Cape Town - Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure insists he doesn't mind playing fewer games for manager Pep Guardiola's side and is enjoying his time at the club.

The Sky Blues remain unbeaten across all competitions this season and have opened up an eight-point lead over Manchester United at the top of the Premier League standings.

During this incredible run, which now sees City boast a 17-game winning streak, Toure has been downgraded to more of a back-up option. 

The 34-year-old Ivorian has only played 29 minutes of Premier League football this season and has started only one UEFA Champions League game, but he is adamant that it doesn't faze him.

"You want me to play? Tell the manager," he said, as quoted by the Independent. 

"Look at my face; do you think I am frustrated? Am I enjoying? Of course. (If) I am frustrated... I would say to the manager 'I don't want to be on the bench and I want to go home'."
