Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was delighted for Yaya Toure after his two goal blast at Newcastle United.

Toure, pushed further forward after Mancini hooked Carlos Tevez, rewarded the manager's thinking with a late double.

Mancini said: "Yaya is an important player for us because he has experience. He won with Barca, he won trophies and he brought to us this experience for this reason.

"Yaya is a fantastic player, but I don't think you can win here because Yaya played well. We won here against Newcastle because all the team played really well and we deserved to win."
