London - Yaya Toure hopes Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has found a recipe for attacking success ahead of Saturday's visit to Tottenham.
Manuel Pellegrini's side saw a 100% start to the season ruined by successive home defeats against Juventus in the Champions League and West Ham in the Premier League.
However, an emphatic 4-1 victory at Sunderland in the League Cup in midweek suggested that a semblance of order had been restored.
City have averaged two goals per game in the Premier League so far this season, but Ivory Coast midfielder Toure has suggested that the early leaders will score even more once new signings Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne have settled in.
"In Africa we say it is like mayonnaise - you all blend together," Toure said.
"It is difficult at the moment because we have just bought players such as De Bruyne and Sterling.
"We need to make sure they feel part of the team."
Pellegrini picked a strong side at Sunderland, making only three changes - one of which was enforced as centre-back Eliaquim Mangala picked up a muscle injury during last Saturday's game.
Mangala's fitness will be assessed before the trip to White Hart Lane, as will that of fellow centre-back Vincent Kompany, who has missed two games since suffering a calf problem against Juventus.
"We will see from now to Saturday which players can recover," Pellegrini said.
"We have a lot of injured players - at least eight. I hope we can recover at least some of them."
