the club has made and I am sure that will have a positive impact on the side," Toure told Goal.com.
"With that in mind, I need to up my game and make sure that I am at my peak at all times. I am also hoping that I will stay injury-free for the whole season so that I will be able to deliver.
"Looking at our preparations and with the new manager on board, I am confident that things will be better [next season]."
