London: Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has said rival teams in Premier League have learnt how to play against them, and added that the champions must work on improving their Plan B to win games.
City’s struggle against relegation threatened Reading last weekend was typical of their patchy campaign as they failed to turn their dominance into goals, the Sun reports.
Toure believes one of the main reasons behind City’s success last season was that they caught many times by surprise, and added the same shock element is not present in them any more.
The African Player of the Year said since rival teams won’t want to get beaten again so they will pack men behind the ball and make it difficult for City to find a way through.
However, Toure said he was enjoying the new challenge that has been put in front of the team.
