Manchester - Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini refused to be drawn into a war of words with Yaya Toure's outspoken agent after a 2-0 win over West Ham kept his side on course for a Champions League place.
However, Sunday's victory at Eastlands was marred by an injury to David Silva, who was taken to hospital with a suspected fractured cheekbone and injured collar bone.
But before kick-off there was another headache for under-pressure City boss Pellegrini following incendiary comments from Dimitri Seluk.
Toure's agent branded Pellegrini a "weak manager" and accused the club's Spanish executives Ferran Sorriano and Txiki Begiristain of failing to take responsibility and blaming his client for City's problems this season.
Pellegrini, when asked to respond to Seluk's claims, would only say "no comment".
But the latest potential disagreement with Toure will only cast more uncertainty on the the Ivory Coast international's City future.
