LONDON - Yaya Toure has declared himself fit for the final two matches of Manchester City's Premier League title push.

The Ivory Coast midfielder, a key figure in City's bid for the English championship trophy, was substituted during the second-half of the 3-2 win over Everton.

However, City manager Manuel Pellegrini insisted Toure's early exit at Goodison Park had been a precaution to make sure his star man was fit for the games against Aston Villa tomorrow and West Ham on Monday.

Toure told League Cup winners' City's website on Monday, "It was very important I came off (against Everton).

"It has been difficult for me in a short space of time to recover from the injury I picked up at Liverpool and prepare physically.

"If you are not fully prepared it is very tough, because you have to be at 100 per cent for these games and coming back is always difficult, especially at the end of the season, but I feel good."
