Having missed just three league games all season and weighing in with 20 goals from midfield, it's difficult to look past Yaya Toure as City's best-performing player this term. The improvements he's made to his game since joining City have been remarkable, with this season his finest to date.
His pace, power and drive from midfield makes him a unique talent, but 20 league goals now makes him invaluable. He can very often decide a midfield battle on his own, allowing City to get a grip of matches and dictate.
There's very little Toure can't do. He takes excellent set pieces, he tackles well, scores and is capable of lung-busting runs from deep. If anyone requires a snapshot of Toure's ability, his goal against Aston Villa in the penultimate game of the season sums him up perfectly.
