A bad start for Manchester City has only gotten worse, as Yaya Toure tweaked his groin on a long-range attempt that went far from the frame.

Yaya subbed off for Javi Garcia before the clock hit 19 minutes gone, and City already trails Liverpool 1-0 on Raheem Sterling‘s sixth-minute goal (on a magnificent through ball from Luis Suarez).

Handling broadcast duties for NBC with Arlo White, USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard rightly described Yaya as Manchester City’s “engine.”

Yaya has 18 goals and 5 assists in 30 Premier League matches this season, adding four goals and two assists in 17 Cup appearances.
