Javi Garcia ready to replace Toure at Man City

Javi Garcia is ready to fill the void at Manchester City left by Yaya Toure.

The summer arrival from Benfica admits he has not found it easy settling into a new club and new country but hopes a regular run of games will help him.

He told The Sun: "With Yaya gone for a few weeks it might be a good opportunity to show the manager what I can do. I played quite a few games alongside Yaya.

"But with him being away it could be the chance to prove myself and force the manager to give me a more regular place in the side. I'd like to make a place my own in the starting XI.

"The match at Arsenal was probably my best game so far for City but I know I still need to improve my form. I've only been here five months and that will come."
