Crystal Palace midfielder Cabaye: Yaya toughest I've faced

Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye has revealed Yaya Toure has been his toughest opponent in football.

The Frenchman has faced Toure in the Premier League since 2011 - bar one year while Cabaye was at PSG - with Newcastle United and Palace.

And on BBC programme Match of the Day Kickabout when asked who his toughest opponent was, Cabaye listed the Manchester City midfielder.

He said: "Yaya Toure - he is a fantastic footballer and he plays less now, but I remember a couple of seasons ago he was amazing and really hard to play against."
