Toure could get Champions League call - Pep

Manchester City Vs Crystal Palace Match Live Streaming Preview Updates Premier League 2016-17

Guardiola, who by recalling Toure was able to rest midfielder Ilkay Gundogan ahead of Wednesday's key Champions League match against Borussia Moenchengladbach, was left thrilled with the contribution of the player he once coached at Barcelona.

Yaya Toure announced his dramatic return to the Manchester City side in style as his two goals secured a late 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace and sparked wild celebrations among the away fans at Selhurst Park in what proved to be unbelievable scenes.

And the City boss says this was far from a cameo from Toure, who can now expect to play a role across the remainder of the campaign, even if he is not registered to play in the Champions League.

And speaking after the match, Guardiola said that he and Toure had settled their differences and that the player has a role to play. After that what will happen will happen. 'I was a little bit anxious in the recent past against Middlesbrough, when you don't concede absolutely anything and you create enough chances to win the game. "He is another guy to compete with our midfield players". Guardiola must be proud of his players who were able to earn all three points on the road in a tough environment.

But asked if he regretted leaving Toure out of the European squad in the first place, Guardiola simply replied: "No".

Toure himself was thrilled to be back playing for City and thanked his teammates for their support.

'To achieve the titles you have to win the games when you play in this way, ' Guardiola said.

"We can not forget that a few weeks ago we beat the best team in Europe - Barcelona".

"At the beginning we did not count on him, he would not be here, but he can play many positions and we have one more man to help us achieve our targets".

Palace manager Alan Pardew responded at halftime by replacing Andros Townsend with Wickham and was rewarded when his team produced a greater intensity and Christian Benteke threatened with a header.

"One month and a half he's been ready to play". We hope that it's nothing too serious and he makes a speedy recovery. "Having said all of that, my players are pretty diligent on those sorts of things, and it is an unusual mistake for us".
