Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini announced the return of Yaya Toure to the City side and other team news ahead of the Blues second leg Round of 16 UEFA Champions clash with Dynamo Kiev. MAnchester City leads the tie 3-1 on aggregate.

"Yaya is fit to play tomorrow. He has no problems. Nasri, Delph and De Bruyne, I expect they can play a friendly game during the international break.

"We talked yesterday and today about what we must do tomorrow. We're not going to play with the score we got in Kyiv, we're just going to say it's 0-0 and try to win the game tomorrow. That's how we approach it.

"The most important thing is to know we have not qualified already. We play against a big team who know how to play this type of game. That's the first target, then we see who we'd play in the next round. With the trust and confidence, we continue.

"When you achieve a good achievement that you couldn't do before, it gives more experience and confidence. It was important to win the group and I'm sure this group wants to keep making new achievements.

"We've improved in the competition. Before I arrived here, the club didn't qualify for the Round of 16 but we've did it twice in the first two years with Bayern Munich in our group both times and we won two and lost two against them."
